After much of thought about a few design ideas and gnashing of teeth I'm going with my first design choice. I'm probably biting off more than i can chew for my second build but here it goes anyways (it's only wood right?
). Being my second build and i expect the progress will be slow i'm in for the Overall category.
The idea is to do a one solid piece mahogany neck & body tele with a thin quilted maple top , flamed maple fretboard and finally a black walnut inlay pick guard (similar to my first build as seen to the right of the wood) . I have not settled on the hardware or binding yet. I may or may not chamber i have to see were the weight is after the cutout.
Here is my proof of start photo
