    The Pre-CBS Carbon had better Tone but, I applaud your Effort.
    That took some Patience I simply do not have.

    Rock-On.

    Once it gets reliced (intentional or accidental), your sleeve and arm will be coated in graphite.

    That is excellent. If he ever starts selling finished bodies I want one :)



    Two part epoxy is going to take some relicing ;)

    Wow, I like it better than the Strat.
    How much does it weigh?
    I also wonder about the strength. Have you tried to break a "test piece"? (Edit: looks like you did.)

    Also, have you thought about making a vacuum clamp/press? Not very complicated to make.

    He did. Sorry for the confusioning, didn't mean to take credit on that. Wish I had the place and the chops, tho...

    ^ No worries.
    Someone else made me think you were the builder, in another thread with a link to this one. But his comments are no longer there. Or I was hallucinating after a fast...

    Really amazing and beautiful works.

    But I guess you have to play between the lines.:)

    I like the uniform look of the Tele as opposed to the multi coloured Strat.

    Absolutely zero string binding, though. Anywhere.

    The builder wrote in the YT comments that it "weighed in at just over 12 pounds" (5,44 kg).

    Epoxi is way too heavy for guitars
