Roasted maple neck came in. Even though you don't need to finish these, I am still going to in order to help seal it up and such. :) Makes it darker also. :)

Going to use a different mjt body for this and do a RATM inspired black tele build with the body above. :) On a serious tele kick right now.

It is white over cherry burst. I should be able to snag some pictures after work. It should turn out killer.

Who’s the guy that beard’s wearing in the pic?!? Haha
Love the Rev.

That’s really cool, like so many if your builds I’ve seen.

Carry on!!

All done! Sadly I cut the tip of my left index finger while wiring and had to bandaid it up so I am not able to really play it right, but so far from what I can tell, it is awesome! The channel rout shows a little at the pickguard, but it isn't a huge deal. I am still really happy. I flipped the control plate. Volume is top, then tone, then switch. :)
