Comments: This is my first kit build and though it came out of the box a spalted maple top & head stock, I wound up taking it into a much different direction.

Lots of upgraded goodies including locking tuners, zebra pickups (yeah, I know they're reversed, I just liked the way they looked), 500k pots, .022caps and an actual 23k gold-leafed top.

It took some time, but the gold leafing wasn't as difficult as I first thought and the end result is nothing short of awesome...a real gold-top that has a great patina & sound.

Thinking a Resonator Acoustic kit next...
