    Ferrules came in today, was finally able to get her strung. Haven't even screwed in the PG yet, since I may still need to adjust neck pickup height (mounted to body) or Truss Rod (heel adjust) ... but I'm gonna plug her in as soon as I get these strings all stretched and ready. :D

    I love it!! Looks perfect really. I am doing a telecaster partscaster myself. Matte finish is still curing.
    I'm really digging to bottom!

    yeah - you have no idea how close I was to getting a Fiesta Red MJT body for this one!! Glad I grabbed the Seafoam though, I'm really digging the variations on the color from the aging :D
