    I can make Roy sound just like me on my CV!

    I think 45k is a bit much for the same outcome! :oops:

    I'm thinking Aged Cherry Burst tonight, for some reason... but all the Teles are best-looking, really.

    If the thread meant “Anyone’s best looking Tele” then I’d vote for an early 80’s “Maui Blue” Tele like this:

    If you meant MY best looking Tele, then it’s this one ( if I ever get time to finish it)

    Put that top on a 'hog body w/'hog neck and I might be tempted to off my LP.

    That's a really sweet Tele!

    Congrats and HNGD!

    It’s a Mastery bridge. The guy I bought it from did all the work. He did a great job.

    So far, I’d say it’s this one. I really like the quilted maple.

    My ol’ beast.
    The neck is a heavily modded 1984 Philip Kubicki Strat neck.
    It headstock was re-cut to Tele shape, and it’s ebony fretboard was replaced with rosewood.
    The 1 piece Swamp Ash body was made by Bill Giebitz in 1988.
    It’s had more repairs and mods than you’d believe.
    It’s sorta beautiful.
    Someday I’m going to learn how to play it!
