Thanks all. I'm pretty pleased with the way it came out. I'll be doing a video soon (probably this weekend).

Nothing like the sound of steel on steel and a p90!

Coming on a treat!

This has a real nice pro look to it. My only suggestion would be to oil the saddle and nut to darken them a bit. Great looking build.

It's been neat to see this thru all stages of its progress!  Can wait for a sound sample!
