    Kinda unplanned but that one is coming to my house. Going with a 7.25” radius neck with stainless 6230. I. Thinking Bocote or wenge neck.

    The redwood top Tele is getting Mojotone “hotrod” Tele pickups. A three saddle vintage style bridge. Looks like roasted flame maple for the neck and finger board 7.25” radius and the vintage style and size frets in SS. it’ll take a month or two to afford the neck but this body deserves it.

    Wow, never saw redwood figured like that and I've milled an awful lot of redwood!

    Nice looking body, is it chambered?
    Under 4lbs?

    Wow. That Redwood on Mahogany is stunning! Can't wait to see this come together.

    Incidentally I scored some mahogany a few weeks back and been wondering what to do with it. Problem solved a few days ago when I found some beautiful quilted mahogany veneer to use on it. Will post a pic later.

    Frijole is lots cheaper to relieve.......much cheaper......but I’m retired and this keeps me busy and only smells bad when I’m spraying finish.

    So awesome. I have a Firebird body I just cut out of black limba plus another piece big enough for two neck blanks. I wish I knew how they finished it like that. Hope you can score it, it's a thing of beauty.

    What do you think of a Bubinga finger board on a roasted flame maple neck.....bloodwood maybe?
