    Hello, i have been lurking this forum for a long time. First, I want to thank you all for all the knowledge you share here and for all the help I received to build my first project Tele. This forum is pure gold!

    Mistakes were made, but I'm very satisfied with my first guitar shaped object (sorry for the background mess)

    Thanks!

    Hola! That guitar looks great. I love natural wood finishes. I hope it sounds as good as it looks. Play the heck out of it. What’s the guitar ok the stand next to it?

    Greetings!

    That looks remarkably good for a first build. Every one to follow up with will just be better than the one before.

    Nice work!

    Thanks!
    It is a Strat copy that I peeled off to experiment with Tru-Oil. It actually ended up looking good enough and encouraged me to use Tru-Oil for the Tele project.

    I lost track of how many exactly, something between 10 and 15. I just stopped when it looked fine to me.
