    That looks like a great job! I like the P-90 pup in the neck. The pearloid pick guard looks really good against the black and the binding accentuates the whole thing.

    The best tele I ever owned had a P-90 in the neck. You're going to love that combo. And that is an absolutely beautiful guitar too.

    Love it. It’s a 9.5 radius which feels better/thicker to me than my other maple tele necks which are a 12 radius.

    The P90 is twangier and brighter than I expected.

    Looks awesome. What are the details on the pickups and hardware?

    Purty. I am tempted by a P90 neck pickup, but I don’t really like my tele the way it is. So I suppose I eventually have to get/build another.
