    Middle of the open book looks too rounded. Doesn't look horrible, but doesn't look like a Gibson to me.

    Other than that, the wood looks great. Are you going for some sort of Peter Green/Gary Moore thing? Going to relic it?

    its kinda like peter green meets beano era clapton.Beano style pickups but a green looking guitar and knobs.No ive reliced the parts but im not touching the body,i wont shine it up too much so itll look kinda old.

    Dude! Look up "personal hygene" subsection "fingernail clippers"! How do you play guitar with those claws? I cut my fingernails every week!

    Beyond that... I like the finish so far, like the white humbucker. PG off!

    I'm pretty much as non-metro as you can get, but I find that fingernails get in the way of playing, at least with the fret hand.

    its lighting and flash making it look yellow.The nitro will bring out the flames more once it is applied.What do you guys think about the headstock and the question:pickguard on or off,and what about the knobs?

    Go "appetite" with this one I say! Gold reflectors, leave the color as is and leave the darned pickguard off.
    You can always put it on later on when you feel you have to.
