Heres the body just about ready for routing-

Im not gonna put a tele bridge or pickguard on it so its just gonna be a fixed strat bridge with a humbucker in the bridge (with coil tap) and a single coil in the neck.

Wow that is an amazing top! Spalted and flamed? What an amazing find. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

How will you finish it?

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

It's a pity I can't see the pics, spalted maple usually looks fabulous.
EDIT: I can see the second one now, it looks great, especially with the stripe down the middle. Very sexy

I'm unsure about the neck. Dont know what to go for.

What kind of fingerboard is planned?

Nothing at all neck/fingerboard wise, Im a little stuck for ideas to be honest. I dont really get fender type guitars so im a little indifferent to it to be honest. I want to keep it fender like so I think it'll have to be a maple neck, might just do a rosewood board or even a kingwood one simular to the Rosewood guitar.

Maple on maple is the only option for tele. period. Well, rosewood too, but that's it, methinks.
