Building a 1963 Vintage Lake Placid Blue Telecaster - Overview of the Complete Process

The first of the two screws that I broke while attaching the tuning heads. I carefully drilled holes; knowing that the maple was very hard, and drove the screws by hand. About two-thirds of the way in the head just busted off. I was pissed to say the least. Now I had to drill out the broken screw (see more about this in the Tuners section).
