    That's my newest Telecaster on the left, a really sweet partscaster that I inherited when my brother passed away in September, assembled by a friend a few years back. MIM Fender body, Warmoth neck, Fender Custom Shop Nocaster pickups, and yes, Mike put a Fender decal on it (I would have made him a custom decal, but he was funny about brand names). It's a wonderful guitar, and I feel Mike grinning whenever I play it.

    On the right is Little Joe, a bass I built several years ago. Guitar Fetish Pawlownia wood body (very light), neck was from fellow TDPRIer Rhomco, pickup is a split P-Bass style pickup from Peter Florance/VooDoo Pickups. Light as a feather, big deep sound, really a sweet bass.[​IMG]

    Nice set. That tele is in one of my favorite combinations. I always think of Steve Cropper when I see it.

    Never thought I'd say this to a guy-but nice pair! Very sweet. Sentimental too.

    I love that bass! Just too cool! I'd love one like that with a J-Bass pup at the bridge at the tele bridge pup angle and a 50's style tele bass pup in the neck slot.

    Nice Tele and Bass combo. I was thinking of building a bass similar to yours. I did see the bodies at Guitar Fetish. The prices are low, so that might make for a good starting point.
