Frank I love that body. I'm like everyone else I would like to see more pictures of the build when you get the chance to work on it again.

I also know how it is when you are doing something for yourself and you get customer work to do. I have several projects that have been started and set aside and Ihave several others that I have parts for that I want to do. It is just hard sometimes finding the time.

I plan on making a violin some time because my step-grandfather built over a hundred of them. I would also like to build a few guitars but I'm not as ambish as you are, I'm thinking cigar box guitars.

I don't play the violin or guitar, it is a woodworking thing.

You said it perfectly, Mike....."Its a woodworking thing"! I don't play guitar, and have no interest in learning, but it's the challenge to research this specific craft and build a functioning electric guitar so I can cross that off my list! I know once I slow down a bit, my idol hands will become restless and I'll pick this project back up!

Nice work . The best forum I have found for electric luthier work is www.tdpri.com .
check out the Tele home depot section . In fact you should post this guitar over there.
