Pure ST Ash Joy-First Build

Comments: An amazing kit. The neck was beyond my expectations. Frets were perfect. Neck is straight as an arrow. Top notch quality. It took about 3 weeks and still needs tweaking and a logo on the headstock, but has become my favorite guitar in my collection. First coat was tinted black wood filler. Color tone liquid stain black on top. Lots of coats and sanding. Color tone liquid stain straw yellow on back. 3 coats. Tried and true oil finish, 3 coats. Seymour Duncan Everything Ace pickup set and basic wiring. Basic Fender 5 way switch and fender pots. D'Addario auto trim tuners. Only original part from the hardware is the bridge. Came out better then I imagined. Thanks to TheFretWire.com who produce a high quality kit that went beyond my expectations of a first time build. The many reviews I read were not wrong. Keep up the great work.
