    BTW, Have you had a chance to run it through it's paces? If it plays as good as it looks you are going to be one happy camper!

    Real nice guitar(s).

    I love them with a bridge cover. My dream Tele would have one...

    I remember that I one had a '67 guitar (kind of Strat copy) with a cover... that I took off not long after I got the guitar. These days, I like the vintage look...

    I must be getting old :cry:

    Nice build.

    Thanks guys! I love the look of a bridge cover, but I always take it off when I play. Same with the tremolo bar.

    Sorry for my ignorance, but...who is that? Maybe I'm just not recognizing him?

    What did you use to dye the neck & how did you do it? Did you dye the bare wood?

    I used ReRanch amber alcohol based dye powder mixed with denatured alcohol and lacquer thinner, and tested it on some scrap maple before applying it to the bare wood of the maple neck. The fretboard had to be sanded though to remove some sort of sealer that Allparts is putting on the fretboards. All other areas took the dye just fine. After it dried for a few hours, the clear coating began. I just wiped it on with an old rag, and of course wore latex gloves. :D

    Hi, and sure!
    Hardware is Fender, pickups are '52 reissues that have been hand rewound.

    And thank you. I don't think I could've ended up with a nicer piece of Ash.
