    I do too.....yikes...lots of templates.... I think I would make a dedicated neck tenon cavity template that is wider and more solid so there isn't any flex.

    I think you'll find it is harder than a tele though....

    Looking forward to this. How was the Lollar winding class? Did you draw up your own plans, really well done.

    What an amazing preparative work, it looks like very intricate to me as newbie in guitar conception but very impressive though

    Very nice preparation. Love the gold top, is this going to be vintage specs (besides the chambering)?

    I'm using this as my dedicated neck tenon template, although it may be tough to use on an angle, this one may get revisited.

    And you are correct it's slightly harder than a tele :D.
