Hi, after reading many of the great comments here I decided to go ahead and have Bob build a Telecaster for me. I don’t have the guitar yet but it is finished and should be heading my way soon. Am definitely looking forward to its arrival and I love the pictures that Bob has sent me. It has a swamp ash body, quarter sawn roasted maple neck and Dimarzio black velvet pickups. Thanks for all of the great information here and special thanks to Larry G for answering some questions I sent his way.
