Here's some pics of the Guitar Fetish Tele kit I put together. I applied some thin maple, walnut, and lacewood to the top. One coat of amber shellac, and lacquer. This kit went together quickly with no problems. Thanks, Dan

Thanks Chris,
I've done several maple tops and I really like the amber color.
The shellac was difficult to brush on. A second coat instantly dissolved the first.
My little bandsaw can only resaw about 2" high so I cut the maple into strips.
Looks kind of strange, but it has lots of sparkle. My son playes the heck out of it.
