A decent view of the grain.

 

You can also see that the bridge position isn't quite right. It's close enough, in that it's possible to get the intonation right within the range of adjustment, but it should probably be a little bit closer to the neck. Moving it a small amount should be possible without revealing the screwholes from its current position but I'm not yet sure if I'm going to bother.

 

(No, the original body had no marks for the bridge position, so I worked it out by eye, by following the line of the neck, and by knowing what the scale length is supposed to be.)

 

As with the strat, those are schaller straplocks holding the strap on.
