    Hey all! I am brand new to this forum, I just got a Hipshot E-A-B-E bender for my custom Warmoth Tele and I am still workin out the minor bugs, but I love it! Anyway, I have been researching benders and eventually landed on Youtube. There I was humbled and blown away by quite a few pickers. But the one that just knocked me out was Sol Philcox.

    The live oak is likely going to end up being a jewelry box :eek: - because the stuff is so dang heavy! It has some really wild grain, so I'm going to see if I can keep it reasonably stable when I resaw it. If it holds up without cupping, I will try to make a thinline top with it.

    I'll try to get a post up on the progress on the rest of the wood over the weekend - after some more shop time!

    Nice! I have some really nice quilted maple that I am going to use for my next Tele. I am going to get a Bender kit and customize a few things during the build. Can't wait!
