    I don't make threads about anything I buy, build, own. Too many people want to just knock ya down, take pot-shots, tell ya how they would have done it...yadda yadda . That's one thing this place is REALLY bad about.

    But to answer your questions, it's a 2 pc swamp ash weighing a hair under 4 pounds (raw body).
    Finished, reliced and assembled by me.
    SME TL69 pickups.
    Fender stamped bridge with my wifes BD stamped in it. :)
    Reverse switch mod (I didn't have one like that yet).
    AllParts V-shaped neck. 9.5 radius. Finished by me.
    Vintage tuners.
    I went with the one-ply pickguard. It just looks better IMO.

    All in all it's a nice guitar and it is a clean sounding thang too, not bluesey or dirty. Nore Merle type sound.
    I just got the Vibrolux Reverb last week. It is OK, but not as good as my Deluxe to my ears. I may move it on later.
    I didn't do a NAD for the same reasons I already stated. Toxic to show your stuff off a lot of times.

    Thanks for asking though. :)

    Thanks for the detail - much appreciated and a lovely build.


    To be fair, this forum has been kind to my NGD and build threads. I don't care much about critique but I do take it all on board. The haters can hate and, they demean themselves and, mostly, it is obvious.

    I care more about people like me that come to this good site for wisdom and experience. If in is not shared it is lost.

    I don't know how to post a picture to show you all my Tele. Last week I purchased a 1964 AVRI Tele in White Blonde. I love the way that guitar plays and feels. The sound is incredible. :)
