I am really proud of my new baby girl. This is the first electric guitar that I have built. It's a swamp ash body, ebony fretboard with maple neck, and a walnut and birds eye maple 5layer composite pickguard. I've kept everything a natural finish or wax and placed some pieces of Trinitite under the pickguard in some specially fashioned holds. Thanks for checking it out!

That's gorgeous, DW! Love the bird's eye maple pick guard. And the resident guitar player here (Mr. Sunshine) is also extremely impressed- beautiful job!! : )

Does it make you play like Jerry also? That would be something. How long have you been a luthier for? Nice job.

Nice! Did you do all the wood work too? I just finished my first Warmoth build, but I'd like to get into shaping the wood also.
