I did this after watching a video by "Sumisu", the god of junk guitar reproduction on Nico-douga.
The back of the neck is also painted black, so I plan to leave the neck as it is for now. I may oil-finish the neck if I feel like it.
I bought the body for 1,650 yen, and because I gathered all the parts to make it, it cost more than a set of junk.
The knobs are volume and volume is a remnant of the time when I tried to make it cheaply.
I was going to put SPH-3 on it, but I gave up to make it cheaply, so I used Bare Knuckle Pickups modern high-gain Nailbomb.
I like the shorter cutaway because the grain of the wood looks like antlers.
