FS: A strange single pup telecaster/Behringer Neutron

Now, the Telecaster
I don't want to sell this, but life happens. I've barely even had a chance to play it, so it's very much like new! Built over the summer.

Beautiful wood, wonderful feeling neck, and it sounds awesome.

Mahogany body with maple burl cap, finished with Tru Oil (routed for tele neck pup)
Roasted maple neck (Wamoth), unfinished except for burnishing. Stainless frets, Fatback, Modern construction.
Hipshot Griplock locking tuners
Tusq nut
Custom cream pickguard
CTS pots, vintage oxblood knobs
Dimarzio Tone Zone T pickup
Wilkinson bridge
Duncan Straplocks

The not so great details:
Three little issues. I did not fill in the pores and then stupidly used a paste wax over the tru oil, which got into the maple burl in an ugly way (see pictures). Some time with a toothpick or toothbrush could likely fix that issue. Also, the body was poorly drilled and thus the neck holes didn't line up perfectly with the neck. I enlarged the body holes and then just used a small piece of sanding screen to add some friction in the neck pocket. It's tight as hell with that half-measure fix. I've yanked hard and can't get the neck to budge. But still, ideally you'd want to have the body holes plugged and re-drilled to match the neck. You'll also see that the bottom portion of the pickguard doesn't perfectly follow the contoured body shape.

Price: $660 shipped in the US, but feel free to make me an offer. Also open to trades for a cheap guitar + cash (try me...I'm not too picky).

I'm in the Providence area, so if you're in New England or NY, I'm happy to meet up for a lower price.
