    Finished this guy up about a week ago. Alder body with DuPont Chromabase Fiesta Red. Clearcoat is pre - cat nitro that I added cosmetic grade sparkle powder into. Neck is All Parts Fat with same color on headstock as body. Wired as a Tele 3 - way with two mini - humbuckers. Top loading bridge I had laying around ( will likley replace with Wilkinson cut off 3 saddle Tele sooner or later. Cut the pickguard out of some single ply black pickguard I had laying around.

    Cool

    I'm a big fan of those. I've been contemplating a build with a Rosewood Strat/jazzmaster neck and maybe even a jazzmaster trem.

    Believe he was inspired by the Gretsch Jupiter (Billy-bo)

    Yup. Got it from a cool dude in Arkansas. I also have one with a full Tele single coil setup that needs to be finished.
