I actually made this a while ago for my son. He planned to add a neck, bridge, electronics, etc to it. I visited him in NC this past October and found that he’s a lot like his dad. I.e. his ambitions and reality aren’t always in sync. I’m sure it’ll get done at some point, but I thought I’d post this anyway. It’s made from figured black walnut, curly maple and padauk. This finish is just a few coats of clear lacquer. My son will add more coats (hopefully) later.

Wow, that’s a beauty. I like the wood combos as well.
