Waiting on the custom preamp before doing control holes. Threaded inserts installed for pickups and control cover. 
A couple of sealer coats and headstock decal applied. 




Amazing - I get the feeling a few of us around here will be green with envy when this is done!

I got the burly bass finished. Well, apart from one gold knob. Wood covers worked out well but I may change the pickups and preamp. EMGs need to be super close to the strings compared to other pickups, and having a wood cover, albeit 1.5mm, I feel this hinders the clearance required. The custom preamp pots have values that are specific to EMG, which is why that may need to be swapped out. It’s all good fun though!
