Poor Ron Woods, Who would have ever thought his Tele looked like that..
I'll start the bidding @ $1 for the brass saddles & switch plate cover if the S&H is FREE..
Just ship me those parts & a video of you burning the rest in the fireplace please..

WOW!! Check out the binding!! So smooth & professional looking..

And Yeah I wonder which one of the forum members here built that POS = Pile..

LOL

I dont like tele's to begin with. This takes it to a whole new level :)

I'm pretty sure he learned how to paint guitars from the same place he learned about grammar

I think Ebay should ad a new button.."Buy it now....not!"

Along with shipping the fellow is asking a combined $100 for a pine body Tele that looks like it was sanded and painted by Ray Charles?

I agree that it's not good form to poke fun at the work of others, but this auction proves that I stupidly wasted tons of money on college and countless years slaving away at my normal job when I could have been making gazillions of dollars selling pure slop on Ebay.


If you look at his other auctions he's offering another Tele body. This one is a very fetching red color and has also been relic'ed to perfection.

Why is everybody making fun of my masterpiece? Now my feelings are hurt! I can barely type through all the tears. I put my heart and soul (and true oil) into this labor of love, and now my dreams are shattered. I may never put a coarse bristled paintbrush to the edge of a guitar again!

Wow the binding painting is ridiculous. Have some pride and at least tape off the lines. Looks like my 3 year did it.

Is it a Tele cake?

It looks like a cake with black and white frosting, and some shiny bits for effect.

As well as a $100.00 guitar pick :laugh2:

Sad fact: Someone may very well buy that pick for a C-note

It'd look better with a flame top done the most realistic way possible... By setting fire to the f*#ker!

I'll show all of you! I'm going to keep it and finish it! When I'm done, I'm going to present it to the greatest musician ever! Then you will all be jealous of my Kanye Signature Tele! Now, to attach the neck... anybody got any hyde gloo?

Kind of looks like he fed pigeons white paint and put the guitar under them and that's how the "binding" was painted.

I often have to restrain myself from making unkind comments about what I consider to be some really UGLY hand made guitars, but in this case I don't feel that any restraint on my part is needed.

That just needs to be fed to the wood chipper and then burned, and that's that.

If we could get it for really cheap, it could become a LC forum challenge. See if we can take a piece of dog crap and make it presetable.
