I'm here at the moment. The hardest part is finished.
Your next Project should be making a Bridge Base Plate to hide Your Mod of Cavity! Hope it sounds good.I'm going to install a Strat style neck in the Pig later on today, simply because It fit rather nicely in the neck pocket. A no brainer.
If anyone noticed, There is some spacing around the Bridge and pickup cavity where I dremeled out to make it fit.
Because I'm leaving it a relic, it will work out rather nicely I'm sure...

The cracks really come with the Tele territory. If you look up "Butt Crack" on TDPRI, there are 20 pages of links to hundreds of threads. Many or most of them on genuine Fender models. So no reason to not just run with them on a Partscaster. If you really get tired of seeing them, you could find a modern bridge with the 6 block saddles with a bigger footprint and go with that. Usually more comfortable for the right hand. And get easier intonation to boot.
What you have there is known as a "triple butt crack" in Tele-land!
Keep up the good work, I love this project! Good looking guitar, too!
I guess I could cover the triple ass crack with an ashtray. I'm thinking now.
