Well I had the body cut and routed a year ago but it got hot and i didn't finish. Sooo yesterday I did all the shaping (tummy, Arm, Fret access contour [front and rear]) . I should have her done in the next week, and should then be starting on another.
progress so far

This looks like it'll be sweet.
I'm really diggin the body shape, sort of like a tele hybrid.
What sort of finish, hardware etc, you goin for?

Did you model that design after something or just come up with it on your own? It looks suspiciously like the Matt Bellamy-caster.

You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.

No, his tele has a bigger shoulder (i dont really know what its called, you know what i mean). This guy's looks like a tele with a tail, and I like it.

how does it look like matts manson?

Anyway, i love this body shape, very nice!
You could be right with the pickup and FR, it looks like you've left a bit of room where the studs for the FR go, which the pickup can hangover a little bit, but i would maybe route the pocket out a bit more towards the neck?
#9
Yeah ,about the pickup, I had a mishap when routing, but it was just that the FR route was too big (it has no affect seeing as I am putting a pickguard on there).


The idea came out of this



and the horn was modeled after the ibanez headstock
