Phil - the challenge results only indicates the respect we already had! Congrats!!
This one needs to be in the Guitar Hall of Fame!
I'm glad this guitar got the recognition it deserved. Nice work... or rather, nice kwork.
Good on you Phil. A well deserved win for an individual and unique approach.
Great sounds from the beast, and the banjo tone was so realistic I was beginning to wonder if you didn't pull a swifty on that, but a man of your integrity wouldn't do that I'm sure.
Give Baaabara my best! DC
Good on ya, kwerk! I know you called this build a "toy" in another thread, but it was an absolutely perfect idea in this context; I mean something beyond merely brilliant. That is not an exaggeration, and that sort of thing doesn't come around all that often. Match it with your meticulous execution, and yes, this is a Hall of Famer.
I suspect you planned this all along
Hi Kwerk - Congratulations on a well deserved win and a great idea masterfully executed. Best wishes DS
Congrats Phil, outstanding! Your build went right under my radar till the first day of voting, just plum crazy man.
Well done Phil
Great idea and great execution.
Amazing build, it looks so wicked. Everything about it, truly inspired and quite humoruos as well. Outstanding!
Congrats on the win, Phil! And on a great build. Whether it's a wall-hanger or a player, it's going to get some double takes and start some conversations.
Just like last year's build was, it's in a case for a while so I don't have to look at it everyday! Eventually I'll get it out and do something with it.
Oh man, I've been playing the snot out of my Challenge Tele. I couldn't bear to put a new guitar in the closet. I've even dinged it already.
I tend to have a "I've been staring at that thing for so long I need a break from it'" kinda deal going. Besides, immediately after I finished the tele I had to get back to my brothers very late Christmas guitar,which is now done, save for needing the preamp replaced. It is, however wonderful to play. I'm having second thoughts. I wonder if he'd like a set of steak knives instead?
Absolutely fantastic build, Phil - from conception to completion nothing but awesomeness. The win was fully deserved.
Not been on this forum in a while, so I missed this. Damn man, that is awesome.
Go with the steak knives.
I tried to find the words to describe how I felt about this build but in all honesty it has left me kinda speechless. Leo Fender would have LOVED this guitar.
Congrats and well earned.
f a n t a s t i c !!!!!!!!!! i love it !
This thread is so crazy! I remember it likenit was yesterday.
Killer job, @kwerk
Curious about how the “finish” has held up over the last 6 1/2 years...
I couldn't tell you, sadly. I sold it about a month after the challenge ended. One day I'll reproduce it and have the photos hosted somewhere that doesn't behave like Photobucket.
