I made a forum post way back while I was working on this and then proceeded to fall off the face of the earth for like, 2 years. I used acrylic paint on a wood body. Coated in several coats of polycrylic finish for protection.
The body itself came from a Saga guitar kit. All the internals, as well as the transparent pickguard and pick-up covers were purchased from other suppliers and assembled by American Music in Seattle. I'll try and get the specs from the guy who owns it. Thing plays like a gold knife spreading nutella on french toast.
