The lefty Cicada I am building... Solid koa on tulip poplar.

The neck is being built now and it will be birdseye maple with a pistatio fingerboard. Progress to date... Not finish sanded by any stretch of the imagination, but will give you a good idea what it will look like.

Nice Boggs, I like the fact that you are using a Tele control plate. I always use them when I build my own guitar bodies. although I bring the volume pot where you have the 5 position switch and move the selector switch to the rear end of the guitar. And I move the volume pot nearer the rear pup, so the control plate does not run parallel to the center line of the instrument.

Depends on what I am playing. When I need extra sparkle, 25.5. When serious bends are required or if my shoulder was particularly sore, 24.75. I haven't played any of my guitars in 25" yet as I have not built one fully yet, but I expect I will like this as well. Fair copout? :)
