    Fabiomayo, is that a one-piece rosewood neck with not dots on that guitar? Pretty! And yes, lots of cool guitars on this string...

    Yes, it's a one piece neck with no dots, can't remember the wood though.
    It's not rosewood, maybe walnut.

    And yes, this thread has some guitars.... :AOK

    I call it a working collection.

    I used to collect wine (I'm in the business) but now don't really drink anymore.

    So Telecasters it is. :AOK

    My wife has been patient with me, but now says there must be a limit.

    Limits???? :crazyguy :crazy :NUTS :eek:

    Mongrel Partscaster Tele I just built, Squire neck, Ebay body and hardware, wilkinson tuners, GFS bridge pickup, Rio Grande neck pickup. Plays and sounds great if a little neck heavy:

    Atrox: That is one gorgeous guitar!
    Never heard of mason, is it a parts tele or a luthier "build-from-scratch"?

    Stunning! How did you wire it (pot values, etc)?

    Thanks! Mason is my brand name. This guitar in particular is a parts guitar. More explaination below.

    If I remember 300k's were used pots and a 4 position switch was used.

    This guitar was actually a Harmony Central forum collaboration (which is something we should think about doing here as well maybe). One guy wired the pickguard (except the pickups), another painted and finished the body (which is a warmoth), another finished the neck (Wenge neck/ebony board from USA Custom Guitars. He used a oil/wax mixture I think to preserve the grain and natural feel.) I assembled, set-up, cut the nut, installed the pickups, and dressed the frets. We all did it for free too. the owner should actually be getting the guitar tomorrow. I'm excited to hear what he thinks. i think it's one of the best guitars I have ever played.

    Here is a video of me showing it off to the forum

    To answer Carli's question more accurately. I am just starting to build my own designs for bodies and necks. The bandsaw is hot. :AOK
