Perhaps a scroll, definitely 3 single coils, and maybe an F hole.

Beautiful work of art. It makes me want to play guitar, build guitars....and I kind of want to eat it...having a strange craving for seafood all of a sudden 😂

Thanks! Should it be served with beer or wine?

Wicking in thin CA left it looking like this.

I broke open those bubbles and did multiple fills with CA.That left a smooth surface. but was still visible.And after a week it sank, as expected. What follows is a long process of adding a bit of tinted lacquer to diffuse the visible areas and lacquer spot fills over that. Rinse and repeat and finally add enough lacquer to stand proud and leave it that way for a few months and then level and polish it again.

That is where it stands right now. It is smooth today, and I'm going to finish the glamour shots in this condition. I found myself in bright low angle sun again and took this shot specially for @Bizman62.

And the rest for all of us.

My goodness!!!  That would stop the traffic in these parts....

Out of a score of 10 I'd give it 25!

Thanks Andy.

I used to have a Great Dane and a teacup Pomeranian that would do the same thing when I took them for walks together...

If I wore a hat, it would be off right now. 

I appreciate the sentiment Carl.

And I love the paradox you've built. Since you don't wear a hat....is your head not bare.....

Exactly. 😉

Not wearing a hat right now seems a correct yet superfluous tribute. Nonetheless, I don't make the rules, so uncovered it is.

Hat falls off?

Certainly, if it's a poor fit.

Some newspaper rolled under the sweatband does a nice shim for a tighter fit.

My hats seemed to shrink at the same pace as my hairdo got skinnier. Or, did my head grow so fast it pushed the hair off? 🙄

When your head stops growing, will your hair catch up and make an appearance?

I'm afraid that's not going to happen. The collective and cumulative wisdom of this community will most likely continue to fill my brain which will require more space, thus never stopping the growth.

Maybe you've got it better.

Instead of pushing my hair off,  all new knowledge I gain pushes old knowledge out to make room.

And there seems to be no guidelines for what goes.. I could know something yesterday, learn some cool stuff tonight, and tomorrow have no clue what happened to that thing we were talking about yesterday.:P

I could stare at the contour of the back cover plate forever. Incredible.

Judging by your switch position, you are favoring the neck pup. What does it the guitar sound like?
