Damn sure I’ve got tele guards somewhere. I will make an effort to find them today.

Ugh.
Yes.

One assumes the guard is going to get cut right up :lol:

I'm loving this build!!!

Is there any chance that you could screw the pickups directly into the body, so that you don't have to have the pickup surrounds?

Top mounting is a bit thing.
I like the rings. And I’m usually a staunchly not wraparound guy too, but I’m liking where this is going.

I mean like a wolfie or charvel. I think it would look quite cool like that, and easy to do. I'm really liking the bridge too. I don't think I've seen one like that on a tele before.

I'm loving that black pickguard!!! I like the way it matches the pickup rings

So do I and it'll probably be how it ends up, but i'm also thinking black rings, white guard hints just a little towards Flying V, Explorer territory.

OK... we need to get something straight here... although you're building this guitar for yourself... you don't get the final say on what it looks like... we do!!! hahahaha

.... How about cream coloured rings?

Chrome rings with the black pickguard would look awesome, I might even have some...
