Roger - This is a gorgeous guitar - clean, warm, powerful design with perfect integration of Bigsby hardware.

I play more lap steel than regular guitar these days, but enjoy both.

Congratulations - superb instrument.

Hi Roger, just joined IAP and noticed your post. It looks a great guitar your making, your very luck in the states to have such a vairiety of wood available for projects; Iím somewhat limited here in England. I am currently in the process of building my own fender Stratocaster and putting together all the materials and hardware before I get going. I am confused with pickups and associated hardware at the moment and choosing the best tune wood for the project. Hope to pick your brains and advice in the future. Looking forward to seeing your finished guitar? By the way I canít play the guitar and I am in my sixties, itís a project I want to do. Regards.

Welcome! With all the options and knowledge available online, it can definitely get confusing, especially for someone who doesn't already have a working understanding of the guitar. With you being in the UK, I'd encourage you to join the Telecaster forum (tdpri.com). In the building subforum (tdpri.com/forums/tele-home-depot.46/), there are loads of guys from that part of the world who can steer you in the direction of good suppliers.

And as for tone wood for the project, the concept of tone wood is a myth. . Don't let anyone tell you that using "x-wood" will give you this or that tone. there are way too many variables, especially in electric guitars.
