    I bought an unfinished tele body from guitar fetish over a a year ago and never did anything with it. I finally got some time and got to work.

    Looks good man! I'm using minwax ebony stain and dark tung oil on a scrap pine build, I'm really digging the look.

    Here she is! My daughter's plum crazy ASAT in the background. When she gets home I will have her play it, I am a one string wonder.

    If you noticed the switch from modern to vintage bridge, I didn't realize that the critical length would change between them.

    Oh well, now I got a start on a modern.
