Finished installing roasted (dark) neck on my HWY1 Texas Tele going for that Marty Stuart look
very pretty , it adds something, looks great
I like those small detail changes. It looks really nice.
Classy, looks much nicer.
If you prefer the darker ambered look you can also tint tru oil and coat the pale original neck to darken it up for use on another guitar.
Looks good! How’s it feel?
Nice and smooth. Not sticky at all I think it has an oil finish or something. Feel like my fiddle neck. I polished up the EVO frets so they’re really slick to.
Changes are good, with that said, I wish I had never messed with this one. No energy or time to flip it back, right now. Maple neck has become a real pariah. Sometimes changes work, as in your case, in others, it turns into a failed experiment. Someday the Rosewood will wind up back on the burst body. Maybe I can coax wife into letting me get one of those silver strat bodies from Stratosphere for the maple neck. I may have to move along to a Strat forum cause I keep dumping so much sacrilege onto the pages of TDPRI.
sorry for crummy pictures.
That is one great looking neck. What a classy look. Now that you mention it I can't seem to leave anything as is.

Hmmm some folks use the roasted maple and it looks.............. over done or too much roast I guess. Yours, on the other hand is beautifully understated and classy. Very nice indeed.
Very nice. The one with no dots on the fingerboard is my favorite.
And while I'm doubtful of this, I'll say it just in case: if you decide to sell the original TT neck, keep me in mind.
Love those black guards, Beachbum. I'm not fan of the pearly plastics, which look hokey to the max to me, and take away from the guitar itself by being too glitzy. The Tele, especially, is a simply form that needs no gaudy additions, IMO.
Thank you much.
That looks great, but I have to say the neck is what makes the Highway One Texas my favorite Tele.
