    Thanks, I don't use a lot of gold but something about it just worked for this one. It's nearly done, I had to wait for some parts to come in the mail and got swamped with too many other obligations in life, but hopefully I'll have the final pics up before long. Regardless I have to have it done by the end of this month, that's when I'm delivering it.

    It's gorgeous, but I would replace that switch tip with one more amber-colored or gold. Everything is dynamite though

    Amazing, I'm loving the matching grain control cover, its seamless, like it's not even there!

    That's what I thought too, or at least more cream looking to match the binding.

    Didn’t even notice it until I read your post; I had to go back and look again to make sure there even WAS a cavity cover.

    @DistinguishedPapyrus: SUPER clean work man, dude is gonna love it!

    I'm assuming he must have used magnets to get it with no screws.

    That or it's so tight it's in by pressure.

    Makes sense; looks like there’s a little indent to lift it towards the front of the body if you zoom in. I might just be seeing things tho...

    It is held in place by magnets. Went with magnets pulling against set in screws. The "indentation" in the back was a little bit of a slip up with the soldering pen. whoops.

    Ya really it looks like it's meant to help pop the cover off.

    Mate, this is a pro effort. String pull is perfectly straight, the wood choice is gorgeous and that matching grain cavity cover takes proper planning. Really nice body shape as well.

    Adding you on Insta now!
