    No mate, I'm not that good...not yet. I taped the edging with auto pin-striping tape, painted it white to match the body binding and lightly sanded back before Tru-Oiling the headstock. Alot of the design was made on the run to cover small problems or highlight the best parts as the build developed. It was the first time I had used dye, veneer and Tru-Oil, so I was never too sure how it would turn out, hence the mods. Thanks for the kind comments.

    Thanks everyone. I got to open for Marky, CJ, and Richie. And stayed in Arturo's loft. I am a huge Hallmark Guitars enthusiast too!

    Thanks Andrew. Read the post on your build. Tru Oil all the way! So easy to use and the finish and feel is excellent. Good luck with the rest of the build.

    I wasn't going to enter the comp until I got new knobs (the plastic ones weren't doing it for me, and I only had chrome) but it's done. And hey, I had a great time with the folks in this forum. Im just happy I've been welcomed into such a creative group.

I finished it in Tru-Oil (love the stuff!) and Dingo Neck Finish. I was unsure about how much to sand the veneer so maybe a bit more next time. Anyway, it was great fun, very satisfying and I got a new guitar to play! Thanks to Adam for all the info and help with the neck. Hope you all like it.
    The headstock is awesome! lovely guitar - the finish is yummy. never been a fan of tele's but this one is a treat.
