Very nice! I kinda like the no pickguard look. I hope it sounds as nice as it looks.

Thanks, guys! It plays great! Flat fretboard and low action. I'm saving the outer binding on the pickguard
and will replace the tortoise. Also considering a clear pickguard...

The pickup is pretty quiet, measured roughly 3.5K ohms, but, sounds great through
an amp. The cover is rough. I've left it "distressed" for now.

At least the tone circuits work!!! It's really cool, thanks for the support!!
