    Just picked up my fun new project from the pinstriper.

    It's a USACG body and neck. Shell pink and I wanted a '50s vibe (well, as '50s as you can get with contours on a Tele! :D)

    The pickguard isn't permanent. I'm waiting for my single ply white guard to arrive.

    Sexy little spank plank I think. :D

    I like it.

    I used to pinstripe for a living.

    Sounds really great.....I opted for the Seymour Duncan Antiquity pickups (the original '50s style) and it's everything you want from a great '50s Tele. I've yet to play Duncan Antiquities that I don't like!

    You have the look. You have the sound. Now all you need is to find a soda shop to gig it in. I have the feeling that beauty would get along with some vinyl and Formica furnishings. I guess she really deserves to be driven to the gig in a Caddie or a nice '57 too. Congrats on a real sweet guitar.
