Well I carved the top a little bit on the sides, and carved out the waist. Just gotta wait for my bridge, and cover plate templates to start routing out the humbucker cavities, neck pocket, and the control cavity. About next week, then the neck......

I Like the fat Tele look of it, plus that finish is going to be sweet.
