I had the pleasure of filming a demo for the Frank Brothers Guitar Company a couple of weeks ago. They're still putting together the full length...
I say anything sub 6.9 is light. 7 is medium. I won't buy a Tele unless it's under 6.75

That's easy, I only have two pedals.
1) TC Hall of Fame Reverb
2) J. Rockett .45 Cal
Quick and dirty tone demo. Amp is my Moratto Amos Shop Tweed Deluxe clone. Reverb via TC Hall of Fame pedal. Recorded with my iPhone.
I took a few more close up shots. My photography skills / the iPhone 6 I'm using don't do it justice, but here ya go...
P90s rule. The perfect compliment to a Tele for us Tele nuts.
Well... it's better than I could have ever imagined! Flawless build, tons of mojo, killer tone, and an incredibly fun experience from...
It was just a very dark piece of Rosewood to begin with. I've seen guys use fish glue, or stains, etc... but there is nothing...
Well, apparently the guitar is done!! The boys are holding back the pics, and will leave it up to my imagination until tomorrow....
I like the Thinline. I'll pass on the Tele/Strat/Paul love child.
Tim is finishing the assembly today. She'll be set up on D'Addario NYXL 11-49. We'll start with the standard 500k pots, and .022uf...
Yeah they don't mess around.
Thanks Merle!! :)

The holes for the pots & switch were drilled earlier this week. Tim filed the fret ends today, and will be assembling the guitar over...
I sifted thru the pile of tort to find a dark, uniform piece for the guard. Should look great!
Hey Mark, thanks for the compliments. I'm hoping...
Thanks JS! Yes the standard teardrop shaped guard, and it will be a nice piece of tortoise celluloid. You can see it in post #6, though it's not a...
Guitar has been polished, pickups have arrived from Wolfetone, we're getting real real close. I'm thinking black covers and black...
We're getting really close. Tim sprayed the colour coats on my guitar and here's what he had to say: "We mix our own white lacquer...
Nice find. With the original case, case candy, and guitar in such great shape, I'd say that you could probably get around 4 grand for it. Assuming...
I agree. That was their goal when designing the aesthetics of the guitar. They didn't want to copy any thing, but wanted to make a guitar that...
Lots of progress has been made since my last post. The guitar has been sanded, sealed, grain filled, and had the first couple base...
Yup. Tim and Nick did absolutely everything they could to get the price down. They'd like if everyone could afford to play one of their guitars,...
So long as you give them a heads up, they are always open to having visitors.
This guitar will start at $3100.
