Holy Molly....finally done, and am happy with the results. :thumbs

My choice of body woods made the difference (Mahogany neck & body) has given me that thick chunky bottom, and clear sweet tone you would hear coming from a "LP".....disguised in a Tele body! :yikes

The neck p/u is a SD Jazz, SD SH-4 JB (coil split/push-pull) at the bridge my brother.

Normal P/U selection via (on on on) mini switch:
tonal possibilities are, Neck only / Both p/u's / Bridge only....push/pull vol. pot to activate the coil split.

Looks like a fine fiddle. Is the truss rod adjustment some sort of bevel gear? Looks pretty handy if that is what I am seeing.
I don't usually find a use for this smiley :flipa , but I like so there you have it.
