Thread: New 4-string Build from J.L. Smith: Still at it!

    Default New 4-string Build from J.L. Smith: Still at it!

    I just finished up this one up, and thought I'd post it: I enjoyed making this one, as I had plenty of time, and nothing pressing me to finish it up quick. I personally like the retro look, with an Artic White satin body, and Mint Green pickguard and knobs, maple fretboard with wide width Jescar fretts.
    Thanks for looking!

    Looking good, might I ask what pickup you've used?

    That is very tasteful. I don't recognise the bridge. Is that one of your own?
