Uh...Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes. Watching this one being built feels like seeing the woolly mammoth being reconstructed genetically. Way to go, sir!

Nice! What does the small round text say?

Couldn't resist assembling this guitar.
It still needs wiring, polishing and a setup. Plays well off the bat though. Doesn't even need a fret level.
I would love it if Fender made these.

Thanks.
It's aged pearl. Quite subtle but I couldn't capture it in this light.
