1/2 size tele, my first body

I didn't have enough wood for a full size body so I found scraps, and so my first ever body, is 1/2 the size of a normal tele. Anyone have any ideas? I'm thinking maybe a 3 string slide guitar, the neck pocket looks like an inch and a quarter, maybe a little more.

This isn't done yet, it needs to be planed down quite a bit and the edges need to be routed still.

That's just like, your opinion man...

I have plans for a scaled down neck, 18" scale if you need them. PM me if you are interested.
