I've been real happy with the Tele Keystones, from Bill Lawrence. Also laughably cheap.

I got a CNC router a little over a year ago, and am nearing completion of my first scratch built guitar with it. I'm using Fusion 360, which is made by Autodesk, the same people who make AutoCad. The ...

If you haven't found one yet, I just saw that Lee Valley now sells them $25 cheaper than StewMac. And they have free shipping right now.

I saw another one of these on ebay listed as a Greco, that's the only evidence I have to that claim, as there are no markings anywhere on it.

How do you make the board a perfect match for the neck?

Everything I've done has been repairs, or in the case of my latest build, cut with a CNC.

I usually use the rubber band method, but every fretboard I've glued has already been the correct size. I think, I would play it safe and put a couple locater pins in. Just hammer in some small brads, ...

When did you take class? I have a friend who did it years ago and he still hasn't put a finish on it. Seems a waste, as it's a great looking/sounding guitar.

I am also not a fan of gold hardware, but this looks great. Lots of nice details.
How heavy is it with that walnut? Did you chamber it at all?

Working on my first ever scratch build. Learning to use my new CNC router, plus the software for the design and cam, as well as two(TWO!) herniated discs have slowed the process quite a bit. It's gett ...
