    Ziricote telecaster im building

    A while back i refretted a 70's Greco telecaster for a relative and while testing it out though my rig i caught the tele bug. Wasnt able to find one of those Grecos decently priced or one that didnt need a ton of work so i decided to just make a tele. Should have this finished in the next week or so.

    Specs:
    Ziricote top w/ ribbon figure mahogany body (seriously nice piece of mahogany)
    Roaster maple neck w/ flame maple fretboard (ziricote fret marker dots)
    Carbon fiber rods with double action truss rod
    Chambered body with F hole
    Lindy Fralin blues Set (thanks to MG's suggestions)
    Gotoh modern telecaster bridge.
    Neck profile is a copy of a Charvel Socal (Mex) used Dan Erliwines bondo trick to make profiles gauges.

    So far only the one pick but i'll update the thread when its finished

    Auw, that looks so sexy, in a very classy way
    Never seen a Ziricote build that failed to please.
    Will be watching this one..

    Which mahogany is used for the body?
