I have no idea if this will be my best this week, but the light was a bit tricky with a fluorescent household bulb camera left and halogen camera right. The ambient light accentuated the grain in the maple neck blank so well that I didn't want to use strobes.

As I am in the phase where I have to make small additions that take a lot of time to think through on the Telemaster build, I am now building a Telecaster from a kit. It will have a maple neck, basswood body and a modern rosewood-substitute for the fretboard. I have just marked out the shape for a slightly elongated No-caster-inspired headstock. The kit nut is an awful piece of plastic and will be replaced during the build.
