Great looking guitars you have there Dave.  I also wanted to say thanks for the work you did on the CNC videos.  By the way do you have any of the table saw fence "T's" still laying around?

Hey Dave, nice to meet you and thanks for the offer of help on the solid body group. I'm after a plain square solid body routed out to take a standard style fender neck and tele pickups. I found the picture attached on google and this is sort of the thing but I prefer the single coil sound rather than humbuckers. I've got all the parts to put one together just not the body its self. There are loads of plans on google to get the measurements for routing but I have no expertise in this field but with the parts I sure can set them up. Can you help?

Hi Dave, welcome to the community.  I bet that cnc machine can do anything. I look forward to watching your builds.
