This is the body with just the outline cut out.

 

Here’s the body with the neck joint and the pickup cavities routed out. I made a mistake on the back pickup…. ooooops

The fretboard, made from a piece of macassar ebony. I cut the crescent moon inlays from mother-of-pearl. In this picture, they’re just sitting on the fretboard. I’m not sure if I will just use moons, or if I will also use stars. Stay tuned.
