That one looks really cool.
After seeing GFS's new Gold Foil pickups, I'm going to go with three P90 sized pickups and a 6 position rotary switch.
My first guitar http://www.guitar-museum.com/guitar-103557-KEP-8T-My-first-Guitar-around-1967
my second was a Stratocaster that I really didn't want to sell but this kid was begging me for it and I guess when he went to $900 I said ok. I think it was a good price to get in the 90s for a beat up strat.
Cool! I did not know GFS was selling "goldfoils". I may have to check them out! Anybody try them?
...Just found this thread and checked out all the KQQL cheesy guits!... Here's my contribution...
a "65 Teisco Delrey painted to match my buddies '56 Chevy... and my '60s Teisco Decca with gold foils that I got from the Squier forum..
I have 2 beltone amps created by tiesco and a friend gave me the matching beltone guitar the curly cable is from the late 60s ( and glows in the dark)
This proves it cheese does get better with age
Here's my quite rare mid 60's kent copa 632 (made by guyatone). You will find a lot of 500 series copas but I haven't seen another one of these. Sounds killer , solid mahogany body and in great condition. The only thing that keeps me from gigging with it is the complication of 3 switches, 3 volume knobs and 3 tone knobs.
A new fellow on here that goes by Weldaar just sent me a dismantled Stadco Sound Master. Should be a great project when it arrives. Hopefully it'll come together looking like this:
And here are some before pics...
I bought one of these for my first electric guitar, before I knew how crappy the bridge was, how microphonic the PU was, etc.
And then I sold it for pocket change before I realized how cool it was.
Yah, boy! Look at that tailpiece and the beautiful, intricate hand-engraving on the pick guard. How could you let it go?
My second guitar was a Teisco from walmart. Bought it with money from my first job as a car hop at the local A&W. Had it for 30 years. It went away when I finally got married in my mid 40's and thinned out the flock.
I currently have an old MIJ no name Jazz Bass copy. No pics. It looks like a Jazz Bass copy.
bparnell57 - could you trace that pickguard? My Zenon looks very similar to that and I like the looks of that guard.
I should be getting the package today, so if I get it when I get home I'll go ahead and send you either a high contrast straight on pic with dimensions or make a tracing with dimensions. I could even mail you a paper tracing if you need one. PM me later.
I've had my fair share. This is to just show a few:
1. El Degas Les Paul Recording - one of the truest copies I've ever seen of the original. Cool guitar!
2. Mann Howard Roberts Copy - just stunningly beautiful guitar. I miss her sometimes, late at night
3. Aria Diamond - this guitar looks cool, and the pickups sound like all your favorite electric blues artists!
4. Electra Phoenix Bass - yep. Just crazy.
Here you go guys, a nice straight on pic like I promised.

And after a good half hour, here's my progress on the project. I took out the lifting frets, put it back together, and put in Strat tuner bushings. All I have to do is put in tuners with their new to be drilled mounting holes, strings, and play it like mad as a sweet 3 pickup slide guitar or low action lap steel.
Oh, and here's the guitar so far.
