  1. Man this took longer that I would have guessed, but I really like the final results.

    I'm going to post a thanks on the setup page to those on that board that helped me out along the way, but I'd like to say thanks to Hambone and pkr2 upfront for taking the time to help with a couple of problems I was having sorting out the electronics. Wouldn't have mattered how pretty it turned out if it didnt make any sound!

    Edit: After looking at the(bad) photos, I thought I'd toss a few details in. It's Fender butterscotch blonde over a 3 piece maple body. Can't tell fron the photos, but the grain shows through nicely. The pickguard and knobs are rosewood, stained to match the fretboard(the biggest pain of the project by far). I cut the pg myself, and also put the pearl dot markers in the knobs.
