    Branding the headstock was interesting, the smoke and sound of the wood was a little scary but it smelled nice :)

    The matte-rustic look is superb.I bet she age's into a nice heirloom patina.Hope she plays and sounds as good as she looks.

    I like the look, and it occurred to me that you could do a sort of sunburst like that.

    How did you find the body weight? I really want to order a body from Rosser but he describes the wood as being dense and heavy, which is holding me back.

    By crikey, that's stunning!

    At the start of the thread I was thinking that a parchment colour pickguard would match well, but the black looks great.

    Got the body, neck and hardware a few years ago, pre-mauled by someone else. I equipped the guitar with a set of left-handed Tonerider Classic Blues pups and high-end electronics. It’s my Jimi tribute guitar. Holy moly! It rocks! (Hope the pics are showing.)

    Thanks, she's getting there. Like I mentioned, the neck needs a fret leveling so there are a few high spots but I love the sound.

    It's a little heavy but not unbearably. I'd love it to be lighter but it's still acceptable.
