    I only have to cut the aluminum nut a bit deeper and swap the old rusty strings for a set of Optima 24 carat gold strings

    Great pictures!

    Guitar looks more yellowish compared to the previous photos.

    Having a train in the back yard always comes in handy :D

    I can't even wrap my head around how difficult getting those parts in must have been...

    Amazing color too!

    Today made a video. The guitar is played by Willem Gerritsen, just like last year. Willem ownes my last years build challenge telecaster, and is still very satisfied with it.

    Well, here's the video.


    And the picture.
