    That's pretty dang close. Just needs a rosewood neck. Do you think it would look decent without the binding? Trying to keep these builds as low cost as possible since I'm having to pay a left testicle and a portion of my shaft for the rosewood necks.

    Edit: I'm seeing some without binding on the google image search (without the rosewood necks of course) and they look decent though the binding really makes it much classier. However, without the binding and lightly relic'd it may look good. It's gonna be getting a nitro finish anyway so it'll probably wear fairly quickly knowing the way I punish my (non vintage) gear.

    None. Since I got my Les Paul Traditional Pro, I haven't felt the need for any others. I keep thinking I should sell the others I've got.

    The rosewood necks are nice imho, the last Fender I bought was a rosewood neck Standard. Last guitar I bought though is the Ibanez Jet King.

    These two guitars below (Ricenbacker Roger McGuinn Signature model 12-string & the AllParts paisley are two guitars that I'm badly GAS'ing for at the moment.

    To me, the difference between GAS and a mere pipe dream is that GAS includes actual hope that I can someday afford it. So while I'd love the Rick, I'll have to be content gassing for the imitation.

    Man that strat is beautiful. Is the neck completely raw or is there some finish on it? I am totally in love with raw rosewood necks.

    A lot of nice guitars to look at here. For years I had wanted a Gibson Flying V and eventually I found one and it was my main guitar for a decade. I play mostly Teles now, but still have a thing for oddly shaped guitars. This is a Shelton Solar Sonic. It has a wide range buckers, a Mastery bridge and trem, and it's in Fiesta red. It's also $2,300. Haha. So I'm building myself two Tele birds to ease the gas. Will they be as nice? Probably not, but it will be built to my specs and I can even throw my Rolling bender on it. p3_uygtynsol_so.jpg p4_upiksdkbd_so.jpg
    Now I"m trying to decide if I should make one a baritone so I can get my spaghetti western on.

    Yes! I don't have a baritone, but I love spaghetti western stuff. Uploading some SW improv to my YouTube channel in the next few days.

    Honestly this is a hard question for me because the 4 teles I have are the best instruments I've ever owned and more than meet my needs and satisfy my desires. My cup runneth over...

    No it was no different than a rosewood board in that sense, raw one piece engraved. Thanks.

    They are nice the switching neck profile, rim burst etc. I like the new C profile neck, some have Alnico III humbuckers also, which were pretty well recieved.

    Guild S-200 Thunderbird Reissue. Already own a Jazzmaster and Jaguar and this is right up my alley. Will give me another versatile guitar with a ton of available tones, but with humbuckers and the scale length falls right in between the Jag and JM. Finally played one today and just ordered one!

    Well, my GAS attack finally found some relief today ... the pictured Limited Edition Surf Green Solid Rosewood Neck American Standard Tele in my post on page 1 of this thread arrived in the mail from MF as a 20% discounted, no tax, no shipping cost, "open box". For the life of me, I can't find any trace of evidence that it is not factory fresh - all plastic, couldn't even find smudges on the pickguard protective film. Some say this is MF's way of moving product at discount, makes me wonder if they're right. Anyway, after a few quick set-up mods to my liking, it's everything I'd hoped for. The rosewood is a little more raw than I expected, but it is pleasing and makes it quite different from my other guitars - which was the origin of my bloating GAS to start with! Nice to grab a fairly distinctive American Standard as they vanish from the "new guitar" market!
