Well, I finally finished building this Metal flake Blue Telecaster clone from a kit.
All went well, except for paint – Hard to get a spray bomb with a good nozzle that won’t splatter/drip. Took about 4 different nozzles before I found a good one, but that’s after sanding the paint splatter/drops off 4 times. The clear coat went n well 1st time out; applied 6 coats of clear and buffed.
I think this was a SAGA kit, I had it so long forgot, left in the box for many months before I started.

Well, back to building more cigar box guitars, that was a lot more fun.

Thanks Jim.
Dallas, it plays and sounds very good.
I had a hard time setting intonation so I took it to the local guitar shop and for $30 they set it up for me.
Very happy with it.
