    Hello all I’ve been lurking this site for a long time. Thought I’d say hello. Just finished my first build. I sure appreciated all the great info. Meat & potatoes, but she plays true & I was proud of it.

    Welcome, nice to see ya! Great looking guitar, particularly for a first effort. Hey, just curious, not sure if it's the angle of the photos or the grain of the body, but is it thicker than a normal 1.75" body?

    Thanks all, def appreciate the warm welcome. OldDude2 is right, she’s pine & a bit on the heavy side. Plays great, sounds great.

    I like it a lot, but this one will prob end up for sale soon. This one was about the journey not the destination.

    I already have all the parts for my next tele & strat build on deck.

    I think I like the building as much as the playing.
