Comments: First build and very happy. Started with black dye on the body and sanded back. Then added transtint dark red w/alcohol and created a semi burst effect. Then finished with tru oil, 17 coats on the body and 12 on the neck. Used all the original parts except for knobs, switch and strap attachments. Wanted to see how pots and humbuckers sounded. Will probably switch humbuckers out at some point. Neck fit tight and was surprisingly straight. Only a few frets needed touching up as they were a hair high. Overall a very fun build and a playable instrument.
