    Looks great! If that's your first attempt, it will be hard to top.

    Looks great! Rest assured, you're the only one who'll ever be able to find the flaws.

    Great answer. There's room for relics and for super shiny special finishes like the one you've produced here. I've been poised about to apply a wipe-on whitewash finish and now I've stopped dead in my tracks.... maybe it deserves better!!! Excellent work!

    Thank you, everyone for the kind words and kudos. I don't want anyone to think I hated the work, the process, or the finished product. I'm an proud of it, I enjoyed it, and I do feel a sense of satisfaction of the work done. I wish I had the time, money, and opportunity to commit to more builds and developing better skills and processes (that's my studio art background), but I happy with this one for now (and there are plenty of visible mistakes).

    Next, I need to sneak in a drill press to finish this build...pretty sure the missus will notice that one.

    That looks fantastic. White blonde is probably my favorite finish for a tele. Well done.

    Might’ve been a PITA, but it sure is beautiful! Nice work.
