Comments: This was my first build and I'm pretty pleased with it. The flame figuring in the maple was perfect for a natural finish. There are a few cosmetic changes that I'd do next time around but I think she turned out quite nicely. Everything is straight from the kit except for the strings. I put heavy gauge D'Addario round wounds on her. She's quite a boomer. Part of me really, REALLY wants to make her a fretless. But I'm just going to enjoy her as she is for a while.
