    Ouch! Glad it went together again. I am guessing that if Titebond will work for a neck, epoxy should be fine at the trem

    I was worried about this too for my paulownia bass project, so I did some testing. I have a bunch of 9mm paulownia boards lying around that I screwed together to make the width of a paulownia body. I...

    I imagine it will need something to harden and protect the neck. Hard as maple is, it is not as hard as rosewood or ebony. I have never used CA or epoxy, but I understand that CA at least needs...

    Looks good! Very cool headstock. I don't think I have ever seen a maple fretless before. Was that a special order?

    That's not a brand I know, but others will chime in. Forum members seem to have gotten good results with a lot of different spray paints.

    That's one of my all-time favorite Fender colors. Much nicer on guitars than any car I have seen it on ;-) The SD's will sound great on it, I am guessing.

    Not much help for impulse purchases, but...

    I had a car almost that exact color in my youth. Really looks classic. Amazing how it's the same guitar as what you started with, but absolutely everything is better.

    My favorites are the ones you look at and *almost* recognize, but the closer you look, the more you see that it hasn't been done before--especially if they look like they'd be good to play ;-)

    The holy grail is unique, while still being cool. Often the product of a happy accident ;-) Not the easiest thing in the world to come up with a new take on a Tele. I think you've done it!

    I don't think it's harder. You just need to believe your ears and your hands. I generally start by going to a couple of shops that have a lot of acoustics. Play them all. See what your hand likes,...

    Pics of the actual build are always good. If it's wired as in the pics you referenced it should work and make some sound.

    I had not seen the offset technique, but I think Simon raises some really good points. I would be reluctant to put that sort of stress on the wood. What also "resonated" with me was Simon's comment...
