the 7-string guitar come-back

On Friday my carpenter friend came to check the Doppelcaster, she looked pitifully at my chisel, my rasp and the mutilated tele bodies, and decided to take them to her workshop, rectify them with her machines, and glue them since she was at it... Lucky me! 

But since all my tools were ready for action, I decided to spend a little bit of time on this semi-abandoned 7-string project, and if I can find a few extra hours it can be finished quite soon - at least the technical work, then I'll do the cosmetics...

pickguard sketch

Was watching yesterday at the short lived Tele Junior with its very cool reduced pickguard - on the Doppelcaster it would look quite good... Now I'm suffering trying to make the two bodies fit exactly to glue them together... Will ask soon the help of a pro because I have the feeling that what I try to do might be completely stupid!
