    Don’t understand.

    You had a 63 Junior neck and built the body with mismatched batwing, humbuckers, Nashville with trapeze tailpiece?

    Impressive... but I'd want to smooth out the carves.

    I got a neck from a project somebody else had done. I decided to order a body an go with the SG. It has a maple fretboard. I wanted a worn unique look .

    After looking at a few SGs I see what you mean. I still have some tweaks to make .
    Thanks
    My plan is to redo the fretboard.

    That fretboard is rosewood if original.
    They didn't use baked maple until recent years.

    The body was pre-fab, was it already routed for the humbuckers and control cavity?

    Well, the camera needs work that's for sure. I mean, the guitar looks nice and all from what one can see but the devil is in the details, which the camera in question seems to have a hard time capturing so impossible to have an opinion on the actual work. As I understand it, you took an old neck, the maple one, put a new fretboard on an attached it to a body?
