Cheers Dave.  It's got that bridge as it's correct for a '72 Thinline Tele and that's what Warmoth drilled the body for  ;)

Thanks for the kind words folks - I'm off to play it again.......

I very much doubt it Philly! I need money first - will be selling some stuff soon, including the Signature LP I bought from Dave a few months ago  :? Bloody GAS is a nightmare.

Dunno what I'd build if I did another!  I would definitely do it again  :)

Just to close this off, a couple of final pics.

And the pretender  ;)
