    Built it myself. No Warmoth stuff here. I finished it this evening after working on it all day. It's got a one piece poplar body, maple neck, ebony fingerboard, Nordstrand split coil pickups (wired passive), Schaller tuners, TI flats. Sounds really nice. Those pickups are great. They've really got that vintage tone. Here's a few pics.

    It was a blast to build. She plays great. Comfortable all the way around. Looking forward to my next one. :D
