    Gorgeous!
    Very jealous. If that was available at the time when I bought mine I would definitely have sprung for that.
    Looks wonderful! Any thoughts on finish? Or is it too early to decide that?

    That's a hell of a paint job, friend-o! Love what you've done with the heel sculpting as well. I'm about to try it (likely with far-uglier results) on a build of mine.

    Bravo!
    That's a heck of a shop too! Nice tools.
    I like your vision, can't wait to see how it turns out.
    What kind of paint did you use? and how did you apply it? Looks good from the one pic.

    Just opted for some zebra style pickups myself. I also love your fretboard inlays.
    I think that's an ambitious finish idea! Not in a bad way, like a great, badass way.
