Swamp ash and rosewood, caramel and chocolate. :icon_scratch:
My drummers little girl came up with the description, she's only four. The bridge pickup is a JB and the neck a SD Hot P90. The color came out as I'd hoped. I used clear satin "Cabothane" with some stain mixed in that I had left over from a maple neck I put on my fiesta P bass. I don't know if I will leave it as is or play around some more. It's a nice simple guitar to tear to pieces.

And before you ask how does it sound?......Upside Down! :evil4: :evil4: :icon_jokercolor:

The first pic. is truer to the real color, I'll shoot some outside 1st chance

I already have a couple of guitars with wrapover bridges and I wanted this one to be different to other LP types, hence the strat hardtail.

I really like the look of this guitar...good work.
The only thing I would change is having the pickups matching colours - but I think that is more of a personal thing. Still looks fantastic.

You hit the nail on the head.

It may get a bit chilly, but then you only need a coat and is fine. Today still winter, i was walkin' around in a T shirt and shorts.
