It's got an elegant but yet simple look to it. 8)

Thanks a lot!

Actually, I was surprised how well it came out. It plays well, has a nice, vintage sound, no wolf tones anywhere and sustains for ages even in the highest positions. Sure, the finish is not perfect and I've made a lot of small mistakes, but all in all it's a very nice instrument to play.
Looking forward to the next summer: thinline tele project:)
