    Thanks Sonic.

    The downside is that Northern Ash is even heavier than I realized! It will be a heavy guitar.

    I haven't finished sanding and filling the back and sides, but I couldn't help myself. The blue went purple as well, so I did get a tad worried, but at least with this one, I have the opportunity of sanding it back if required.
    I'll be painting over this with clear this time around.

    First coat of TO drying.

    I am pretty proud of my headstock shaping. i didn't want to copy the "F" one, but I also didn't want it to look out of place. It is a familiar shape but not the same as any one brand. (I think?)

    I also can't believe the flame in the maple neck! It's wonderful!

    Thanks Deddy!

    You can't see the flame in the neck, but it's really nice. Yes you are right. Almost the "I" brand but different end. Anyway, I like it.

    Man, what a nice grain! What is the blue you used? That would look amazing on a GTL kit!
