So after quite some time of work here and there I have finally finished my first build. Neck through, 13 boards pressed together in the body. Walnut, Mahogany, and Maple. ebony fretboard; DiMarzio Model J's; Bartolini HR 5.3 electronics. I carved the top to a nice arch all the way around. Finished with a pore filler, then a sanding sealer, then 6 coats of Lacquer. Sounds Great.
