    So here is a mockup for my new Telecaster build:
    73E25889-9D85-4DB6-8D26-71FE83E9AC33.jpeg
    This is a Warmoth ash body and maple neck. Neck is a soft v, or “boatneck”, 10” radius. Pickups are Tonerider A2 in the neck and A5 in the bridge. More pics to come when it is together.

    So here it is: 73CD5B83-C18F-4098-ADAB-0B096E1DF8CD.jpeg 6B27845A-30A3-4814-8AED-02606153F256.jpeg

    It is very light compared to the black tele: F9249B39-EE2E-4FAD-96C2-07D8E5C7EE30.jpeg
    but it sounds great. Both bodies are swamp ash. The black is 8.6 lbs. and the white is 6.6 lbs.
