    Well, I have been building my own guitars for almost 20 years and I'd say that I got exactly right with THIS one.

    The right weight, the right feel.

    25.5 scale length, twin humbuckers, three barrel chopped off tele bridge, master volume and tone, SG shape Pine body.

    Yeahh, but the same could be said for a lot of the home-built guitars as well. It's just for fun. ;) I chose a Jaguar because quite frankly if I were to make a "Signature" Telecaster, it would just be the basic Telecaster I have now... and I chose all those pickups and switching options because why the hell not? I've already gone the simple route with a single-pickup/one knob guitar- I like knobs and switches!

    Mine would be a Ron Kirn Barncaster. I can't see anything that I would change on that!

    Mine would probably look like a cross between a lawn dart and 58' Buick.

    I don't have a long list of preferred hardware or electronics because I'm not a good enough player to know the difference unless something is glaringly bad.

    The guitar I'm playing in my avatar. It's a Don Grosh ElectraJet Standard in Foam Green (although it came out a little more "Kelly" green than your typical Foam Green), made a few years ago when the "suede" finish was standard (they've since gone to a gloss lacquer finish on the EJS). The only difference from stock are the metal dome knobs instead of the usual speed knobs, which I find too slippery. It has two P-90-type pickups that are incredible.

    I ordered the guitar from the now-defunct G Guitars and Grosh was basically putting it together from the time I told G Guitars I was looking for one in Foam Green and the few weeks later when they delivered it. G Guitars asked Grosh to paint the guitar in Foam Green and told me that if I didn't like the guitar they would just sell it in the store...no obligation.

    It was perfect in every way except I found the frets to be a little taller than what I would consider ideal. After a few years of gigging it needed a level and crown, which took the height of the frets down a little. Now it's absolutely, utterly, completely perfect. Plays, sounds and feels like a dream.

    I like it! That EletraJet is right up my alley too.

    I don't expect to ever have a signature model, but if I did it would be a Fireglo Ric 381/12 with a 1.75" neck width at the nut. Beautiful in sound, look and feel.
