    I put this on hold until I finished another project, but got back to it as soon as the other one was done. So here it is.

    Alder Body was built from the Terry Downs blueprint and the maple neck from the PDF Tele neck file that I found here on TDPRI. Rosewood fretboard with Dan Erlewine 152 fret wire. Pickups are SD neck and Fender MIM bridge. Bridge is a Fishman piezo. Tuners are Gotoh ovals. Pots are CTS, wired like a std Tele. I mixed that eye catching yellow with Colortone Yellow and White added to a dark amber tinted Mohawk Nitro. Pickguard was a lucky find on ebay. I say lucky because I didn't want to go the old black or white route. I think it really compliments the yellow.

    Still have to do the mandatory tweaks, but I wanted get it strung up.
