    That’s a good-looking build! I’m not usually a fan of gold hardware but it works on this build.

    Wow! That is an awesome guitar. I like everything about it. Neck, body contours , pickups, switching , everything. Should be an absolute delight to play! Or even just to hold!

    Those odds could be worse, could be 567,342,630 to 1! Let me know I'd be happy to!

    I sold this guy recently, though. I loved the look but did not bond with it. I think I made it so grand and "perfect" in my head and when I finally had it, it just didn't live up to my own expectations so I sold it!

    awe, the heartbreak of success.
    selling it does not negate your designer continuity. I think you possess conceptual continuity.
    please display your build as you please I look forward to seeing them
    over at the Warmoth site the have/had a builders display area and some of the examples were stunning, others were, well I hope they played and sounded well and good

    Beautiful! The Kotzen tele is on my list, not just for the signature aspect (though I am a huge fan of his). I need as much hum cancelling as I can get when I play and the 60 cycle hum is too much sometimes. In that vein, I am also doing a Warmoth Tele build... I am on the road for 3 week and can't get to it. Driving me nuts. My wife took a pic for me, so sorry for the poor quality of it. I am in India and needed a boost, so she snapped a quick pic.

    You can tell what I am going for... Best of both worlds so to speak. I have never had a modern Gibson that I could reliably gig with due to tuning stability, but LOVE a single pickup guitar. This has a maple cap and mahogany body. I have a Bare Knuckles War Pig Humbucker (21K output, I think), a 550K volume pot, 550K tone pot and a .022F oil and paper Bare Knuckle cap. Going with a modern Tele humbucker bridge, Schaller strap locks to fit my two straps, pretty much bog standard neck and vintage tuners. I cannot wait to get started on this!

    Thanks for posting yours, makes me feel good to see a beaut of a project completed!

    That's a killer body, are you going to put a pickguard on it? That sounds like it'll be a very fun build and I hope you post some photos of the final product! :)

    For anyone interested I have been finagling trades on the local the used market and through selling this tele, adding $250 on one trade, and trading for another guitar a couple times times, I managed to end up with something very unique that some may appreciate round these parts :) It certainly isn't a tele but the pickup configuration is close enough right??!! 2017 Aristides 060 from Netherlands.

    Very nice, stuffinplays.

    I love a humbucker by the neck, and, a Tele-style pickup by the bridge.

    I like that! As for a pickguard, I ordered one but will see how it looks with and without. Thanks for the kind comments.
