    Clicked your link and checked out the pics, and was blown away on how nice that turned out.

    The grain looks amazing and I'll bet those frets are going to be downright sexy to do bends on! :naughty:

    Those fret ends look superb. That's such an important aspect of ultimate feel -- I'm envious of your touch and skill. Beautifully done!
