    Why do you do it?

    First Tele, first real build, need a little advice

    Stewmac offers great fingerboards that are affordable. They are radius'd and slotted. I def think you should build your own neck, the benefits are totally awesome. Any size and profile ya want! Really excited to see your progress!!!

    NGD! (NPCD?) And a question about stains, finishes.

    Im definitely for the shellac. It dries beautifully and quick. My personal favorite for feel and visual. Here's a link to a tele I made and finished with shellac. You be the judge:)
