    I'm tempted to suggest that you "raise the bridge, file down the nut and take the buzz out of the low E" but I won't.

    It looks beautiful! Give 'er a neck to be proud of, and don't cheap out on the control electrics.

    Might need a vintage gold glitter pick guard.

    Sparkles video on Insta

    A very nice fella called Scott, based in Northern Ireland built it. Credit where due though, I got it out of the blue directly from my lovely lady wife as a birthday present. She is a goodie

    I was thinking chrome Firebird :)

    I was originally thinking matched orange sparkles headstock, but now you've got me thinking BLACK SPARKLE headstock :) no dots is interesting too!

    Always go 4-ways :lol:

    I would suggest a 3-ply black guard and a maple neck. Can't get much better than that!

    Snakehead headstock? Secret Agent neck pickup? Cutout under the pickguard for a Skyes-Fairbairn dagger?

    That's a great looking body! I'd go traditional vintage looking telecaster all the way.
