Kermit seals the deal on this one - that's sweet.

Mean Green Decal. :D Little bit cramped on a Stratocaster headstock, but still good. :)

i love that clip. i think i've mentioned on here that i'm a big fan jim henson. every year i make it my duty to watch a lot of the muppets movies around Christmas...... also me and my dad watch the back to the future trilogy every christmas eve.

as for the build. god damn you're keeping busy...... and that's coming from the guy who's got 3 builds going on right now. but your builds are always super fun to keep an eye on.

Some good news and bad news. :D I got the guitar together and it looks really good. It is going to sound great, but I have some issues I need to fix.

The Mojo Tone P90 pole pieces are too long so I cannot get the pickups low enough to work without the strings touching the pole pieces. Even with the neck double credit card shimmed, the neck pole pieces are touching the strings.

The other tragedy is I pulled up my decal putting the string tree on. Never done that before. I guess I didn't put enough clear over it. I will probably leave it. Given how beat up the look is, it fits. It is just a little bummer. LOL

Otherwise I am really pleased with how it looks. :)

You’re right - it looks fantastic! The decal is fine the way it is, IMO, but if it bugs you, you can always change it out later.

What are you going to do about the pick ups? I think I’d probably put different pick ups in rather than shimming any further. YMMV

Nice job! Personally, I know I would’ve gone way overboard and painted the pick up covers in some sort of dark green Krylon. :-X
