    Thanks for the heads up on reranch. I'll take care. I loved the idea of the 2 brass barrel bridge, but figured I'd benefit from 4 saddles if I'm going to be switching from the low/high G.

    That thing is going to be awesome when it's finished.

    Thank you very much JBennett and Andrew,
    I ordered the four string bridge unit from moongazer web. I might look into having some made with a slightly wider spacing for my tastes but this should give me plenty of fun playing with strings and compensations.

    Really great build! If it was me I'd be content with the wood natural since it's already a nice colour and all. But best of luck finishing it!

    I always wanted a Rickenbacker lookalike uke, thought that'd be cool. But the tele body looks ace, good work.

    I bet you would have no problem selling it to Bruce Springsteen when it's finished. ; 0 )

    Here is my design for the headstock decal. I'm going to try to screen print some this week.

    Ooooh, how did you do that? Guess it's not a font as there are differences between the letters. Very nice that is!

    Thanks. I did it using adobe illustrator on my mac. I traced the old Fender logo and made my own "B" based on the fender "F" and made the t's in the style of the fender "d". It took some time, but it's the only way to do it. It's such a beautiful logo (the original Fender spaghetti logo) and no font comes close since it was hand drawn back in the late 40's.

    The model name was just pieced together in photoshop from a high rez scan of an old tele.
