Top rough cut and glued...




I hate routing edges from the top and I've slipped in the past, so I made a ghetto router table with some MDF...






Top cut flush and ready for profile sanding...

I expected this to be "Build a Telecaster"! A Kahler might be a pain... I was just thinking Tune-O-Matic and string through for this.

That top will also be awesome in TransBlack or Amber.

Amber would look stunning! It's a toss-up between amber and wine red at the moment...


or flamingo pink...


The neck wood has arrived, but I've been too busy to get started with it. Fun times ahead this weekend!

Reminds me of the ESP Horizon III I had. Beautiful flame, very even on this guitar, it will be a fine piece by the time you are done with it!

Amber is a yes over here. Maybe bright? Almost yellow?
