    You don't have a body?
    You're a disembodied spirit of some sort?
    I've been a pilgrim on this earth, since the day of my birth, I'm a long way from my home.

    KC - is that a Brady I see?
    I bought a relic'd guitar because I liked the way it sounded. Then I refinished it because I didn't like the way it looked.

    so it arrived today,

    - and I really wish I could recognize the difference between a good neck, and a crappy one.

    - But thanx to some comments from the members here, it inspired Me to look into different type of frets,
    and I have gathered that lower and fatter frets suit my chord strumming non-lead - type of playing.

    and that refretting and actually finishing the fretboard may yield a pretty decent neck.
    I'll see if these frets can be leveled/polished first, and maybe I can chase the fretboard to a more finished feel.

    It is not warped, obviously cnc'd, I've decided I am going to make a Telemaster out of it,
    with a bigsby I've had laying about for several years.

    Thanx again for the inf. and insp. folx.

    a layout like this,

    but on a body like this,

    (on ebay for 95 bucks)
    If I can get a few scraps from the seller, I may try to blend several wudtone transparent stains to get close to the abalone colors.

    Then again, as I am a decent artist,

    I may do some sort of complimentary theme and clearcoat over that.

    That offset body looks right at home with a Tele headstock shape.
