The neck is flame maple with rosewood fretboard, and inlaid with my custom logo (black mother of pearl in ebony). The finish is Tru-oil over blonde shellac.

    Really nice build there.. There is beauty in simplicity..

    What are your impressions of the Schaller 3d-6 bridge?

    I've found it to be fantastic, its really well made and offers a wide range of adjustment (it also comes with a matching shim to raise the bridge if needed to achieve the correct string height for your neck). The added benefit of the flexibility with string spacing makes it a winner for me and I would definitely use one again.

    Excellent, I was wondering if it was really engineered well, sounds like it actually is .. And I thought the adjustable string spacing was a big plus as well.. That is one piece of gear that will be on my short list for my next project..
    You really did a very nice job on your build.. Understated elegance.. It really does make a striking visual impression..

    That is an absolute belter! To see and buy that in a shop, would be an absolute miracle find.Can't imagine what price you'd pay for it, though! To say you built it yourself, that's a source of great pride and achievement. Love your taste - I'm a great admirer of black on blonde. That quilted maple is luscious. An outstanding beautiful boutique Tele. Long may you play it.

    Yeah, it's ok I guess.

    I'm not jealous at all.
