Have you considered just getting your corneas dyed ?

Mmmmm, I hadn’t thought of that...

Perhaps tinted glasses would be easier though.

Boing! I have the same hold going on right now! Doh!
That’s a deal on the neck - my last two MK necks have been around $600 landed.

Looks awesome. Well done.

Couple of questions, and I don't mean to be flippant:

Is the fingerboard actually rosewood or walnut? I note on the Musikraft website they say they have some stock of reclaimed Brazillian walnut from the Coney Island boardwalk that is very like rosewood but not subject to CITES. Is this the 'rosewood' you refer to? I ask mainly because I'm thinking of ordering a neck from them, and the fingerboard on yours looks very nice, so I'm hoping I can expect something in the same ballpark.

Did you order real clay dots or imitation? I'm told the imitation clay dots look basically identical to the real thing, but they're a cost-free option.

Wow, a CITES certified neck for $200?! Certification per unit is $100 (more inEU) and takes up to 2 months to process...sometimes longer.

I got the Coney Island stuff also but it was the Brazilian Walnut. It’s hard as nails and looks like a rich chocolate.

I think you got a true steal here!
