I have an ash body that reminded me of the grain on an AK47 stock so I decided I was going to build an AK themed tele. I ordered the remaining AK parts I need last night and will be spending some time trying to figure out what kind of pickups, bridge and such go on it. So far this is what it will feature. AK redish color stain A piece of an AK receiver as the control plate. Since there will be holes I will probably fashion a black plate under it so everything will be clean and hidden. 2 AK gas pistons for knobs AK trigger for selector switch -OR- an AK safety on a rotary switch, I will build both and see what happens A brown phenolic pickguard to match the bakelite style of old magazines and grips AK rear sling swivels and a genuine Russian strap for the strap. It's going to be a lot of work machining the parts to work as knobs and switches but I think it will turn out pretty awesome. I'll take some pics later today of what I already have and what is planned. I'd really like to figure out a way to make the rear sights into saddles but I think that might just be pushing it too far.
