Also,
I'm building another 25.5" scale Mustang.

It looks really good. I like the lengthwise laminations. It's a nice touch.

What sort of trem is that? Non-Fender but with locking button?

Test Fitting parts.
I might have made the neck pocket not deep enough. Everything else is fine.

That's looking good. What finish will it get?

Thankyou.
I have no idea. It's for a dude in the US. I haven't asked him about it yet.

It'll be fun to see what he chooses.

The Alder is pretty nice. Perfect grain with no knots. A transparent finish would look cool, even though it's not usually my preference. Vintage white always looks great with black pickguards IMO.

I think butterscotch blonde would work nicely on it. Also Mary Kay white

I'm reworking a Mustang I made a few years ago. I Wasn't quite happy with it. I have cut a new pickguard for it, moving the bridge pickup closer to the bridge.

That is really nice. I don't know if I said it before, but that little angle behind the bridge humbucker, just MAKES the look. So classy.
