    It pays to delve into the build diary section on whatever project you are going to have a go at.
    There have been several with issues regarding the 'TL' so I took it as a challenge.

    This is keeping me busy whilst waiting for veneer to finish my JM-1 (build number 2)

    cheers, Mark.

    Decision time.
    The bridge has to move back a small amount to give optimum intonation leeway.
    The limitation of movement is only a couple of mm, due to the front of the rout emerging from under the front of the bridge.
    If I was going for a solid colour there would be the option of filling the front edge.
    As it's initially a wood stain, I'm just doing the mimimum movement required.

    As you can see this means the standard pickguard is aesthetically out of place.
    I'll cobble one up initially from some offcut I have laying around.

    Compromise is reached.
    Any further back and the front of the rout will start showing.
    I reckon there's now plenty of leeway for intonating.

    I hope that's it, otherwise I can't see what's wrong.

    Here's the day's progress. Still have to cut the pickup hole, but the main concern for now is the bridge/control section.

    No sign of the neck plate, or jack plate and 3 way switch yet, so plenty of time for that.

    cheers, Mark

    Looks good, gap looks correct and like it will all line up. I'd wait to drill pick guard/control plate holes until you have the neck fitted so you can do any fine tuning to the pick guard to get it all nice and straight. Looks like there is a little overhang on the neck pocket, so it might be all good anyway once rotated a little.

    Cheers, Sonic. Yes I have a bit of 'finessing' to do yet.
    I still have to screw down the bridge plate as it doesn't sit properly as yet.
    In reflection, I'm now considering leaving the neck pickup out altogether.
    I already have a Tele with one anyway, and opt for something different.

    cheers, Mark.

    I was going to say it looks really tidy without the neck pickup. Some day down the road you could put a Hotrails or something in it to make it a 'sleeper'
