It looks very professional man, you should be proud.
I see you are using a dremmel tool with an attachment, is that what you used for all the routing?

Thank you very much! I use the dremel for all the little stuff like the butterflys and inlay work but I use my big router for hollowing out cavities and chambers

There's a signature model Tele with that setup, and the Ron Wood ESP Tele signature has it as well. But I probably used the incorrect word. I meant to say, that setup on a Tele has been around for at least 40 years.

EDIT: Okay, I may have been mistaken on the Fender sig model, but there's a "Vintage Hot Rod 52" Tele with a minihumbucker ion the neck, and there's a '75 model.

And if we wanna get nitpicky, there are a few Squier equivalents.

Just sayin

Well there you go. Ok, there are a few models out there, but the fact is that I have not seen or heard of any of these guitars previously. That is why I thought it was interesting. Having said that, I appreciate your educating me on the matter of guitars with a single coil in the bridge and humbucker in the neck position.

Oh okay, I was thinking of buying that dremmel tool. But I think I should get a proper router. Keep up the build!

No prob!

It just clicked in my head though as to why I said they were common in the first place I live in southwest VA/northeast TN, the birthplace of country music. So Teles and all their derivatives are super common in this area, so shortly after getting into guitars, I noticed those models and went "wtf? O.o" myself.

Took some scrap from the top to make a headstock plate


sanded down to thickness
http://s171.beta.photobucket.com/us...ml?sort=3&o=105

maple fret board

slotting

taper cut



I re-did the neck and made it a little bit fancier with curly maple


truss cavity cut


and gluing up the fretboard


The tele electronics setup allows for front access and no need for a rear cavity cover so I'm left with an empty canvas of a mahogany back to work with. I do believe its inlay time...

This morning I finished the Inlay with a total of 58 pieces and 13 hours into it from the time I started drawing till the epoxy was sanded off (not counting epoxy dry time). Its currently at 150 grit. I cant wait to polish it up and really make it shine. The purple heart is brownish right now from being freshly sanded but once the oxygen has time to get to it, it should turn the vibrant purple that the wood is known for.
