Heres a rough mock up of a through neck tele type guitar Im about to start-

Spec-
Maple/Walnut/Maple/Walnut/Maple through neck,
Rippled walnut wings,
Ebony or rosewood fingerboard,
Single inlay at 12th fret,
My 3 a side headstock design,
2 Bare Knuckle pickups,
TOM & ferrules - string through body.



Heres a VERY rough mock, not with the actual woods or pickups-

I'm liking the shape, maybe make the lower horn a tad thicker?

I reckon you should do a guitar with a floyd, you always do string through!
Good to see you're doing BKP's though, You can only have so many EMG guitars
Also are you going to do a clear coat?
maybe do a black burst to a natural finish in the center, those look nice.

Looking Forward to seeing this

Finish is undecided yet but I wont do anything other than clear finishes. I'd preffer to do an oil and wax but it may end up a clear laquer.

Its pretty much the first one I've done with an original body shape.
#7
So you won't do black burst to an oil finish in the middle?
Sort of like a tobacco burst, but less intense.
I reckon that'd look amazing.
But your guitar!

What about the alternative bridge idea?

Why no trem lol?
Are you going to give this a carved top?
I haven't seen many tele type guitars with one on!

can you please make the template for this?? it looks very mattocaster ish....please??
#12
Yeah, the guy who its for sent me a pic of the mattocaster and said he wanted a simular cut away at the bottom but a standart tele body.
I had a play about and bastardized a Les paul lower horn with a tele body then stretched the top horn and the bottom left corner of the pic as you see it and he was happy with it.

Tell your avatar to stop screaming at me...

And i think it'll look sweet, are you gonna do a standard Tele-style bridge? or a T-O-M?
