Actually I stained the body and sprayed it with a polycryllic clear coat..it looks very light in the crappy cell phone pic i took there, so it kinda looks unfinished......here is one of the body before,

here is a better one of the body after i stained it and a couple coats of clear

Here is another mock up pic i took before mounting the pickups...you can see the English Oak color a little better here

Welcome to the board.

The 400 is a cool guitar. I hope to own one some day.

The fireman looks like its coming along nicely.

Nice man!

I would say it needs a pick guard though.

Yeah I was thinkin that but i dunno....i also tried pickup rings but i liked the look of direct mount on this guitar....i like the stripped down look...I spoke to my shop today...he had her strung up and he said she played nice...so now hes just gotta wire her up he said she may be done tomorrow or by the latest early next week...I cant wait to get her back!!!

    Dude, that looks just amazing! Did you spray the clear coating yourself? (lol, this sentence comes over like a bad 70s porn-dialogue)

    And if so, how did you avoid dust?
