My wife's favorite kind of green. I am excited about it already. :D

That reminds me of the Erick Hansel AZ that Ibanez does, which is one of my favorite understated finishes of all time.

I don't even know what you're doing with this, HNB, but I'm already excited because you put together some of the classiest builds.

I bought someone's Affinity Strat off craigslist solely for its black-->green burst once.

I am super excited about how this will look. A custom guard I found on Etsy is coming for it from Korea. When I saw the guard I wanted it on a green body like this. I think it is going to be cool. :)

Back sanded gently to remove raised grain.

I love how with some green stains you get those subtle yellow highlights.

Same. I love when staining a body gives you a “wow” factor. Nothing to do with anything I did really, just admiring how beautiful wood can be and how I am enjoying the color interacting with it. Sometimes I feel it is a same that a lot of guitars get covered in solid color covering up stuff like this. This looks so much nicer to me than if it were solid moss green.

Looks awesome, reminds me a lot of a blue JM I did years back.

That sounds like a winner, I never played an all rosewood neck.

I love that finish!

There aren't enough green guitars in the world.

I picked up an Allparts all rosewood strat neck from the Stratoshpere. I was going to put it on my JMJM, but I didn't realize how much DIY work or money that I was going to have to put into it. If you're comfortable doing everything DIY then it might be worth looking into one.
