Finished ............. I've mated the body to a Fender MIM Telecaster neck. No originality or imagination was used in constructing this guitar. Someone in the TDPRI forum had posted a picture of a Telecaster shaped guitar with Rickenbacker 360 appointments a couple of years ago. I saved that picture and built this one. I have a 360 12-string which helped with some of the details. In looking at the picture referenced above I didn't notice the carved top found on 360 Rickenbackers until I had already routed a cavity in that location. This didn't allow enough enough wood thickness to do the carved top ........... and besides, I haven't figured out how to do that yet.
