    Bucko - that is a simply UNBELIEVABLE looking Tele!!! All put together like that, it looks ten times better than the body by itself did. Awesome job!

    It is amazing that you not only saved that guitar, Bucko, but it looks great; unique, there's not another in the world that's like it.

    Thanks kids.

    You know, my ego thrives on your comments. ;)

    So you want some more?

    How about some 100% PURE Sparklecaster porn?

    There's something about that combination of sparkles and binding that reached out and grabbed my throat one day.

    Buck and Don...I can't thank you enough!

    Now...

    now, I have to do something about this!

    [​IMG]

    I'm going to try to reclaim at least a part of my life for a few weeks.

    Of course, the garage, where the wood is cut and routed looks much, much, much worse. I may have to call in a professional for that!

    :eek:

    Great collection!!!

    Whats the use in cleaning up, when you know it will not be long until you begin another project and get wood shavings everywhere again???

    hehe

    Got to clean up!

    This whole thing has gotten the better of me. :(

    This is the floor under my table saw...which this summer has really been nothing more than a router table/oscillating drum sander support.

    It's hard to even get the Race NEON in it's stall...and when I do, there isn't much room to walk...

    [​IMG]

    besides, I think I have enough bodies cut out to keep me busy for a while.

    [​IMG]

    Looks like about 2 days worth of cleaning!

    Looks like you need a full dumpster, wheel barrow, snow shovel and push-broom. Don't forget to wear a dust mask!;)

    WOW! look at all those bodies! Hummmm, I wonder what's coming up next?
    I can't wait!

    Do you dream in sparkles yet?:cool:

    Very inspiring indeed.

    I showed your working place to my wife to justify the disorder in mine :lol:

    The positive side is that she told me that I was missing a sparkle Tele in my collection...

    Indeed :twisted:
