Unfortunately the decal is sitting a tad too low

I polished the knobs because they wont take the nickelplatting, it is a special process and I don,t know how to do that yet.

That's looks really great, Eugen.

Now are you going to build one for yourself? Also, what is the finished weight? My '72 weighs in at a hefty 10.4 lbs and the one I built using Alder for the body weighed 8.2 lbs.
