    Hey

    I`m ready for a new project, and after seeing this picture I`m ready for a telemaster. I think the finish is charcoal frost metallic, allthough it`s a bit more green than lots of other guitars in CFM. I hope I can find this color somewhere.

    I`m not sure about the pickups; if I`m going for an esquire or regular telly.

    I just got all the parts for mine. Warmoth body (poplar) and neck (rosewood.) I'm going Olympic white, white 3 ply pickguard. As far as electronics, I'm going Esquire wiring (GFS Lil Puncher humbucker) with a 5 way super switch. It'll give me a lot of options, tone wise.

    Sounds cool. Be sure to post some pics of it. What about tortoise pickguard on the OW? :)

    I think I need one of those too. I bought a rosewood neck for one, then used it on another Tele. I want to do the Telemaster with a Bigsby.

    I was originally going to go Sonic Blue, so I got the 3 ply white. I'm wishing I had got the tortoise :(

    In the pic you posted, I think the guy photoshopped that black onto the original pic (the butterscotch blonde). Have you checked ReRanch for the charcoal color?

    Photoshopped? Wasn`t this a CS finish?

    I`ve contacted rothko and frost regarding mixing the color, but haven`t gotten any reply yet.

    Yeah, I might be wrong on the Photoshop thing. It will be cool to see how yours comes along.
