    Picked up a used set of tracks for my quad. Got them mounted today. A few minor modifications yet. Raises the bike up a bit. Slower, & rides a bit rougher, but should get me to the fishing hole. Scott

    Thinline Tele Build - how to maximize this flame maple top?

    Here is my flamed Tele. Used a black hand-rubbed dye, then sanded the middle back slightly to create a burst in the middle. Then clear nitrocellulose lacquer finish overtop. Scott

    Contoured tele build

    Yes, I also love the 4-way switching option on Tele. I did it to my Jazzmaster as well, but I have no Rythm circuit. Scott

    LP Special P90 Brotherhood Build

    Got together this evening to make it a playable axe. 99% done. Had to install nut. First sanded a bunch off the bottom & bring nut height down to correct height. String guitar, adjust bridge height, switch wires on pickup selector switch, so it coordinated with pickups properly. Still a...

    Flamed Walnut/cherrywood Thinline Tele-ish.

    Took it outside to get pics in some natural light. I also final sanded the body, & bolted the neck on. The cherrywood back has a nice contrast with the oiled neck. Scott
