This is cool. I like the shape & positioning of control knobs. I've used pallets for many things but never for a guitar build. Just shows what you can do if you're creative.

Good on you for using a pallet.  I did that once.

Lefty

Only had one piece of wood long enough, so placed it vertically. Feels good in your hand.
