still wondering if I should use a Maple neck or make a Mahogany one
A Mahogany Tele is not the norm, so do a not the norm neck. How about walnut neck with wenge board. Or better yet, wenge neck and board. Maybe even all rosewood.
I wonder what a StewMac mahogany burst would look like???
Go with something to accentuate the fact it's mahogany. Maybe a dark burst or translucent finish?
i gave each pickup it's own route to the control cavity, neck pickup straight to it
the middle pickup takes a detour thru the bridge cavity
and the bridge pickup gets it's own hole
got a neck blank out to check the neck pocket, all is good
gave the body a dry block sanding with 220 and brushed on another coat of sanding sealer and hung it up to dry, then off to other things
This looks really fantastic, but weren't you making an Esquire? Just curious
yes, a stealth esquire
Stealth Esquire....Im guessing it'll have two dirty big strat single coils under the Esquire guard.
you are correct sir
So basically you routed the neck and mid pickup deeper? Cool.
I've heard of these b4. I think its the coolest thing ever actually. But what kind of pickups are you going to use such that they will read the strings under all that plastic?
I'd imagine quite a volume drop, no?
Like this John English Esquire. Should be killer Scatter.
That looks fantastic, now how about some black binding on that body?
Scatter makes his own pickups, so I'm sure he's got something crazy planned.
I like this build Scatter Lee. Looks very nice so far.
As an aside, I wonder why some folks like to quote a post with 10 pictures in it just to say "Nice job and keep up the good work." Bandwidth be damned, I guess. Carry on!
ah, found it...
my favorite combo..
This may sound totally crazy and out of left field, but what about an unfinished wenge neck? And an ebony board.
