    Cool! That looks great! Looks like Dave Davies Telecaster Elites from the 80's.

    What's a GB body?

    20X better than an LP, but I do like the tuneamatic bridge and stop bar no matter where it appears.

    I always wanted to invent a string through body that fed a "bar" that led to a tuneamatic bridge.

    Life happens, never got to it.

    I love that you kept it very straight forward, finish-wise. Very classy, and high end looking! I am a fan of HH Teles myself, I cannot lie.
    Nice work!

    Thanks, it was initially going to be a gold top but I ballsed the paint up the problem was the binding so I took it back to bare wood and shellac.

    To be honest I wanted to capture the sound of a Lester it is very much like a tele with a 4 way switch, the bridge is the one its not as aggressive as a Lester I am very pleased with the out come I should be up and running home recording soon and hopefully post.

    That's the first 2-humbucker tele that's ever looked good to me. I love the ones with a HB (full or mini) in the neck, but always hated the HH. Until now.

    P.S. The binding adds alot.

    Excellent. Although I might go with a deep Ferrari Red pick guard...

    Very nice!

    Reminds me of my M-80, but instead of a tele type body, mine is a strat type body with Lester style controls, bridge, and scale.
