    Beautiful! Is that a one piece body or just a really good two piece grain match?

    Not trying to be a bunghole but do you really like squier necks that much? If you do that’s fair, to each his own
    I think it suits the telemaster

    Just curious if you’re gonna put out so much into the bodies/electronics/hardware why not got the full Monty on the neck?

    Edit: after thinking about it I am a bunghole it’s pretty much just a name, if it’s a good neck it’s a good neck

    Yes indeed ie that is one sweet ride.
    Very well done. A nice neck is a pleasure no matter what the name on the top of it is. I have a really nice Squire neck and it keeps the cork sniffers away.
    The pickup combo is interesting and should give you some great tone.
    One sweet ride for sure.

    it’s all good - and a fair question — I have used Fender necks on builds as well, my favorite build I’ve done is a road worn 50s neck with an MJT body

    with that being said, I really have liked every classic vibe or vintage modified neck I have ever touched - and they are readily available (with tuners) for 1/2 what MIM necks go for
