and I'm really impressed with that Guitar's Finish! He says in the video it's walnut but in the guitar builder, I'm kinda confused on what to choose
This is what I selected :
MA- Maple neck/ Alder body (standard)
WT - Walnut Top
TF- Tung Oiled satin neck and body.
Do you think I'll get the exact same finish of the body? It's really hard to decide just by looking at the photos of the finish.

It appears to have the standard alder body wings, and a 5-piece neck (likely maple and walnut). I think the body wings are alder because they are light in color (which could be maple, ash or alder), but are a little bit darker than the maple used in the neck, and a little more golden in coloring (but less so than mahogany).
It appears to me that the whole body is finished in the clear satin finish, while the neck seems like it's the tung oil finish. Hard to tell for sure. The clear satin will darken the color of the wood very slightly, and I think I saw the back of the neck looking lighter than the through-neck that is between the body wings...hard to tell on my iPad screen's terrible color.
Rounded body sides
Pointy 4+3 or 3+4 headstock...don't remember if it's the regular orientation or reversed...
Abalone signature fretboard inlays
Likely upgraded the fetboard to the streak-free Ebony
Abalone headstock logo
Matching Claro walnut headstock overlay
Abalone-topped control knobs
Two coil split mini switches
Standard FT7 bridge
Can't tell from the video what the fetboard radius is, or what the fret material or size is.
