I think when I last left you, I had refinished my old Mustang in red (I've changed the color several times over the decades), and replaced the old neck with the worn frets and fingerboard with a new neck:
Well, that lasted a few days, until my wife convinced me that I should put the old neck back on, and just keep it as a vintage guitar. I thought as long as I was doing that, I might as well try to get it back close to the original color. 😲
So here it is. blue again with the old neck:
Now, what to do with that new neck and bridge?
I had put extra money into it for an ebony fingerboard, graphite nut, stainless steel frets, and locking tuners, not to mention my home made decal:
Easy answer to that question... build a new Mustang! 😁
It's in the works... A swamp ash body that I'm almost done clear lacquering. I'll let it harden a while, then put it all together.

I'm putting in two Carvin dual rail humbuckers.
Each slide switch will be --> |--- Humbucker -|- Off --| Single Coil
The tone control will be a push/pull pot that will be used for phase reversal.
I'll post pictures when I'm done.
Here's a sneak preview:
