Completed the project... Fender Tele Rosewood neck, 50's Vintera PU's, Bigsby. Had black Bigsby on it, thinking it would balance the black pickguard and bridge pickup, but thought it looked too gimmicky. Kept the black knobs for the time being. Plays/sounds awesome.

My favorite guitar in a while. Great design... thanks Fender!

That is a nice ax. I prefer this body style for all around comfort and play ability.

Yes, that does make sense. The reason I asked is because I recently tried an offset bass (Squier Jaguar) and it had terrible neck dive, but I guess it had a heavier headstock.
