She's Done!















Some nice imperfections that came out on the back of the headstock:


My favorite part of the guitar is this little beauty mark in the wood:

Usually Firebirds would have the pickup selector in there, but since his only has one pup, he doesn't have a toggle.
Looks a bit out of place, but I don't know if you could even buy Firebird pick guards without that hoe.

Also, this guitar, looks friggen awesome. Firebirds with P90's look sexy. Great work on this one dude!

Just what Charvel1995 said. I wasn't able to find anyone selling firebird pickguards without the hole since most have the pickup toggle there...
