    I love this one! Haha, orpheo already knows how much I love ash, but I really love how much the grain pops on this one! The neck is gorgeous too!

    The grain fill/finish on this one is "just right", in my opinion. I want to rub my grimey hands all over it!

    No, not particularly. I did use grain filler because ash without filler is a nightmare, but I only used 2 or 3 layers of nitro. I already noticed how super-fast the film of nitro would build up and I wanted the open pore feel, but not the 'grand canyon' feel of ash. I tried to strike a balance between those two. The porefill is also a sealer and colors the grains a bit, in aid of the white basecoat under the amber

    My July batch, Part 2: Roasted Tele

    I've had a thing for a Tele since way back when. I never had one I could go along with, though, since I started making my own. And now... my newest.

    *Roasted ash body, easy access heel
    *Roasted flamed maple neck
    *Olivewood fretboard, 22 frets, 10"- 14" compound radius, walnut dot inlay
    *Angled headstock, bone nut, 6 in line tuners, dual action trussrod
    *Kluson steel bridge, 3 brass saddles
    *Bakelite pickguard
    *Thin Skin nitro finish
    *Seymour Duncan Jerry Donahue Lead and Rhythm '54 (I believe?)
    *Custom wiring

    This is the best sounding guitar I have made. Ever. Period. The simplicity makes this absolute gold.
