Just got home from work to find some boxes on my doorstep... It came out better than I ever even imagined!
The pieces of tape on the body are just my own markings for where I will drill holes for the controls.

Wow, that is simultaneously one of the most stunning finishes I've seen as well as one of the most ballsy moves I've heard in a while! Good luck on the holes!

Ok, I have to ask, because I've spent a good 30 seconds here laughing.  In the last picture of the body and neck together... what IS that substance that's, um, dripped and dried on the fretboard?

Here some shots from a camera phone after I put here together and drilled all my holes.... Came out NICE!
MIDI/PIEZO pickup is amazing I will post a video on youtube for all to see. BTW all the "spots" on the neck that everyone was talking about are actually the wood character.  The ebony had grain markings that looked like some..uhh... liquid dropped on it.... seemed to almost dissapear when I treated the fretboard with some oil.

Post a pick of the control cavity!  I'm curious to see how you got everything to fit in there.

Guitar looks amazing.  Amber is a great choice.

That is one great looking axe.  Let us know how the midi / piezo works out as I'm thinking of doing something similar.  :glasses9:
