    Turns out it can’t touch the nut becuse PG material, it’s too fat for the strings to be happy.

    Sometimes ya just gotta know when to say when... when is good enough good enough? Man, that body looks fantastic. So much great work put into this.

    I feel ya, when 90% of a build looks fantastic, you hate to let some things go that bother you. But I have found that when the guitar is put together, and you can see the Big Picture... the little things that drive us nuts sometimes don't seem as bad.

    Great Build, Great Build Thread too ...

    Don’t like the gold and I’m going chrome instead.

    Tuners are on but the low e lock is giving me a fit so I ground off .035 or so and it is a little better, IDK

    But on to the goods

    After taking the neck off again, again for fret filing - polishing my fret work is acceptable (pita)

    I’ve been digging the Symore Duncan mini humbucking firebird pick up.

    Every one loves the subtle plum burst and I’m looking for different screws for the pick guard and cover plate. Mini black

The first 3 weeks strung up I just didn’t like how it sounded but now it’s really come around and I’m liking it a lot

    It still has that clunky 17 fret neck joint but it’s not that bad

    This Telebird is a favorite by far now.
    I’m even keeping that ugly truss rod cover.
