Nice man. At least you got something from that mess up.

I love explorers

Looking great! Glad to see you could salvage something from the ruined guitar

If it wasn't for the closeup shot of the heel I would think your grass was astroturf, it looks so thick and perfect haha

Holy crap that's a nice guitar (and I'm in the same boat as Papabear, I generally don't go for explorers). I wouldn't have even noticed the bookmatch if you hadn't said it - and I'm still not convinced. Nice job on that join, and the build in general!
Thats a beautiful guitar. Great job!
