Yeah, really nice one!
Well done. Very nice.
Really nice job. The relicing is very unerstated and believable. Good work.
Now that's a beauty! I'd have one of those please, but make it a double bound...
Now one question... why are the string ends sticking out?
That's the locking tuners. There are no "winds" to slip, so tuning is more stable. You have to have a tiny bit of string sticking out (the ends are about 1/16" - 1/8+ at most) to make sure that there is plenty for the lock to grip on.
Thanks everyone. Today I'm gonna tweak it a bit more, now that the neck is settling in from having tension on it.
Looks good, but the best relics have equal wear on body and neck. I understand not wanting to change the playability of the neck, but I personally love the feel of a broken in neck.
Actually, I did it on purpose. I SPECIFICALLY didn't wear the neck, but instead sprayed super light coats of nitro so it will wear "quickly and naturally". A couple months play and the neck will be "well worn and completely broken in", and it will look more natural as well.
PS - not "all" real vintage guitars "wear equally".There are a LOT of vintage guitars with significant body wear and "light" neck wear. The more you look at "real" vintage guitars, the more you realize that there are "no rules" with regards to aging a relic.
Great looking Tele! The relicing really looks authentic.
lovely job, did you cut the nut your self or was it precut and slotted.
did you get the nut from allparts with the neck ... if not where did you get the nut and how well did it fit into the tmo v.
I am just about to order a tmo v from allparts and wanted to get a preslotted nut for pre-finish set up.
any chance of some more detailed pics and close ups of the v profile.
again - a lovely job
