The pickguard protects the top against damage when you really lean into it.
The tailpiece and headstock are made of the same piece of wood and with corresponding design.
I chose to give the guitar a "honey blonde" finish.
To get the bindings to glow and form a nice contrast to the guitarīs color, they are taped off before the shaded laquer is sprayed.
The finish will take about two weeks drying time before it can be polished.
After that, there will be some new pictures ...
