It's almost done, pure vintage 64 fender pickups and electronics are coming

Body from Italian manufacturer franchin guitars, alder and nitro finish

Neck from a Chinese classic vibe strat, rosewood

Hardware from classic vibe and Callahan

Now it's only 2,8 kg I guess when it's finished it would be about 3.1 kg or 7lbs

Do you think it looks good? I am no used to the strat shape headstock in a tele...

It's very good, I think strat neck in tele body is ok but tele neck in strat body = problems
Maybe the neck you got is squarer than most?

Usually there’d be gaps on each side

I actually just saw a “order made” (basically Japanese custom shop) mij “blind faith” tele that had a strat neck with a tele heel to it

Or maybe the body has a rounder pocket?

If it fits together okay I’d rock it!

Looks pretty hot. I like the light wear on this, unlike a lot of relic jobs that go wayyyy overboard. The color is really nice, too.
