Here is the tele kit I just finished.

Mahogany body with a flamed maple veneer top. Maple neck and fingerboard with a skunk stripe.

I did a rattle can sunburst with nitro that I bought from reranch.com.

I tossed the hardware and replaced it all with better quality stuff (tuners, bridge). I made the pickguard from an old Johnny Cash Live at Folsom Prison vinyl LP.

I'm going to put some Bill Lawrence noiseless pickups in it. I have a 4 way switch and CTS pots.

Well I say it ain't finished until it has some pickups! Looks great. Love the JC record pickguard...
