nice love the logo
I'd like to do 2 or 3 colors so I'm going to give silk screening a try... some day.
Beautiful as usual. Such nice precision work, too!
looking good my friend. Thanks for your help last week. I couldnt have done it without your help. I'll see ya in a few months around Thanksgiving..
Really nice work Steve! Love the logo on the neck and pocket. Great job!
As my friend Nate says "If you shoot for perfection, your actual results just may be worth the effort".
Happy to help anytime Joe. This is the second time you skipped out before Tele Challenge video production (Joe's "chops" have got chops), if you do it a few more years in a row I'll start taking the hint.
Started on the pickups today. With everything else going on it was open the bags from Stew-Mac and stuff the magnets in the flat work. Tomorrow will be quieter so I'm sure I'll get more done. (famous last words)
Did some spinning today. I am by no means an expert in this arena. More like "Git R done" where the R is for resistance.
Bridge went the same way except for the inclusion of a do over.
Wow Steve this is coming along beautifully!! I can't wait to hear those pups!
I was at the shop this morning for the first time in a week.
Kind of productive. Got the frets leveled and dressed, the controls all soldered up, the headstock sanded out to 1200 grit and the body to 1000 grit. Then it was time for lunch.
No wunch 4 U! U keep woking! Good to see ya back at it man!
You got the schedule right, but I get downright cantankerous if I don't get fed.
Just a beautiful, straight forward tele. Can't go wrong with that. Nice attention to detail.
Yea! Shop time! Three uninterrupted hours and then some visitors and a setup on a strat but I made some good progress.
Finished the nut.
Ahh, Saturday morning and I got my bone polished.
Tuners and nut installed.
Finished sanding out the body, polished it and added some parts.
Some more assembly.
Had to make a pick guard template because I couldn't find mine. Used a BWB guard that I had to make the template from a piece of 1/4" plywood.
So there it is with a single ply white guard.
But it's such a nice piece of mahogany.
I'm torn between the traditional and the really nice piece of wood. What to do?
IMHO go with the pick guard. I like no pg on really figured woods, but on that gorgeous straight grained mahogany the pg dresses it up. Kinda like a tie and jacket versus just a sport shirt. My .02 worth.
Great build, awesome shop, sick skills, sweet guitar!
I like it without also - the chrome trim ring looks great.
