    Thanks HK! And good eye on the cross breed, It's actually an offset body with tele appointments. One of several projects I need to wrap up.

    Everytime I see a Tele switch plate I think to myself that's in there backwards..
    I'd rather have the volume knob closest to the neck & the switch farthest away, @$$backwards of how fender made them..

    That body there is Crazy!! Kinda like a Jaguar/Tele.. Very Cool!!
    You must be a Fender Man.. I'm a Gibson man..

    Today before the downpour the church down the way threw out two seven foot mahogany 4X4s which I scarfed right up..
    The church was built in 1873 & is being renovated some, The two neck blanks I scored are painted white with lead based paint & I think that's why they were removed..
    I bet I can get 4-8 necks out of these..
    The score of the day..
    I'm also repairing Great Granpaw Gatterer's one man saw as one of the boards cracked nearly in two because it was left tensioned for 50+ years in the heat of the wood shed
    I'll get some pics in another post.. Amazing what some Titebond & some clamps can do..

    Leave slack in the wires in case you chose to put it back "Fender Style"
    You might have muscle memory of where it should be..

    Do you have one of these tools? Tele_Jack_Installation_Tool

    I have always thought I'd use one of these on a build, I saw your parts pile..

    Ill be sure to make sure theres extra wire, the convenience of being able to swap it around freely would be nice.

    Also, no I don't have a stewmac tele jack installer are they worth getting?

    I saw a guy using one once @ a local fender warranty repair shop & wondered..
    I have never worked on a tele or had the need for one so I couldn't tell you..
    For what that tool costs if needed I would try an build myself one first..

    Those two are SWEET!!
    I could see making a fretless 32" scale bass fretboard with one of those IF it were long enough.. Very Unique & Purdy!!

    They're 24" long, so that'll get you 23 usable frets at 32". These are destined for a pair of seven strings- one standard, one multiscale.
