    Wow, that is absolutely gorgeous.
    Looks like it should be pretty light weight too.

    Rob, did you do that burst finish too? Really dig the touch on the headstock.
    I just might have to borrow that for my Strat build.

    Love the gold mounting plate on the neck pup.
    Those are your pups right?

    Great job on the "wood grain to burst" finish. All that quilted maple shines through.
    On the neck too. Just awesome!

    It's art.

    all the wood finish was done by master airbrush artist gerd dagne - his work is truly awesome.

    this tele looks the way it looks mainly due to the airbrush artist. if you look real careful inside the lower bout 'f' hole, you can see a bit of the faux qood grain he airbrushed onto the inside of the rear cover. that's dedicated detail.

    then there's that really super figured wood (warmouth). and, of course, the gold bling. :cool:

    cavalier pickups - bakersfield "pushed" lion bridge and lion king neck. 4-way switch, vintage bone nut, staggered gotoh deluxe tuners, gotoh compensated bridged.

    all killer, no filler. :D
