Pretty good work, man!
Yellow plate? That's original! :)
How many hours did it take? It was already scratched before?

Yeah, ha the yellow plate does raise some eyebrows, its meant to look aged, but maybe its a bit over aged? I brought the plate online and have always wondered if I should change it, to make it look more authentic. The guitar was originally a Mexican fender that i took a chisel to! It took a fare while to build, but maybe not as long as some I've seen on the forum that have much more attention to detail. You could say it isn't complete, it does need new tuners and a set up.

I'd say its more of a Rory style guitar than a precise replica. At the moment I'm Currently building a Jimi Hendrix style guitar.
