    Baritone tele build (Bruce)

    Hi guys I'm back....
    I'd like thank Adam for doing a Baritone neck.
    I've bought a 27" and I'm throwing it onto Tele body.
    I was going to do a borax/enamel dip for the finish, but it to good a bit of timnber to hide behind paint!

    Yep true story Bruce, it would be a shame to hide that one. What are you thinking, grain pop and a light stain or clear?

    A light cedar stain, I'm thinking 70's style colouring.

    The supplied pick guard is not doing it for me.
    I might just make a min one to hold the neck pickup and show more of the timber.

    You could always direct mount the Neck PUP, i always find something funny looking about those little pickup rings on a tele. That's completely personal view of course.

    I've just given the body a quick sand, wiped it with a damp cloth to pop up the grain, sanded it again and p it a grain sealer on.
    It's starting to look pretty shmick!
