    This one is getting a lot of play time lately.

    2010 Fender American Special Sunburst Maple Neck.

    Klein Epic 52 (highly recommended) in the back, DiMarzio minibucker in the front.

    Just got my second Fender after 37 years. The Fender Lead II was my first electric, and is long gone.

    2006 American Deluxe Ash Telecaster - Butterscotch Blonde
    SCN P/U's and S1 switching (I can't imagine much better sound p/u's... some of the meanest and quietest single coil, I've ever heard)

    Thanks. I got a deal on this guitar new and it was one of those satin MIMS. Perfect as I liked the rosewood fingerboard for this project and it was solid wood no laminate. It sold fast and never had much time to play it. Out of the few I did, the others in Surf Green, this one turned out the best I think.

    This is surf green or what they call it. I and going to put a trebles bleed on it. It has a tad of ice pick in it.

    That's a great pick guard match. I use the orange caps too, don't know why unless I change the value I can't tell the difference from stock.

    Back in the day of off brand inexpensive guitars, the tone knobs always sucked. Rhythm went from muddy to muddier. Teisco Del Ray comes to mind.

    Oldish photo. One piece swamp ash body, custom bridge pickup, gfs mini humbucker, tru oil finish all around. I'm going to strip the neck and re-profile it because I don't like the profile in the end. I'm probably going to put nitro on for the simplicity compared to tru-oil, but I'm worried that I'll lose the perfect tru oil feel.

    Not Warmoth, though the neck came already put together but not dressed or finished. I think USACG maybe?

    Real shame about the control plate being backwards, but what can I do, it's too late :p
