    It seems like most of the other kids will be bringing modified Quaker Oats 'drums', my little girl and I whipped this up. I'm letting her bring my Honeytone amp, and she's going to use the little copper pipe that is in the pic as a slide. I have it tuned to a perfect 5'th so she can make something more than noise. Does this qualify as a 'Tele'? :lol:

    I guess so.

    It looks like some kind of vintage Telephone,
    which is more or less what the Tele is named
    after.

    It's got a Tele PU. What else you want?

    I think the real question is " does it qualify as a child's project "?
    But it is way cute. Well done.

    I have to agree :/

    Not trying to sound arrogant, but when I was 10 I made an electromagnet with some wire, a nail, and a big 6v battery. My parents were clueless about it all and I did it all myself.

    Isn't that what school projects should be? I can understand helping the kid, but it almost looks like you maybe only had her do a few chores on the project.

    Not trying to sound harsh at all. It was just annoying when students would come it in with science projects that it was obvious they had their science-adept parents built 95% of it, and all the other kids' grades suffered because the teachers considered those as gold standards at a 100% grade.
