    I'm looking forward to seeing this come together, Jared. Looks like a well-planned build.

    It was long journey but it is nice to start seeing things come together . The parts should be in between Thursday to Tuesday if things go as smoothly as last time I bought something from the fella I got my parts from

    I'm not so much into Teles--but I do kind of like Thinlines--and the walnut is a great choice...
    I love the pickguard...

    I've been looking at those Ratio tuners. They're quite interesting.
