    Just finished my telecaster replica made of Musikraft parts. Finished and aged by Mark Jenny.

    I was going for a 60's style tele, but with a blend of old and modern specs like a fat U shape neck profile (U shape 0.90 - 0.90") with a 10" fretboard.
    It's equipped with a SD Broadcaster in the bridge and a 'Jazz in the neck position. 250k potensiometers, so the neck humbucker is a lot darker than your regular humbucker (and a lot darker than expected - but I think it's sound awesome).

    I think that's the nicest looking Tele I've seen on this forum (and I'm a maple neck fan). Everything ties together visually and looks great. I love the threaded saddles and the mint guard against the white. From the photos I've seen Jenny does the most tasteful aging and relicing.

    Man, experience pays off. He did a great forearm wear.

    I've noticed that some jobs put the forearm wear closer to the waist of the body. I've never been able to figure out how that wear was supposed to have gotten there unless the guitar is slung down at the knees and the wrist was supposed to have rubbed the body on that area. I often see relic jobs with other wear marks in odd places that don't correspond to typical playing postures, etc.

    Seems to me that taping sandpaper to yourself and playing the guitar should wear it pretty naturally. :lol:

    Nicely done! This is my favorite color combo. Take a look at Mrgearhead.com There is a diagram for a Fat Tele showing how you can use 500K pots and resist the bridge pup. It wil open up the humbucker. The bridge will be a bit more open as well so you will find the need for the tone control. Try a .068 cap instead of the .047. This may help a bit as well.

    I typed my first post in this thread around 8am EST before I had my coffee. 14hrs later I still think that color scheme is incredible. My opinion hasn't changed.

    Thanks guys. I still love the color combo (and my wife does too (to be honest, she wants a kitchen with the same color combo)).
