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.

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