    Just did some minor mods to my tele:

    [​IMG]


    Kinda a tribute to one of my favourite country guitar players...with a little bit of "individuality" thrown in! I think it looks great!

    Aside from cosmetics, it has a set of Vineham Blues Specials in it!

    Opinions?

    I like it. Great blend... Clarence-ish. Clarice perhaps?

    I like tributes and such a lot; many of us express our appreciation for those who've influenced us in this way. I'm definitely one for that type of thing =]

    I love relics, own a few, I like this with the exception of two items (if I may, since you asked): 1) I don't like the "turbo" emblem. 2) Everything is "too straight" and neat for a relic. Nice job though

    I like it, but think a black pickguard would give the stickers & Turbo a nicer field to play on. The stickers are kinda shy next to that 'guard.

    It's pretty cool, really.

    I like it.

    Reminds me of Marty Stuart's Tele formerly owned by Clarence White.

    We all know that Clarence was great, and Marty is a pretty great Tele player himself.

    Needs a black 1 ply black/parchment (your choice) pickguard, but yeah, I see where you are going with it.

    Thanks everyone...while lurking around on the net today I stumbled onto Hipshot B Benders. They look pretty cool....so as soon as I get the funds I'm ordering one. Now I just gotta figure out how to age it.....

    Thank you ! It's a 2009 Roadworn Tele.

    And yes....the resemblance to Clarence is intentional!
