    Or just keep it!
    I've been a pilgrim on this earth, since the day of my birth, I'm a long way from my home.

    I actually sent a photo of my tele inside it's case to my mom and dad asking to pack the areas that has space with tshirt to make it snug, so it wont move. I hope the airline crews wont ruin the guitar. Its my only guitar now and I'd be pissed if something happens to it.

    It's actually really beautiful and I dont know why its not selling in the ph since an influx of custom shops, suhrs and other high end guitars were brought in and snatched up like candies recently.

    I actually dont mind the maple neck. It's a really nice neck with a lovely feel to it. But rosewoods are really nice to the eyes and fingers. The body is a 2pc but nicely matched, front and back, but you'll see where the seam is though but I dont really care since the grains are okay, what I dont like is when grains are not matching front and back. anyway, I cant wait for it to be here.

    Sometimes a mismatch or an obvious seam looks cool

    I actually prefer not to see it, thats why I prefer solid colors so that I dont see the seams or how many woods were used. but if it's a transparent finish, like sunburst, Id like the wood grains to be seamless and perfectly matched. I like the straight grains of alder that runs horizontally along the body. but it's just something I prefer on looks, shallowa as it is.

    My Mustang has a mismatch in part that I like
    Although it isn't real noticeable from the front
    You can see it more in the back
    I prefer to see woodgrain
    But it's a deal killer if you can't

    Finally got my telecaster!



    Feels like home! Im generating interest, so I posted this in our local classifieds and see where it goes. For the meantime, Im looking for a luthier nearby to do a professional set up on it, I may end up not selling it once it's set up nicely.
