    I'll bet it sounds awesome. How come you didn't use a 4-way switch?

    Nice!

    I have a pine tele body brand new in the box from tone bomb. Probably won't get to it until Fall. Using a set of bootstrap pretzels in it with a 4 way switch. I have a cheap tele neck from GFS that has an issue with the nut slot, so may save that for another project. Need a neck without breaking the bank.

    Your tele looks great.
    The one on the left and the one on the right are pine tone bomb bodies (first pic). I put these together in the last year.

    Very nice, @Rob DiStefano!

    Reminds me of my favorite tele. Here's some pics of its many iterations:

    Nice! I bet that thing sings! That's a heck of a knot in it though! Any fear that it could fall out at some point?

    :cry::cry::cry:
    Yeah that was a mess up. Advice, if you're going to spray nitro on a guitar, don't leave it in your garage over night if the temp. is going to drop below freezing...I learned the hard way. Imagine my surprise the next morning when the finish was cracked to the EXTREME! I just went with it...I'm not in love with it but it does play nice. I put some TEX MEX pickups in it. Perhaps I'll name it Dingo
