    Mine's not one of these incredible originals people are posting, wow some amazing stuff.
    I built my from some pine shipping crates that I scavenged from work. Some rosewood and maple from a local hardwoods supplier and used re-ranch BSB to give it that color. Bakalite pickguard for that vintage vibe. Fender American Standard PUPs, Wilkenson Bridge w/ compensated saddles. My first scratch build and I love how it turned out.

    And here's what you get:

    Here is my '54 BGBS. Bought it in the early '80s. I switched the control plate around Gatton style. the neck was refretted before I bought it. PUs are original. I replaced the saddles and the tuners and thats about it.

    My Fender FSR Telecaster BSBG has that annoying ping on the G string as well. Looking closely at the nut, it looks like some moron set the (nut slot cutting) machine to cut the slot on the G string the same specs as the B string........Idiot!!! This causes the nut slot to pinch the G string, creating that annoying harmonic ping when that string is struck by your pick. Wonder if Fender is going to cover the repairs on the incorrectly cut nuts, under the warranty?

    From 5 feet away I'll bet it still looks like a real '52 Butterscotch Tele.

    2008 CS Closet Classic, it's "nocaster blonde" and looks much more butterscotch-y in real life - these cell pics just don't do it justice.
