I used the exact same body without binding for my aluminium Telecaster project a years ago. The surf green colour is true to the photo. Hard to tell now because it's covered in metal, but the quality ...

Awesome! Sounds ...

Just my theory as to why people are so afraid of gold hardware. And not to assume you don't want it to be over-the-top, because there's a way to do that as well, but something tells me that you (or no ...

My two cents, if I may... I hope none of this sounds obnoxious, but I've put a lot of thought into how to use gold hardware and considered it for past projects, so far I've only used polished brass wh ...

I love it. Engine turn the top, like Lindy's plane or old racing dash boards. Or engine turn the Pick guard area. Who's your avatar? She's lovely.

Thanks.

The lady is Suzy Parker.

The body shape was lifted from a Saturn 63.

Love the shape myself. I think I would like to see a touch less metal on top though. I like that there is a lot of it, but perhaps some curves and more a ...

Thanks everyone!

I didn't take any photos under the pickguard before I put it together, sorry. Honestly, it's not pretty so I doubt anyone will ever see it.

It weighs 9.5 pounds.

Lovely work as always.

INB4 someone says 'OUTPUT'

Paint curing in general is very tricky to gauge. There is no universal answer for this. It is totally dependant on how the paint was applied (thin or thick coats?), the temperature; and most important ...
