Color balance is off due to the phone camera used to take this picture. it'll be a hardtail and have relief cuts (belly and forearm) like my project one. It should sound sweet!!

Isn't Ash one of Fender's favorite woods for Strats/Teles?

Yes or no, its a good looking piece to start off with!

Also, digging what is starting to look like your "signature" alteration to the Tele body's tail end. Its a nice piece of aesthetic flair.

Thanks! It's actually 2-pieces bookmatched. You can see the seam particularly at the neck pocket.

Rasping is tough on the hands, but it eventually gets the job done.
