    Is the body finished? Because it looks crazy good as is! What kit is this? I’m already interested!

    Is that black binding, or am I looking at the routing for binding that has to be installed?

    Damn a headstock cut to fender specs, a body with finish and already half assembled..
    Nice Wife you have there.. (she's going to let you take credit for the build after she did the hard part).. :D

    Nice looking kit.. Wish my wife would do that for me. I'm lucky to get clean socks.

    Absolutely!!! :)

    I will! Will do a build thread when she's done, not a good time of year here!

    It has sanding sealer on it, that'll be the longest process ;)

    It is black binding, but will be coming off, gonna do a forearm and belly cut, and round over the edge.

    It's close to Fender, but a bit different, I have templates, and it's off a little. Ok with me!
    Yeah, she's an awesome lady! She fiddles with bass, and knows I love guitars. She's into cars and firearms as well, so we got a good thing going!!!

    Well, I do the light laundry, so I always have clean socks :D

    It'll be fun! I really believe I get just as much, if not more enjoyment out of building and fixing them, as I do playing! I like to jam here and there, but the work aspect of it is so much more gratifying :)

    Tons of fun! Did a Les Paul style kit last spring, and learned a bunch! This tele will be a keeper, many reasons, but first and foremost because who it's from!
