    Some time late last year, I finished up a tele build. (This one: http://www.tdpri.com/threads/j-caster-father-son-parts-build.936849/)

    Once my dad got his hands on it, he immediately asked me to build him one just like it. So i started this guy back sometime in April and just got it fully assembled a couple days ago. Still needs some finishing touches, but here's the goods...

    Yummy ash body from taurowoodworks on ebay. Rubbed down here with spirits to show the grain
