    (Thanks to Paul and the TDPRI prize draw)

    Gorgeous guitar but I really missed a neck pickup so I sold it on to another TDPRI'er...

    Dude, you basically built my dream la cab... The only thing I would do differently is do an Esquire wiring scheme. ARGH, I hafta stop being a bum and build one of these!

    This is my recently completed La Cabronita inspired partscaster. Alder body, Surf green nitro (rattle can), Squier CV50 neck, Swing'O pickups from 'The Creamery'. Absolutely love it, sounds fabulous and plays great.

    I'm usually not big on surf green, but this one's a match made in heaven. Great job!

    Here's my Cab clone I put together last year. No-name raw alder body (Reranch Surf Green Nitro), Gretsch Filtertrons, Strat Hard-tail Bridge, Fender Tuners, All Parts Vintage raw maple (ReRanch nitro tint & nitro topcoat). Was a lot of fun to build, and led to me just finishing up a Shoreline Gold Jazzmaster. I love seeing the great work everyone does!

    ADK Teleman you have a nice guitar...I think the freshly vacuumed carpet really sets up the guitar for success.
