    My tele is covered. The front is grill cloth, the back is tolex.

    I think I saw a tweed on once too.

    Maybe Girl Brand has done something with cloth as well?

    Of course, there's always ZZ Top.

    agreed, the tolex pickgaurd is like the perfect accent to the grill cloth. Great stuff!

    That is incredible! Did you make it? All it needs is a speaker mounted in the front ;)

    I remember the first time that amp caster Tele was posted here.

    I still think its one of the coolest Teles ever. The jewel light is so cool and it looks great.

    Im actually surprised no one has ripped ff this design and made these for sale.

    I ran across this post last week and was so blown away by the telecaster that I had to steal the idea, join this forum, and post a picture of the result

    Almost embarrassed to post this after those two, but I've been working on this for the last few days:

    It is far from perfect, but it has been surprisingly easy.
