You have done a great job mate! The only thing you could look at is the back of the neck/head. On Rory's one it has paint on the back of the head and the tip of the neck but bare on the neck. Yours looks like the head and the neck is bare. Fantastic job though.

I wouldnt even thing about spending thousands on a fender custom shop model,if you ask me they have done a piss poor job, and considering they had rorys guitar for referance,they have missed so much detail that its un true.The eagle on the horn looks nothing like rorys.very poor indeed.I have still not finished guitar yet, as im a bit OCD when it comes to detail.Expect more photos in next few days.

Excellent work, are you going to get an aged case for it? also which pickups did you go for?
