Thanks! I'd love to get into selling guitars, but I'm definitely not where I need to be, skill-wise, to sell. This is only my first electric, and fourth instrument total. Besides, I've built this to be my main playing guitar

This is awesome!

I thought you'd ruined it when you first stained it black, and didn't like the first green...

but now it looks killer! Very shreddy, yeah.

As a guy who is not a fan of fenders at all, I love this build. The brighter green looks way better than the first green you tried. Very nice

Thanks for all the encouraging comments! I'm very happy with the green too

I've spent the last few weeks sanding and sealing trying to get everything as a perfect as I can before I spraying the nitrocellulose lacquer. But I'm new to finishing with lacquer, so I've been having some issues with that. I'm getting it all figured out though. This is at about 8 coats of nitro. It came out pretty good, but I did get a few small runs. Tomorrow I'll level it and spray few more coats, then put it aside for 3 weeks while it cures.

I took some pics in the sun because the green really comes alive in the sunlight:




The back came out really nice, but you can't see it very well here because of the sunlight. I wish I'd taken a better pic, that basswood looks really nice right now. I sealed it with shellac, which gave it a sort of vintage-y tint and brought out the grain a bit, but I'll have to show that off more when I take some better pics:



All-in-all it's coming along very nicely. This 3 week wait will be excruciating, but it'll give me a chance to get caught up on other things.

Yeah, it really pops in the sunlight. And sadly, I can't take a pic that does it justice with my lousy camera.

What do you use for fretting? Do you have an arbor press? Sorry if you've already adressed this question.

I used a hammer to fret, and then a vice and a caul to squeeze the ends down while I applied thin super glue.

Looking great, and no inlays?

Where did you get the black binding from?

This is the reason why I hot-rodded a JEM... there are typical JEMs out there with varying paint jobs, but I wanted to take it a step further, to customize every aspect to my preferences. Teles are very basic looking and something like this takes it to the next level!

Thank you. I agree, teles are very basic, and that's one of the reasons I chose that style to expand upon.

Yeah, i decided against inlays this time around. I'm not fond of dots, and honestly, inlaying into maple isn't easy for someone with my limited experience. The binding is from stewmac, and I highly recommend it. It's ABS plastic, which is great because you can melt it into a goop with some acetone and seamlessly fill any gaps with that. You can't do that with PVC binding.
