That looks awesome Thomas..I like the idea of Sapele/Ash (I think the first guitar I ever built may have been that combo...but was so long ago I can't remember for sure. I know the top was Ash but not sure of the bottom, might have to sand it down to check :rofl:

Thanks guys! was a pain to make but was definitely fun all then way down to every bit of the guitar. I think I'll build a telecaster now.
