Been building this one for about 3 months (thread over in the DIY section). This is my first Tele.. Got strings on it and set up for the very first time today so it's finally a playable guitar. Sounds great through my Princeton. Will try to record some clips once I have it dialed in.

Specs:
Body made and finished by me from Swamp Ash
Neck from Warmoth
-roasted maple
-pau ferrou fretboard
-SS jumbo frets
-slim neck profile
-compound fb radius 10-16"
-Tusq nut
Tuners Gotoh
Bridge Gotoh modern
Pickups Fralin split blade, high output
Pots, CTS vol 250k, tone 500k, cap orange drop .047uf
Switch CRL 3 position.
Finish nitrocellulose, body gloss, neck satin.
Strings dunlop 10s (Billy Gibbons, used to be called Mexican Lottery Brand)
Straplocks, Dunloo

Enough talk, here are some pics:

That's a great looking guitar, congratulations!

The neck pu rails look GREAT with the pickguard, they're all wiggly too :)
They sound great too :)

The pickguard was kind of the inspiration for the whole guitar. When I saw the material, it reminded me if the ocean, and then at the beach, I saw a faded out, weather bleached sign. The two images came together in my head and I had a picture of what I could do with a Tele build.

Okay, quick vid on the bridge pickup. Can't push the amp as hard as I would like at home (it'd probably overload the phone mic anway) so not as chunky as stage volume. But sure sounds like a Tele.
