Former Challenge Build-360T

Somewhere between Fullerton and Santa Ana...

To be continued.

Well not just continued but finished. Hopefully.

There's no turning back now.

Thank you, sir. The great balls of fire will either be the fireglo finish or some maple firewood.
PS Syd is one of the reasons I first put a tele pickup and bridge one of my guitars.

I mean to tell ya! That was me on Friday- and I think I have parts coming in from 6 different places. It's like Christmas every day when those packages start showing up.

Good luck!

Thank you.

I'm only up to about 4 orders so far but one advantage of having too many unfinished projects is I already had alot of the parts I will be using in that miden I call my shop.

And I can already think of at least on thing I forgot to order from StewMac.

Every build I do, there's always the original order and the forgotten stuff order. One day I'll write a list!

I like the StewMac shot even better than the wood shot.

Thank you and good luck to you. Might need to have a side challenge- Jim the Plumber versus Jerry the Electrician. (note to moderators-I'm kidding about the side challenge.)
