This is coming out beautiful.
Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world, Elwood, you must be" she always called me Elwood "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant.

thanks for all kind words=)

i have been sanded it down a little to smooth it out, i have been using 600 and 1500 grit sand paper.
I'm thinking of to blend some white in the color and lighten the cover plate up a little, what do you think about that? could be nice with some color change.

With as dark as the neck is, and assuming you're using the same pickups in the brown Futurama on the previous page, I'd almost like to see it painted black.

Anyway, you already noticed the same thing I did - it definitely needs to be a different color than the body.

I don't know if i think black is the right color, I'm think of something like this. what do you think about that? just a slightly darker.

Awesome!

What are you using for the bridge posts? I have a guitar that has the same Hagstrom bridge but didn't come with the posts and I'm having a hard time finding the correct style.
