Thanks man! I keep forgetting how outdated that picture is too. Since I took it, I've added a cover for the back of each case. I'm hoping to have it glued up and maybe get the round-overs done this weekend too. If I get all that done, I'll be able to start staining too.
I find the 90 degree edges to work well with the cabinet, I would just knock the sharpness off with some 220, but I can not see what is in your head, I just got one photo to go off of. It will be a fun synth either way.

Oh, I intend to. That's just how it is after rough cut and assembly. Every edge will be getting a small round-over. What inspired me is the old-school Moog System 55:

Since I'm building the core of my synth as a MiniMoog Model D "clone", I wanted an aesthetic that screamed "Moog" as well. Basically, I just wanted this in a smaller and Eurorack format. I'll have the little garage for the keyboard too, but it will likely be a slightly deeper skiff-style box with Eurorack modules in it (what I posted a few posts above as my "control module board" (the one with the black rack with hinges on the back) instead of a keyboard.

Well that explains why the sharp corners looked right, Bob programmed them into me, sneaky sneaky.

This is where it's at right now. There's a crack along/close to the glue line after I tried the "boil-in-the-bag" method of getting the paint out of the cavities. I moved about a month ago and am finally just getting my shop back in order. It's right near the top of my to-do list. I've got all the parts and everything else ready to go, once I re-glue that line and finish stripping/sanding the rest of the old paint off. It's been a rough few weeks with a few things, but I'm hoping that'll be my next project once the garage is organized.

I know you usually prefer a bigger pickup at the neck, but what would put in this were it a righty?

maybe something like a p90 in the bridge and a mini humbucker in the neck?

i've also had good experences using a hot tele pickup in the bridge and a PAF in the neck.

but if i had that body, i'd stick the short scale conversion neck on it, paint it violet over black.

That'd be rad. I could see it in a different life as violet over black with a Tele bridge and mini-humbucker in the neck 8)
