    Hell All,

    I did a search and couldn't find a thread for Mark and Matt Jenny's awesome work. Although both of these have been posted in other locations, here they are in appreciate of the fine work at MJT.

    Beck Tribute Esquite. USACG Neck and Body finished by Mark. Callaham hardware, Lollar pickup.

    I am very excited to have another guitar arriving from Matt and Mark shortly. This is the first one that is not a USACG body and neck.

    The Body of this one is a Wildwood and the Neck is an Allparts TMO-FAT. Total weight is 5 lbs 14 oz.

    Here's mine. I diggit! Great work by the MJT team (their body, with a Fender 50's Classic Tele neck, Fralin stock bridge pickup, Callaham bridge/saddles/hardware throughout).

    Superbadj,

    That color is awesome. The white Pickguard really fits the bill as well.

    Forgive the crappy cell phone pic. My MJT body is the one in the middle. The guitar stand is my 68 DR.

    Here's my MJT Beck Esquire Tribute. Duncan Antiquity and NOS PIO caps in the wiring harness. Mark and Matt's work and customer service is fantastic! Great guys to work with.

    strat71, I am not usually a fan of Rosewood fretboads, but yours looks amazing.

    straightface, Being left-handed must totally limit your options. A company like MJT has to be a godsend.

    Eric W, I love it, but I am biased.

    Certainly is a godsend. All three of the guitars in the pic are partscasters. The one on the left has a USACG body and a Rice Custom neck, The MJT has a Musikraft neck and the esquire is a USACG body with an MIJ Fender neck. All keepers.

    The body was one of the prefinished bodies. It wasn't far off from what I wanted in my head and it was cheaper than getting it done to my preferences, so I saved a few bucks. The neck is an Allparts TMO-V (7.25, vintage frets, V back). The neck will be aged to match the body. It will have a white guard and be close to a mid 50's Esquire. I have an AVRI62 bridge pup that will go in it for the time being, but it will most likely end up with a Don Mare Green Onions.

    Keep in mind I am not a huge fan of relics, I don't like getting nicks and scratches on my guitars. I figured if I got one already banged up... I won't care when I add more.

    Sounds like it is going to be a looker and a player. Don't forget to check out the Arlo And Eldred mods for the Esquire to get that "Cocked Wah" Sound.

    I wasn't a big fan of relics before I started my Jeff Beck Esquire. I have seen the Fender Custom Shop relics, the relics from Nash, and other relics, but I had never seen a MJT. It turns out one of the reasons I wasn't a fan of the relics previously is that they aren't weren't well done. I have no idea how Mark does his finishes, but they are very believable and I really enjoy his work.

    Plus, you are correct, you won't panic when it gets a ding or a scratch.

    Forrest Lee jr. It is quite an amazing guitar. I'm sending my black mjt out to him when I get the scratch. See a pattern in my guitars?
