D, U, N - dun!!!

Congrats on completion.
I sort of just noticed the similarities between yours and my current project. (my sense of the obvious is not always that keen :^)

Tele body and maple/rosewood tele neck; body finish in the 'blue' family. That's pretty much where they end though.

Just got final colour coat on this morning.
High temps & humidity for the next few days, so clear will wait until next week (weather permitting).

Thanks!

Probably less “completion” and more, “I’m done with this.”

I’ve become smitten with the Nashville Tele. It’s become my favorite Fender configuration.

Yes, I should add that mine is "Nashvillian" in that it is a 3 pickup configuration too.

I also will add that I'm already eyeing my next project. A "T" thinline...

It's a sickness I tells ya!!!

I’ve got Mike’s Nashville underway. I’ve got another Tele body with a real Fender neck in the wings. And two set neck kits.

I'm just going to unload this one cheap. Any of you guys want a $200 (w/case) Nashville? It plays and sounds great. The finish is "meh." It's OK from about 3' or more.

Sorry, US only. It has a rosewood fretboard. The CITES police would not go for exporting it.

And I'll buy you a star.

It’s a Fender C style neck. 1 11/16” wide at the nut. .84” deep at the first fret.

Is it a compound radius? Is this the one where you shaved the neck to fit? If so, what's the width at the pocket?

I was planning to order a new neck from Warmoth but if this one fits the bill... :o)

You don’t want this for the neck only. Yes, this is the one I shaved.

I think it is 9.5” radius.

Cool!

The guy who was gonna buy my practice pedalboard is having second thoughts. That's the money I planned on to buy my new neck. :o/

Do you have a neck with the compound radius? If so, do you like it? I was thinking of test driving one for this project?

I have several on guitars. I do like them a lot. In fact, the only neck I’ve ordered from Warmoth with a constant radius is Mike’s. Their 10”-16” has become very comfy for me. The only thing I like better is a strait 12” radius.

Really? That's interesting! It doesn't feel that flat.

I might be wrong. Pretty sure the Agile LP-o-copy I have is 12”. It’s around a 2005, I think.
