    Hi,

    Just wanted to share some pictures of my new baby : custom crafted Jazz Archtop telecaster , built for me by a French luthier located in Rennes.

    Body : chambered African mahogany
    Top : hand carved flamed maple
    Neck : long tenon set-in birds-eyes maple with ebony fingerboard and mother of pearl side dots
    Electronic : Di-Marzio PAFPRO with 3 ways toggle switch : humb / split /parallel ; and russian 30nf capacitor for soft mellow tone cut
    Hardware : Through body strings hardtail with Taipan tone bar, Grover deluxe locking machines-head , 2 way double bars "HOT ROD" truss-rod

    Very versatile although it features only one pickup :
    - clear / acoustic Jazz tones (parallel coils)
    - warm jazz with (humb + tone cut)
    - great Tele style crunch with split and parallel coils

    Craftsmanship is PRS level, see below :

    That is amazing! I mean, the body work is absolutely stunning,, the curves and slopes look how I bet they sound...haha! The pickup position is perfect for jazz application, very well thought out....I am very much a purist when it comes to the telecaster look and tone, but when you see this guitar you know it is a jazz cat...excellent, thanks for sharing the drawing as well!

    Are you going to cover the pickup? That would take it from great to perfect, I think.

    Pickup cover or ring? I think this is a boxers or brief question. Right now, the guitar is going commando.

    No, I find the black Dimarzio more sober , it fits the black flames of the top :)
