    That is kewl looking grain. That is heart wood I assume? Looks dense too. How is it on weight? Oh crap I have not weighed mine yet. I will wait until final assembly.

    I don't really remember to be honest. I want to say 8.5 to 8.75 pounds. So a little on the heavy side.

    Well wrapped up a few odd and ends, threw a fresh set of strings on it. Actually the first time it has had a full set on it. Approximated the string heights, and I just wanted to play it. I have never played anything with P90's. I wonder what the string to pole gap should be around to start. Well it will be fun to learn how to do a setup with this one as a lot of it has been a learning experience. Not quite ready for a NGD thread but very close.

    Why thank you. I just thought I would give it go on this. I may want to surface a guitar with the copper. I hated to cover it up.

    I contacted our own leather wizard @Bodean to help me finish the Termite Tele. I wanted something I have never had before. After much back and forth I finally got it! I do like the smell of new leather.

    Strap09.jpg I never seem to have a pick I like on hand. Now I will. Strap06.jpg Thank you Mr. Bodean. Fine leather work. The perfect accessory to have with me and my Termite Tele. Strap08.jpg

    Your welcome. I thought it looked your color.:D
    I try to do varying colors to each one.
    I gotta make some more.
    I throw them in as freebies.
    Only a few had that stamp on them, it didn't work so well after stain was applied so I scrapped it.

    Oh...


    The neat little case came with an optional feature.


    Which is good because I was wondering why I had bought these things...

    Awesome work as always!
    I love the pick holder. I always have a couple of Jazz-IIIs in my Gibson pick holder.
