    This is one I slapped together after spending time with a friends awesome 1953 Tele. USACG fat Broadcaster shaped neck with 10" radius w/6105's, and USACG lightweight swamp ash body. Mark Jenny aged finish. NOS Stackpole 250k pots, Duncan Broadcaster bridge pickup, vintage Fender neck pickup rewound by Wolfe, early Fender 52 RI bridge plate, Glendale intonated bridge saddles, Callaham big knurl knobs. I canabalized the 50's vintage chromed flat blade screws from my kitchen cabinets. LOL
    I love this guitar!

    Very nice.:applause:
    I've played many 50's Tele's.
    LP's and Tele's are my passion.
    Man I wish they didn't cost so much.
    There was a great '52 player at the Arlington show last month.
    Was refinished years and years ago and only had a price tag of 9K.
    Man I wish I had the dough.

    I'd like to own a butterscotch Tele, but want something a lil different at least in the front pickup and would prefer a 22 fret neck Like Danny Gatton's or one with a Charlie Christian P 90 , I owned one Tele in my time that was given to me, but it had been in tropical weather without a case, thru several floods and typhoons, Pickups were nearly dead and the body was concave warped in the center, rosewood falling off the fretboard, was made in 62 , I gave it to another friend , as he knew the history of it

    Hi I am new here so I haven't really figured out the picture thing yet, but here is one of my latest creations;

    This is a recent completion. Nothing fancy, nothing poser, just sheer work horse!

    I love Les Pauls, but a Tele will make you Work for your applause!

    The tone is there, if you have got what it takes to force every drop of it out.

    This one is a one piece Honduras Mahogany Body, comfort cut like a Strat.

    Eastern Hard rock Maple neck with old Indian rosewood fingerboard

    Dunlap 6230 fretwire, and Lindy Fralin Pickups.
    All oil finish, so nothing impedes the the vibration of the woods.
