Looks great! How does it play? How's the neck, quite chunky I'd guess?
It's a good, lightweight guitar. Neck is chucky but not huge. All my other Teles have 9.5" fretboards. One has a 12" radius. This one (7.25") isn't a big deal. I've learned to roll with the differences. During a gig, I don't have time to (get used to) anther guitar. You just gotta pick it up and play.

Tones are what you would expect, but the neck pickup is a little brighter, rounder, I guess "Strattier" than a traditional neck pickup. I believe that's by design. Nitrocellulose takes a little getting used to as it becomes "gummy" as I play. I had a Les Paul like that. I just kept it polished and it was fine.

Thanks all, appreciate the kind words. I restrung it as soon as I got home. Strings were dead. After restringing, it came to life even more than when I first got it home. Looking forward to rehearsing and gigging.
