Just finished this one up over the weekend. My first tele build, so some learning curve on the best order of operations, neck and truss rod access, etc. I'm looking forward to more of these.

Oregon myrtlewood top, alder body, maple neck, ebony fb, Bootstrap pickups (pretzle in neck, palo alto bridge), RoyalLac finsish. I rear loaded the neck pickup. I've never been a fan of the fender headstocks, so I went with a snakehead. Same with not liking f-holes, except on orchestral instruments, so a dolphin-style hole. I also changed it to a 24.75 in scale. Overall I'm very pleased and ready to jump into another one!
