    I have plans for three Telecasters of increasing difficulty as I go along.

    1.) The guitar I started building back in the nineties before our shop was broken in to and I lost all the parts I had accumulated. This won't be a classic, but it's what I always wanted back then. I'll buy a neck for this one. Building the body. This will have both a Belly cut and an Arm Cut. Two Firebird Pickups, and a Strat Style Hardtail Bridge.

    2) An early classic style. Maybe a pinecaster. (Not sure since I just bought a bunch of very light clean alder on craigslist. Building the neck and body for this

    3) A modern Thinline. I'm going to try to build everything possible on this one, including winding the pickups (I have an inductor winding tool at work I can use).

    So far I'm here with number 1. I just picked up a Spindle Sander so I could finish the template. The Ash has been joined, trimmed and planed to thickness.
