Just black paint with satin clear instead of gloss. Very Happy

Got it wetsanded and wired up today. I need more parts still, but progress! I ended up using the mini toggle to bypass the tone and volume or use the 500k pots.

Long time but I finally ordered tuners and a nut so I can get this one finished. LOL I will likely take another shot at my satin to make sure I dig it. Been wussing out at the idea of drilling the neck. I have done one before, but I always get nervous....

Had forgotten about this one (you build lots of guitars).

I stand by my initial assessment though:

Done! Sounds great.Only thing I want to do maybe is file the bridge a little so strings don't want to pop out as easily. Smile Tuners installed fine as well as the nut and such. Took me awhile to adjust the neck and make sure it was straight when I drilled the mounting holes. (One of my least favorite things to do... LOL) It turned out great though so no problem there.

It turned out beautiful. I really love the finish. Have you considered Bronco knobs on there?

Totally would, but I don't have a set and iirc they are pricey?

I'm sure someone on here found a source last year and bought loads of them. Try the classifieds Chris.
