Hello fellas, how are you all doing?
A little while ago I started a thread about combining a PRS and a telecaster into one shape. I just finished refinishing the first one. Anyway, pictures are better than words, so here.

Congrats, they look superb, what pickups are they running?

Wow man, awesome photos!

Nice lookers! I know that PRS is located in MD, as well. Do these guitars have any connections to the company?

No sir they do not. They basically use your basic Fender style construction. Here are pics of the development of the first one (the pink one) that used to be black. The idea was to make the guitar that PRS never did a take on, the telecaster. It's basically combination of the Custom shape and a Tele shape.
The red one uses Dimarzios. Super Distortion in the bridge, Fast Track in the middle, and a Pro Track in the neck.
The pink one uses Bill Lawrence USA L250's. Though not really Bill Lawrence pickups, I got real tired of waiting for my L-45's to show up. I ordered them in May and they still haven't showed up.
The burst guitar uses a custom set of Vintage Vibe pickups wound by Pete Biltoft!

Those are absolutely beautiful guitars. I love the look. They have some very sexy curves. You do stellar work.

They look excellent. I really dig the red Strat-esque one. Great to see another talented MD builder. Now if only I had the $$$...

I think you've got something here, it looks right.

Thanks for the positive words everyone! I appreciate it. The red one is probably my favorite of the bunch. I want to do another in black burst with a walnut pickguard and gold hardware.
