    Plenty of other proper closeups in this recent thread, so here's our friend Jina modelling another for us at church with much spunk, anime charm, and a tough-girl grimmace:

    Telegazer, great music on your Myspace page, I listened to and enjoyed every song. Very cool. Were you Cindi500?

    Sorry for the thread hijack folks, carry on with the Esquires.

    Here's my heavily modded MIM Esquire. Still haven't bonded with all the B-Bending contraptions but it is a great playing and sounding guitar!

    Nice shot on the bender, thaus! The lighting is indeed a plus.




    Thanks so much for comments, and we appreciate that you took the time to listen to our under - produced noise. We're trying to finish an EP to mix by the end of the year, and are saving the pennies for the subsequent mixdown.

    Yes, your memory serves you well about Cindi 500, although I'm her other half and she's down at her folks home on the beautiful Jeju Island for a few days...leaving me(Andi) to solo man Tele-Jag-Jazzmaster arsenal for the week. Someone's got to read the tasty posts here, I figure. ;)


    And yes, let's keep those Esquires rolling!

    Wow - that Shell Pink is gorgeous - Im building a Shell Pink Strat on a Black Limba body - should be niece. Mean time my other favorite color is Fiesta Red - Here's a MoTone Esquire in FR with matching mint green pickguare & my dig "rocket" control plate. The body is 1.5" one piece samp ash from Revelator and the big V neck is from Musikraft with an aged back. Done Mare wound a custom "Tweed Monster" for this build - and it rocks!!!

    I'm doing another Esqire with an Alder body shot in two tone Nitro and really nice grain. Neck is maple/rosewood - 10" radius & 6105 frets & a bone nut. I'm running a Rio Grande "Dirty Harry" in the bridge and some volume and tone. This is going to be a beautifull guitar.

    Next I'm doing a Limba body shot in sonic blue nitro with a birdseye neck, w/Kingwood board and maybe a matching headstock - oh yeah - Fat ****ing Tone machines all.

    Here's mine... just waiting to be picked up at Rob DiStefano's place (can't hardly wait):

    It was a Squier CV Tele until the other day... now it's got a screaming HD S90 in the bridge! I can tell already (especially after Rob's feedback on the tone) that this is going to see a lot of play in & out of the house.

    Thanks so much for the compliment. It is my first build, and I was feeling a little "noobish" even putting it up.
