Default DIY Telecaster

I build the body, neck was taken from a Yamaha. Wood is rosewood. Sounds great and doesn't go out of tune. Been playing it for a few months and the neck still stays in place. . The Yamaha bridge pick up sounded bad so I wound a new one, that's the reason it's not in the pic.

That looks really really good.
If you take more pics, post them in the "Post your musical instruments here" section, and then it will be immortal!!

If I take more pics it wouldn't look really really good anymore.
A couple of minor mistakes: one in the back ( the holes through the body for the strings are not perfectly aligned) and another in one side (wrong angle) but I have to admit that in that pic it looks the work of a pro. My tools were not the best for the job; still, I'm happy with the result.

Wasn't aware of the "Post your musical instruments here" thread, will check it out.
