How's the intonation on that? It looks like you've got the centre and E/A saddles switched.
Nice build btw - almost identical to my next planned assembly.
Lol - sorry should have said - the pics were taken before any set-up etc. The intonation is now spot on after the nut was slotted properly and then the bridge set-up properly.
Just seeing this now. That's a cool '67 Camaro behind it! (Fellow car geek here.)

Very cool! I love it! Nice job.
I don't like the HS much either.
It's better than it was in my
It's the nicest playing neck I
have ever had on an electric
I finished "Heavy Duty" about a month ago, sounds incredible:
Warmoth mahogany body and neck, tru-oil finish
DiMarzio 36th Anniversary PAF neck
Dimarzio Super Distortion bridge
Here's my recently assembled double bound sunburst. I posted on the Home Depot section as well but figured I plunk a couple of photos down on this thread. USACG body and neck, Klein Firebird pickup in the neck position and a Done Mare Hayride bridge pickup. Sounds just like I hoped it would. I'm having fun!
My latest partscaster build.....an Esquire with a refurbished 59 Tele neck that has new rosewood fretboard, clay dots, bone nut, vintage frets, neck repro decal, and nitro-repaired finish, all done by Mark Wybierala/wrnchbnder of New Jersey, with '59 tuner ferrules, new SD-91 Gotoh vintage tuners, and the original '59 neck plate.

Here's my latest. In the end I decided not to mount the armrest.
Here is my latest Partscaster
Pretty elaborate one. Carved in Flames and cool Flag paint job Tony DeLacugo Tele body. This one has arm and tummy contours. Pickups are Don Mare Hayrides. Rutters bridge, knobs and slanted control plate. Dunlop strap locks. Fender SELECT neck with compound 9.5 -14 radius. Fender locking tuners with pearloid buttons.
Always like Buck Owens Flag tele, but wanted a cool version of it.
Hope you like!
What a flame
