    I've been dinking around with this for months, with other things taking priority. But it's a Sapele chambered back/maple top, made the neck out of the same sapele board. Gretsch Filtertron pups. Target Coatings EM6000 water based finish. I'm having some pup alignment issues, so a new bridge is on order. But it plays and sounds very good!

    The back, i managed to get the Nitro to crack quite nice, i decided to drop the buckle rash for now. Oh and the bullet hole in the coin goes all the way tru the body of course.

    The volum button has a .45 ACP cartridge as the S1-switch button.

    I think it came out quite nice and the sound is awsome. Hope you guys like it.

    Hi Guys,

    I'm currently GASsing a Thinline Cabronita in sunburst and am thinking of swapping the black guard out for a pearloid/aged white or something else to lighten up the overall look, been searching in vain for an example where someone has done this either with any of the sunburst models.

    I found a plain white one in one post but no more ( TDPRI post : show up la-cabronita)

    (I know a huge chunk of the tone is in the legendary black guard, but I'll take the hit, one of my other teles will still have a black guard. ;))

    :)

    Its your one I meant from the post I linked - I'm red-green colour blind so it just kinda looks white-ish to me.

    I'm veering towards an aged white pearloid at the moment but not too sure. Also think a triple-ply Black/White/Black (like on the one in my avatar and your other two) would look nicer than the stock solid black one that comes on the cabronita

    It is a bad pic with the lighting. It actually is a lot more green than it looks. Check eBay the seller I got it from is aiguitars. They have a lot of different color options and they're only about $19 if I remember correctly. They don't advertise any pick guards with the neck pick up a notch in them but they will cut the notch at no additional charge and it's a perfect fit.

    Recently replaced the black guard for something a bit more distinctive. It's actually a 4-ply laminated piece that is WBW and black abalone, but I didn't like the white border reveal so I blacked it out with a permanent marker. Much easier on my eyes now, and I like the contrast.
