    Wow, that's a really cool guitar... wonder how it will sound especially in the neck position!

    Thanks guys. I'm REALLY happy with how this one turned out. The Fralin works well with the Seth - nice balance. I like the locking Klusons too - vintage looks but more stable tuning. I'm strongly considering keeping this one. It's a killer Tele !

    Not too over the top as most home relics.
    Very tasteful and authentic feel to your work.
    Nice job.
    (now may I have it?)
