    Here's a thing I put together from various odds and ends. It's a basswood body with a modified neck of unknown origin. Got hold of a Wilkinson Broadcaster pickup that is darker and more aggressive than usual for a tele and I modified the electrics to avoid the ultra-bass setting so it's a biting nasal sound now - I think it's using a fixed resistor and a 0.0047 cap in the forward position; standard 0.047 tone control in the mid position and straight out in the rear position. Colour is a mix from cellulose car paints. It's quite a snarly beast and not your country-clean at all.
