‘49 snakehead or ‘72 Deluxe? Why not both?

    Just finished another project.

    Pickup: Creamery “Baby ‘71.”
    Electronics: kill switch and a Gibson veritone switch (five-way frequency notch filter).

    Warmoth body and neck (fat vintage with 7.25 radius and jumbo frets).

    The final touch was embedding a real ‘77 Cadillac chevron into the body.

    That's about as unique a guitar as I've seen in a while. Well done! Never seen a bridge like that before. Is that designed to accommodate a bigsby more easily?

    Yes. It’s a Vibramate bridge for drill-lessly installing a B5 Bigbsy.

    I had it laying around and used that sole part as an an excuse to build a new Tele, BTW :D

    Very cool. Love the Varitone - very under-used circuit. Can you share where you sourced it?

    Really great looking guitar! I love the Caddy emblem in combination with the Seafoam (?) Green. It really fires the imagination and looks like a lot of fun to play.
