The closest you'll get is Wizz pickup rings without spending a fortune. Otherwise just buy Dimarzio or Gibson historic rings - they're not quite the right colour, but if you're not willing to spend the $$ then beggars can't be choosers.

So im in the process of sealing up the back with minwax aerosol laquer. I have amber die from stewmac that i ordered by accident a two years ago so i will be using that for the top. I have a can of stewmac cherry nitro. Ill be ordering black from stewmac along with two cans of clear so i can buff it too a shine. The finish will be thin which i like. Cant wait too hit this beutiful wood cherry.

Are you planning on doing the routs for the switch and electrics cavity covers anytime soon??

Usually the woodwork stuff is done before you start finishing......mainly as you can introduce scratches in the process

I am very happy for you, OP. You've got balls, and this guitar looks soooo fine. Thanks for the pics so far.
