Strong work! Love the thinline style. Color looks great, nice job on the binding. Mahogany back?

Where did you end up with for weight on it? The last tele I built was a solid body out of Cherry and it weighs a TON, but I love it. I’ve got a slab of Mahogany under the bench right now that is destined for a thinline like yours.

Curious to hear what you put in it for pickups? The bottom looks like a Duncan little ‘59.

Back is walnut.. I tone In the color some to make it a little darker. Pickup are Seymour Duncan Vintage stack & little 59…. Top is Flame maple it was done in black indian ink sanded back down to show the wood grain then a water down purple TransTint… with the black it makes the grain of the wood pop out. The TransTint you can pick it up at WoodCraft.com it’s about 20.00 a bottle it will last a long time
