You should put a picture of how it was originally in the cavity.

Amazing work and the message in the cavity is a great idea!

I really like the disclosure message in the cavity.

I also like how it seems as though the last coasts of clear will go OVER that message, so any future owner/seller would have a harder time removing it if they were trying to misrepresent.

And covering it up would also mean covering up the all-important body date. And photographing the body date for an eBay listing also means photographing that note.

Brilliant work!

how about beating up the finish hard, giving it a red tort guard, a single coil in the bridge and an old Epiphone humbucker in the neck, eh?

Wow,
I'm new to this site, and this is the first long thread that I have read. I am utterly impressed by the courage to take on this project and see it through. Excellent work, man.

What’s your tinting process like? Sorry for the noob question!

I use the tinted neck amber from ReRanch, and try to mist it on as evenly as possible. It may be easier with professional spraying equipment, but works ok with a spray can.

Many light/almost dry coats of mist work much better than wet coats of paint - which will make stripes/splotches happen. ...and then you'll need to sand the tint off and start over.

I tried the tinted lacquer from Behlen, but it is waaaaay too dark.
