    Olivewood is really wood from an olive tree. Olive ash is real ash but with a wilder color.

    Olivewood feels like rosewood when fretting. I use now Jescar fret wire and that's by far the best I've used. Ever. Makes fretting a breeze and leveling afterwards is a dream. Only once in a while, I would prefer something else, for example when the fret slot is like the Grand Canyon. But with fresh slots... jescar.

    Is olivewood the tree where olives come from, or is it something else?

    I don't know why I've never considered olivewood for any of my builds. I've always loved the color and grain pattern. I am now officially inspired.

    These pickups are absolutely bonkers. The neck is a paf clone, sounds great. Fat yet a slight midscoop so solos jump out a bit more.

    I opted to not go with a superdistortion, only the look, because I dont like that pickup. Too fizzy and fat. This pickup is just as hot, but a bit more fluid for leads. It's in essence, a blend between the jb and superdistortion.

    Beautiful guitar. How are those pickups? I personally would have gone for the Super Distortion in the bridge, however I don't know anything about those?

    Yeah. If you've never tried that, you don't appreciate just how much work it really is to make it right. Nice job!
