    TWO new tele builds that I could not have done without the finishing help of two fantastic fellow TDPRI members.

    Steve Dikkers (Buckocaster on the TDPRI) bound and BEAUTIFULLY blue sparkled a body and matching peghead.

    Also, Mark Moore did a very nice Aged (not relic'd , just aged toner) pink paisley. Gold toned aged pink, with a non faded pink under the pickguard, similar to the '68 Fenders.

    I'm thrilled with these two new teles of mine.

    Here is a closer pic of the Paisley, and the Blue which is HARD to photograph. It has about 5% Holoflake, so it has some wild color sparkling.

    I'm no fan of paisley (or sparkle, for that matter), but those are some fine looking guitars.

    Very nice. Best looking Paisley I've seen in awhile.
    You can't hide with those two.

    Success!!

    But along with success comes great responsibility.

    I'm trying to remember when I played well enough, to be seen playing a guitar that put the spotlight on a guy like that.


    Anyway, congrats!!

    When a light hits the blue 1, no one could see my face anyway, it is like looking into a blue sun. So, it takes away a little of pressure to play outstanding licks
