Thanks! I got shielding finished and installed bridge cups and shielded the pickguard. :)

Gonna look great! Green guard is awesome. Love the relic, it can be an acquired taste.

That stain really does make a difference, there's no such thing as pristine looking wood where the finish has worn away.

So, this is a Kermit the Frog kind of guitar. Well, I reckon that's a fine thing indeed. :)
This is an excellent rectangle

Gonna call it Stargazer. A pic of lefty kermit with his banjo on the back. I like the idea of the song to make your dreams real.

If you slapped a B&B neck on that I would be having some problems. :?

That thing looks great, but that name? Stargazer? Too spacey. It looks more like bog dweller to me. :freako:

Not a big fan of the over relic guitars, however, that aside I'm liking the look of this one re the colours of both body and guard, never seen that guard before. Looking forward to seeing the progress of this project. :)

I've always wanted a green sparkle Jazzmaster. Now that I know these pickguards exist, i kind of want to build one.

That's a crazy spitfire guard and I agree about stain clicking so much better with the green finish. Been out of the loop for while, I had no idea green is a spitfire option now.

For sure. He made these a ways back but I imagine he would do one again if you ordered one through his page. :)
