    I slotted and radius'd the board:

    This fretboard will be bound so I have to be sure all the sots are deep enough:
    [​IMG]
    Binding is on, sorry for the blurry pics

    Maybe my lens is a bit dusty:D
    Cleaned and lightly sanded the back of the fingerboard and the neck so the gluejoint is hardly visible.:

    OMG here is a job :

    Using an inner bicycle tyre is the way to go with an already bound fingerboard. It will be aligned automatically and gives enough pressure for a tight joint.

    Great work so far! I'm really enjoying this build!

    Really nice job on the tearout repair by the way.

    I've had a special place in my heart for Mosrites ever since I learned a lot about the guitar from playing along with this record:

    [​IMG]

    When I was in high school, I found a Mosrite 6-12 doubleneck in a pawn shop in south Oklahoma City, but my dad balked at the $300 price tag.

    I recently saw one on eBay for $3,000. :crying:

    The one I missed out on looked just like this one:

    Lovely guitar, dude! Yes, kinda MC5-ish...Being a good lefty me too, you make me think of Nicke Royale from The Hellacopters. What a magnificent kind of high-energy R'n'R!

    The grain is showing when you look real close, just like a blonde tele.

    Beautiful work. Is that is nitro or other lacquer?

    Did you rout the binding channel before you carved the top?
    Of course you did. I see it now. Very nicely and expertly done. Any particular tips you can point out?

    Also. Where did you find those Mosrite style pickups and frames?
