    No, it was made by a well known Finnish luthier for me. A down scaled firebird with a fixed strat-type bridge and only the volume pot.

    That's Doug Kauer of Kauer Guitars. Before he developed his own stuff he was the man to know for Firebirds.

    his nickname is dougk on TGP and ReRanch.

    But it is hard to find any plans or templates for it....

    WOW, Marc... that Tele-Bird is gorgeous! With a mini-HB in the neck you truly would have the best of both worlds...

    Hmmm.... seriously desireous thoughts here....

    You can find him on the mylespaul forum too in the luthier's corner. He goes by dougk there too.

    That's the guy I was trying to think of in my earlier post. He is worth getting ahold of if you want to make one of these.
