Thanks Mike - I have quite a bit of woodworking experience, but everything I know about building guitars I learned right here at TDPRI. James - That is very kind of you. If I could put a finish on like you can, I wouldn't have to take the pictures out of focus! Maybe I should buy a new camera, but there sure are a lot of tools I'd rather have first. I already have plans for a couple new Teles. I'll be sure to post the builds (I imagine I'll need some advise).
