Hi

This is a new project I'm starting.
This will be a semi-hollow tele, with flamed maple veneer on the top, maple neck, rosewood fretboard and some unknown wood I found for the body back.

I quited the es-335 build because I'm sure I don't have enough time until november to finish it and I won't be able to continue after it.

I was looking forward to the 335, but understand the complexities and constraints of time. It can always live on the shelf for a while and come back to life in the future. I'm thinking about doing a semi hollow tele as my next build, so Ill be watching this build with interest.

I personally prefer regular - Reversed headstocks just look very 'out of place' to me most of the time, for lack of a better word.

EDIT -
The post below is exactly what I mean - They suit some guitars, but not all
I deeply regret the 6661 in my username. Siiiigh. Damn you, 14 year old me, you edgy little bastard.

For a Fender headstock I definitely say leave it. I only like reversed Jacksons. And even then I hate to tune it.

I'm going against the grain and advising for a reversed headstock. I've always found them to be more aesthetically pleasing if it's a six-in-line design.

DON'T PANIC! DON'T PANIC!
THEY DON'T LIKE IT UP 'EM!

White with black pickguard. I also like the orange suggestion, with a white pickguard and white binding. Ohh, that would be sexy.

Getting there! You're F-holes look nice by the way.

If you want them to look more 'delicate' you can carve around the edges on the inside.

Well, although I see I don't get much of attention here, I continue updating:
I know what you mean. Maybe if you posted pictures of your lunch every now and then...

Seriously, after watching your strat build I've been lurking on this one. I mean, I don't exactly have ideal tools but what you build with just blows my mind. Keep up the good work.

If you build it, they will come.

So, what do you say, shall I go with arched top like this one I made on a scrap wood or maybe I'll stay with the flat top?

Yeah, go with the carve. It's a lot nicer than the one I just did

That round-over makes it looks so much nearer completion.
