That thing is FIRE. Especially love what you did with the guard—impressive!!!

Shit, now I want one. :blush:
Thanks man. The guard is StewMac material, with a 1/8” round over edge instead of an angled bevel. Heh, It actually looks like fire when looking through it with a backlight.
Very cool—I particularly love that bevel, and no wonder it looks unique w that rounded edge. Super tight work around the control plate too!

Since I know absolutely nothing about DIY (though definitely am interested in taking the plunge),what do you use to cut the guard?
Hey popvulture thanks for saying. I'm a long-time DIYr and recently got into full builds. So yeah I make them old-fashioned, no CNC for me. I learned how to use the round over after making several Gretsch-style clear plexi guards. The round over bit is not as forgiving as a 45 or 30 degree bevel, the table has to be dead flat/square everywhere, and if it's not (mine is not), then you have to keep the cutting edge at one point. All the chatter left by the router has to be polished off by hand too, if it's to look this clean. Since I'm set up for this kinda work long-term, I don't sweat it, but now that I think about it, I used a bandsaw, router w/ table, two to three bits, sanding/polishing equipment, drill w/ various bits.

And especially ANYTHING Tim Harman of Tru arc does. Those serpentunes have completely transformed every gretsch I've ever owned.
