Tough choice this month - there are some excellent guitars on show and I think everybody deserves congratulations

Agreed. I'm a sucker for nicely-selected wood, and in spite of it being Pine (and a fairly fast-grown tree), @kmensik's got my vote. That has to be some of the best Pine I've seen in a while short of the super old-growth stuff I have on the stacks at work. The sanding and finish work on that is outstanding.

These are ALL great, great builds.  Every one of the entries has a feature or features that make me go "WOW - That's superb!".  

So, as in my voting before, I have no option than to resort to, "Which of these builds do I yearn to own, personally?"  And if I owned @ScottR's entry, I would simply assume I'd died and gone to heaven. :)

Well done, folks.  A superlative set of entries :)

Oh man tough decision for sure. I usually dislike Tele's but I'm liking  the travel caster entry. I would have liked to see it without the headstock "nub" where the logo sits. I had to go with the simplicity of the "Teen". I'm a sucker for natural finishes and I'm loving the neck transition.

I know, right? I mean, every entry this month is fantastic but there's something about the cleanliness and uncommonly-good looks of that Pine. Usually wide growth rings from the sapwood means sticky trashy splintery wood, and IIRC you got a bit of that didn't you, @kmensik? As long as its given plenty of time to dry and the resin to crystallise (or whatever it does) then you've got a great piece to work from like this one.

That Travelcaster. Wow. I'm not one for headless instruments in general, however that one certainly uses the hardware to its advantage and purpose. Cleanly executed and beautifully presented. I'm going to check out your build when I have a little more time, definitely.

@ScottR - I'll see you after class young man. Bloody carvers causing trouble and taking our jobs, etc. :lol:

That black Walnut is damn red-looking, @fretman_2! Red Oak is an interesting choice, and in fact we have a white Oak Telecaster slated for season one of the ProjectGuitar.com YouTube videos. Yours seems to resemble more of a hybrid between a Les Paul and a Tele though, but with a snakehead style paddle headstock. Cool stuff.

I'm very fan of kmensik's work, love his concept of simplicity and caring for details...

But I prefer unique designs, and the fact that the texan one was designed on the fly (with no computer aid) makes it a really special guitar, so it got my vote. Congratulations @ScottR , you're the boss.
