Telecaster pair finished

David Weaver
One in limba, one in khaya. Both sort of outside the traditional fender for one reason or another.

The maple neck was a purchased neck, but everything else is hand made.

The mahogany guitar uses a nontraditional pickguard, so I just traced it and roughed it out with drill and gouges. This is not well received in the guitar community where on of the key indicators of quality is how clean the hidden cavity routs are (this is, of course, a very strange thing to fixate on.
