You had the right idea with the gold hardware.  I have an all natural Jackson SL2H that came with chrome hardware.  I like the chrome, but my first thought was that gold would have really set off the natural wood coloration.

Real cool. Nice to see a guitar with a really solid 'theme' or 'scheme'. Not a big fan of those knobs (I think I've seen stuff like that on ebay), they look cheap to me  :dontknow:

Actually my idea came from a Jackson SL2HMAH that I saw in a catalog a while back, just with Swamp Ash instead of the Mahogany.  The knobs..eh I think they are alright.  I like the fact that they are shorter and stick out from the body less, but the pearloid inserts aren't really doing much for me.  I like that they have graduated "rings" around them, just not too wild about the inserts.  I wish Warmoth would carve in around the knobs like on my ESP carved top so the knobs wouldn't stick out so much.
Thanks for all the comments!!

That is awesome.  After building mine and seeing such beautiful guitars that show off the wood, I don't think I'll ever paint a guitar a solid color again(unless it's poplar).  The gold makes it look classy and vintage.  Nice work! :headbang:

Wow, that is an Amazing build. Make sure to submit that one to the official Warmoth gallery too if you haven't yet.

Truly nice build.

I'm not a fan of EMG's but other than that the axe is incredible.  :kewlpics:

The Pickups are Bartolini PBF's.  They look a lot similar to EMG's but with a raised Bartolini logo on the pickup that didn't show up in the picture.  I'm not a fan of EMG's either, these sound much, much better than any EMG, active or passive, that i've ever heard.
