    One of my fav DIY here over all time frankly...

    Does the clear have good UV protection in the formula, my brain just went there...

    Looking real good! Edges look pretty sharp...is that going to be an issue at all for playing?

    Nah I think it's just the angle of the pics. Edges have a normal round over on them

    Thank you kindly. It should do, it's automotive lacquer so I would imagine so.

    Almost finished. Need to finish the wiring tomorrow and then string it up and make the final tweaks. So happy with how it's turned out

    Seems to be missing something... like maybe a... a.... burst? LOL!!!
    I like it just fine. I even like the neck pup treatment.

    You put it together in record time, hope nothing sticks, and nice touch on the matching headstock. Win!

    I think that is what I like best about it. When I got to about the dozen mark I started trying to make less copy Teles and more non copies. Don't get me wrong, like the Fender ones with the fades just fine, but I ain't Fender. Not sure I will actually make any more tele shapes going forward.

    Well maybe a few...

    Looks fantastic robt. Great job all round, and I like it without the burst. The hardware works in brilliantly, and matching hs is perfect.

    Thanks guys. Its all wired and strung up now. I'll let it settle under tension a few days before doing final setup. Plays beautifully already though. [​IMG]
