    The RUTTERS Hot Rod Bridge- fat for full tone and sustain but vintage narrow under the Pickup for twang!

    That looks tempting, no?

    Looks like you decided on the Tangerine too. The finish checking looks great on it. Enjoy the build.

    Yes. Custom color but everything else (okay, most) vintage correct for my candy tangerine Blackguard :cool: It‘ll be a Hot Rod for sure. Fingers crossed that Neck and Pickguard will arrive this weekend :rolleyes:

    Hey cool - I’ll be interested to see what you think about the Klein’s. I considered them for my Tele being built........but I decided on Mojotone ‘52 Quiet Coils.

    I‘ve bought the KLEIN Broadcaster after I‘ve heard some soundfiles. Really curious!

    Wow!
    I may just copy everything you do at some point :D

    MJT prefinished body?
    Can you remind me what neck you are going for?

    Thanks ;)
    Yep, I‘ve bought the MJT body 2nd hand, very nice. Alder, Closet Clean.
    I‘m waiting for a 3A flamed Mapleneck from Musikraft.

    Super cool.
    Closet Classic type to very light relic’ing is my fave.
    What body weight do you look for to keep the guitar in the 7.5 lb or less range (if that matters to you)?

    That matters a lot. The body isn‘t super light (4.1 lbs)...I hope it’ll be something around 6.2 lbs (my TVcaster is roundabout 5.6 lbs).
    And yes, closet classic is the perfect relic for me too. And man, that body is heavy checked!

    You're doing it again!
    I keep my fingers crossed that this one's gonna be a lot easier than the wonderful TVcaster

    6.2 lbs for the loaded body right? How heavy do you anticipate the whole guitar to be? Or is that for the whole guitar !?
    Yeah I dig that checking..

    Now that's what I call light weight! Any issue with neck dive?

    That weight is awesome. My Anni Jr. is under 6.5 lbs with strap, can't imagine what itd feel like at 5.6.

    Great build, even for a guy who has no personal interest in teles.

    Still waiting for the neck, but I don‘t think there‘ll be a neck dive. The body is proper 4.1 lbs unloaded, bridge and controlplate are pretty heavy, neck is about 1.1 lbs so 6.2 lbs should be realistic.

    The neck arrived today, all’s good but I‘m unsure if it’s too pale for my liking :rolleyes:
    Since it‘s nitro lacquered it will slightly darken. Argh...but that will take a few years :confused:
