looks great! Is the finish just clear or did you tint it?

It's a second 58 V with a blackguard. I got two kits because they had one in closeout stock because of some figuring in the Korina at the crotch of the "V" and it was marked down quite a bit. I wanted to get started! I also thought that the one I had ordered would take a long time to deliver (it didn't) LOL I sourced all the parts double! It was a learning curve on finding the parts! Also, the skid rubber and routing jig was a bit of a pain in the ass LOL I do think the kits are really-really good. I had Starr Guitars here in Orlando do the work, they do excellent work! The Explorer should be very nice and a bit easier to part source!

It's lightly ambered and I believe that part coloring to these is a touch of the base yellow(used on bursts)...
