Here's my latest building project. This is a prototype for a batch of six that I'll be building soon. This is a piece of real dense southern yellow pine that I've had drying for 3 or 4 years. Pickup is a sealed humbucker. 22.5" scale. I hadn't really intended to sell this but will probably put on the "For Sale" section soon to help fund the rest of the builds. I'll probably use ash and/or mahogany for the others and maybe some more of this pine if I can find a good piece. Might even do an 8 string or two in the batch.

Joe, I use 1/16" plastic, mask it then draw on the frets and markers then cut it out with an exacto knife and spray paint it. Lotta work - I'm trying to figure a way to silk screen it.
