    Nothing like a coat of primer to show up all your flaws.

    This is an amazing and unique build.

    The fact that you are making some of your own hardware is really cool and shows how much skill you have as a machinist, well along with the cool tools!!

    Can't wait to see what you do with the mahogany body...

    Yes, this hobby is very addicting!

    Well summer and work have taken up most of my time lately but I finally got a chance to get back at the punk Tele. I shot some paint on tonight and if all goes well tomorrow I may start final assembly.

    Having waited this long, you might consider letting that paint sit a touch longer before you assemble? Unless it's one of those new Gucci-modern-dries-rock-hard-overnight finishes. :)

    Looking forward to seeing that fancy bridge in action.

    I'm not gonna lie, in keeping with the spirit of this build I used some left over industrial that was kicking around the shop. It's either going to be awesome or really ugly, and I'm cool with than. Worst case Ontario I will just cover up the flaws with some Rancid stickers.

    Well that would be the counterpoint to my input. Only question is, which of us is the angle and which is the devil on your shoulder...LOL

    Cheers,

    Nothing worse than when your strap pops off, no worries here.

    Gotoh's keep your guitar in tune. Grovers keep your guitar in tune. Both are easy to use IMO. It comes down to which looks you prefer.

    I nominate this strap lock for "Overkill of the Century" award. Despite the century being quite young it is difficult to envision this being eclipsed.

    got some strings on it now, needs intonation adjusted and some fine tuning but at least it goes twang. Tomorrow night I will solder up the controls and try to make some real noise. Not gonna lie, I am getting pretty pumped.

    Nothing screams out Canadian quite like a Robertson screw.

    You've overrated your rigging. :eek:

    The nylon sling and shackle are definitely Les Paul safe.:twisted:

    I dunno. I think you might need strap-locks.
