I've got a Jensen Tornado (neo) speaker and it would...

That, a rewiring, and a decent Tele are all you need to join the Esquire club.

Some kind of "Teak Oil" on it which is probably mostly BLO.
Zenon pickups on a GF factory clearance body:
Reflective gold pick-guard might have been a little over-the-top.
I found a "scratch and dent" Quilter 101 Mini Reverb on Reverb for under $300 so I took a chance. The 5E2 TV front cabinet is from another...
It was actually a "thin-line" —hollow inside—weighing about 4 pounds.
Alamo Fiesta, single pickup. I traded it for a Vox Stroller.
It worked, sort of:
