Headache Telecaster - hand made by Me ;)

With great but it's a great pleasure to present the first guitar made ​​by me.
I was a little modeled on the Fender Custom Shop Telecaster Albert Collins, but this guitar is a little bit of my modifications I even adjust the head, neck profile made ​​beneath me, staining, etc.

Specifications:
body - ash, glued the two pieces
Neck - one piece, with inset maple merbau, vintage truss
Scale - Standard Telecaster, 21 thresholds
thresholds - Jumbo
bridge - vintage wilkinson
saddle - a bone
transducers - wilkinson's budget
electronics - switch, potentiometers, etc - fender

Sorry for my English - I use the translator










Guitar was playing by a professional musician - my teacher anyway;)
Recorded cell, without correction, but heard something Jet City tube amplifier.

Beautiful!

Hello new member! Well, I guess the only thing that has not been said or asked is, how does it play?
