Thanks Dan,
It's KLM9. Over z epoxy and glass.
That is a sweet piece of maple. I really did a hack job on the wiring today. I was short on time ( not that it went quickly) what a task, I really thought it would be easier. Nothing with this build went easy though. It was a real lesson for me.. One after the other. :roll:
I did the head stock inlay 3 times...
I sanded through the finish and fixed more time than I can remember.
It took 2 fret jobs to get it right.
And I learned about how titlebond shows through finish.
Ill see how it plays day after tomorrow .

Looks great but sounds like dog ah well poo. I gotta open it up and have a look one tone pot is not working. Maybe grounded out? Sounds muddled to my ear. Ant suggestion would be nice. It not quite set up right intonation sounds right but ill be lowering the action a bit more.
