Here is what it is going to look like.
Ok lets fix the body.
Now I decided to carve the arm rest... and I hated it. So I tried something different. It is not my favorite. I would love to hear opinions. But I think I am going to just go back to a plain old flat tele body. Teles don't look right with carves.
Headstock with plate and recessed vintage tuners.
Made a less than funny mistake with these. I forgot that I use a wider tuner spacing than a tele on my headstock. I wasn't thinking and just started drilling. The Klusons are supposed to touch and look like a plate when done. Instead I ended up with a 1/16 between them. Not a functional issue but a visual one. Probably just going to drill this necks tuner holes out and put modern tuners on it. All that work...
And the half bridge.
Neck ferrules. Not a fan of these either. WD has a new neck plate that is for cutaways. I might start using one of them.
Of course I only use steel inserts and stainless steel neck screws when I do do bolt ons.
Back to regular work carving a neck.
That's a pretty cool looking "tele inspired" shape there!
I have decided that telecasters should be flat. And I am doing this body over. Same shape just no carves or silly stuff
Can we see more pics of the tele? Btw, im a fan of the carves
I will take some more tomorrow in the light if I have time.
Straight string ferrule holes are a nice thing.
Getting set to carve the top. I use the round over bit to set the depth of the carve.
Electronics holes drilled. Strap locks recessed.
Trying out a new clamping fixture for the bench.
And the back
Meanwhile a new tele is being cut on the Destructo 2000
This time we avoided disaster.
Yep, it's always scary when a computer is controlling a high speed cutter!
Over at Project Guitar I re-posted some vintage build threads that got lost in a db crash.
