    I've actually had this one since last fall, but haven't gotten around to do some photos until now. Based on a 54 tele, but with some modern upgrades.
    Musikraft V neck-super thin nitro finish
    USACG one piece body(not sure if its ash or pine-anyone?)-super thin nitro finish
    Closet classic style condition with some dings and light checking.
    Repro decal "aged" with amber nitro.
    Bakelite pickguard with clear nitro finish
    Glendale bridge, saddles, knobs, jack cup
    Seymour Duncan Antiquities signed by Seymour himself :)
    Just shy of 7 pounds.

    Badass! Tasteful job with the sticker (on the back of the guitar I mean). Classic looking teles should look classic with no stickers plastered on the front IMHO. Nicely done sir.

    I like it, great job. That neck looks real good, and I bet it plays nice too.

    It does play nice. I would prefer a little more girth, but it's definately more chuncky than a C shape neck.

    It looks great.

    That is ash. Why:

    1) Visually that's ash, cut and dried, and a pretty one. Pine doesn't look like that; and

    2) Tommy Rosamond does not do pine bodies insofar as I know. I would be shocked if he's done an about face on this.

    Thanks Boris, that's what I figured. I traded a mandolin for this one, so I didn't order the body.
