Great first attempt.
I'm sure the next one will be perfect.
Just a few point's which you are fully aware of anyway.
As far as the routing goes (pups) I can see you did this freehand no?
Put together some templates for the important areas i.e. pups, neck joint, trem. This is what I'm in the process of doing.
The most accurate way to cut these (if you have access to one) is with an electric fretsaw and you can cut these from a decent 1/4" thick sheet of wood, cut the neck joint template "inside" the wood, i.e. you will have an overhang of wood on the template for the router to rest/move on.
If the body contouring was done by hand then I'm VERY impressed. (was it?)
The body shape looks good to me, and the grip is lookin' fine too.
All in all a great first attempt.
Lookin' forward to seeing the next one.
P.S. I'm especially impressed with the rear cavity routing...very fine work indeed (wish mine was the tidy)
