I am planning on using my CNC router. ......Because of that decision, I get placed in the expert class. I'm no expert in CAD nor CNCing...just so you know that up front...just a self taught experienced guy The plan is a copy of a telecaster copy influenced by the Jedson/Teisco brand of old Japanese import guitars that many of us older folks cut our teeth on...( fingers too). Something similar to this: http://www.google.com/search?q=jeds...ele_Style_Type_2_Electric_Guitar.aspx;600;944 My version will incorporate some different details from the bass version. Hardware is ordered and depending on what shows up determines where things will head first. You may ask why would somebody waste their time on a copy of a tele..... and I'd say why not ?......Different strokes.....That's the basic idea. Hopefully the temps will cooperate over the next couple of months otherwise I'm in trouble. Thanks for watching. Should be interesting anyways..... And .....good Luck to all challengers in all the categories!
