Kind permission from JUJU to try out a build with his bridge design, thanks JUJU.
I thought I'd try a Telecaster Thinline project with just the one f-hole and the body routered out. The top is 5mm maple and the body is Poplar. Having a thin seperate top to the guitar makes for easier cutting out for the bottle and f-hole, then stick the 2 together.
Also using our own pickup's for this build, made with a cutomized seawing machine to do the winding

Thanks for the comments guys. It's still whiskey at the moment JUJU, but can't guarantee it will be by the end of the build! it'll save me getting a Liquor License if I sell one lol !!
