    Hank Penny/Billy Shoemaker Tele

    In the 2007 July issue of Vintage Guitar, there was a mid-50's tele that Leo built for Hank Penny. Leo actually built him two. One was shell pink and the other was a dark copper penny color. Both had a forearm relief and in that respect they were the first of their kind and unique. By...

    Custom shop '52 RI rosewood neck

    Do you guys remember the Custom Shop '52 RI with the solid rosewood neck? I can't find that thread no matter how I search. That guitar was stunning and I want to try to build one like it using a Baja and a Warmoth neck. If you remember who owned that it would be a great help!

    I was pretty shocked to learn that the first electric solid body guitar was the Slingerland Songster, which pre-dated the Log and the Telecaster by more than a decade. This photo is from the Smithsonian's collection. I was...

    Possible Ground Issue - Baja Static

    :?:I have a brand new Baja (blonde) that I really like. I don't want to take it back so I'll hunt this problem down. Sometimes I get a static crackle when I touch the strings with the side of my pick hand. It is a little more pronounced when I have a Tubescreamer in the signal chain. It is...

    NGD - Baja Tele

    I took possession of my new Baja Blonde last night. Got it out of the box at the store and tried it with the Tiny Terror and was really happy. Still needs a bit more set up and some better strings, but this thing is fantastic so far. I really like the neck. Love the feel of it...

    I'm getting a highway 1 in a couple days. It has a couple chips in the finish, sort of like this. . . well, exactly like this. Do you guys think that if I drop fill those chips with clear nitro or hit it with a light coat of clear nitro that it will melt those chips smooth? I could...

    Bare Knuckle Pickup Question.

    I'm getting ready to try some Bare Knuckle Pickups in my Highway 1 Tele. I also plan on doing a four way switch and some brass saddles at the same time. I've got an e-mail into their customer service, but it is probably pretty late in jolly old England, and I was wanting some feed back from...
