Here it is, day 1 of the project. It's hard to tell from this angle but the bass is see thru white and you can see the grain of the swamp ash through the paint job.

Oversized strap buttons arrived today. The screws were still turning when installed so I popped in a small piece of toothpick in each hole and that helped tighten things up. I've actually just ordered some for my Sandberg because I liked them that much.

Pickups ordered today also!
