Body arrived. Looks nice. It has a US neck pocket vs Japanese one.

Jag-Stang pickguard won't work. The point on the lower horn sticks off the body.

Mustang one fits better, but needs a deeper curve.

Applied stain. It is looking good. Tonight I will lightly sand it and see if I want to do a second coat or if this is enough. I like it. :)

It is minwax dark walnut. I wanted normal, but they didn't have it in stock. It will be darker than the Costello, but that is ok with me. :)

I sanded the top lightly to take off some of the stain and show the wood and then did another coat to brown it back up.

Sanded.

I decided to do Z Poxy and Poly as a clear coat. I wanted the gold aspect that Z Poxy adds to the body color. Before I did it though, I checked parts and it all looks good. (Aside from the pickguard issue I mentioned.) Bridge holes line up fine.

Oh, here is the modified template I made for my pickguard. It is basically a Mustang guard with a steeper curve at the lower horn to match the Jag-Stang shape a bit better.

So happy accident/odd event happened as I sanded the Z Poxy flat. The Z Poxy caused the grain to rise. This caused some of the stain to sand off as I leveld the body creating a sort of zebra look to the guitar. At first I was a little pissed when it was one spot, but as I finished the front and back, I kind of dig it. Much more dramatic.

First coat of clear. I am very pleased with how the color is looking. Many more coats to go on over the week, but it should be set to start drying next week. :)

Looks ####ing great man. You should start making these guitars for profit man. With all of the connections on these forums and the others I've seen you on, you could basically start your own guitar building business. It's something you love to do and you could work from home and still be able to support yourself and loved ones. He's right, everything you touch looks ####ing incredible, and everybody and their mother loves modded offsets.

Just a thought, if you like doing it for the personal pleasure and enjoyment only, more power to you dude! Either way, that finish is killer!

The rough thing is this sort of stuff doesn't sell well on ebay. People there want stuff stock and factory made. Hand built guitars peers of mine have built never sell there and there stuff is loads better than mine.

The guy I got it from thought it was a GFS or Eastwood mini humbucker. :) Should be fun to try out.

Both of the companies make a great sounding mini hum. Probably GFS. Although I have absolutely no clue, I am not sure that Eastwood sells a solid cover mini hum separately. If it is an Eastwood, that'd be cool, as it probably would have come out of an H44 clone or the Wandre DLX clone.
