Standard bolt on uses T-nuts and high tensile bolts to ensure a tight and repeatably strong neck joint without repercussion on the integrity of the wood as found with traditional wood screws over time.

I offer the following finishes to any guitar but will happily recommend what I believe is best for your build.
Oil finish: Brings the wood to life and allows the natural beauty of the wood to come through as well as letting the wood resonate naturally. However this provides little protection to the instrument in the event of knocks and scratches.
Nitrocellulose: Previously used by Fender and other guitar manufacturers it provides a thin film of lacquer over the wood, making it feel more natural. Solid colours as well as stains and burst are available with this finish as well as gloss, satin or matt finishes. Satin Finishes will be provided in house over stains, gloss finishes shall be outsourced.
Poly finish: This is the thick lacquer that many guitar manufacturers use today and provides the guitar with the most protection from knocks and scratches. Currently I do not have the facilities to provide this finish on site so will be outsourcing to a reputable finisher. Available in solid colours, bursts and clear coating.
Swirls: Swirls are available upon request and will be done by Richard Fay swirls.
