Quality seems good and I think I got quite lucky with the grains everywhere and darkness of fingerboard. Relieved that the neck size and shape (59 roundback 1 3/4) which was a total punt seems great in the hand.  I predict an easy build  :laughing7:

Disappointed to stumble across another Cybercaster, the Lace Cybercaster - looks like a nice guitar though.

I burnished the neck, lemon oiled the board, improved the fret ends with 400 and 600 sand paper, rolled the board edges with a screwdriver, sanded and applied first 3 coats of Tru oil. All very rushed and underdone but I wanna play this thing!

Having some difficulty adding pics from Android
