    Hey guys,

    after the thick finish of my AVRI started to chip away I decided to refinish it. I always wanted a Tele in surfgreen, so here is my first refinish. I gave the body a light relic to match the neck.

    At first, here is the old finish :lol:

    And here are some pictures of the guitar. Still sounds good! :p

    Cool! The best Telecaster I've owned was a refinished '52 RI.

    Good for you! The only color that's better is Seafoam Green. Try a pearloid pg as long as you're at it. Should be beautiful.

    Thanks a lot! I think I´ll keep the blackguard...it adds some "edge" to the look, if you know what I mean.

    I was thinking, Bill Callaham has a single ply Mint Green that would look fetching. But almost any of the single ply choices would be very nice.

    +

    The guitar is gorgeous, but I have one misgiving: The Green body finish of the Tele doesn't play nicely with the orange of the original case. In my view.

    Were this my project, I'd swap the case out for a G + G in black tolex, black tufted lining.
