    Very nice! And good that you used the 3 brass saddle bridge instead of the 6-saddle flat bridge.

    Is that a charcoal color on the body?

    yea i like the compensated barrel saddles versus the other individual ones i tried first. much more sustain this way, and intonation is perfect.

    and i sprayed it with flat black rustoleum and took sand paper to it.

    I *love* that finish! The clouds make it a lot more interesting than a regular matte black. Which type of Rustoleum finish did you use?
