    I see your EMG'd 8-string and raise you....



    My 7-string tele, other than the extra string true to a "real" tele :p

    I like this, but I think it might look better with a half bridge or a strat hardtail bridge

    I agree. . . My gear closet is just jammed full of "affrontery."

    Is it an influence, or an affrontery though?

    Was watching Austin City Limits last night and some chick was playing a DC Thinline Tele with Filtertrons in it. Looked great, sounded great.

    Here's one I saw on Instagram the other day... I don't think it's been posted here, but if it has, it deserves a second look. Whew! yikes.jpg

    Every time someone posts one of these threads, I open it half expecting to see a half dozen of my projects displayed.
