    Petillo Tele Style guitar made by my friend Dave Petillo to look like an old pirate ship / bar floor with a tribute on the neck plate to my favorite bar in Asbury Park, NJ The Wonder Bar.

    That is one sweet tele. Plus, having the compass ensures that you will never lose your bearings!
    Congrats!

    Wow man, that is one incredible looking guitar. I love everything about it. Fantastic looking hardware - love the compass - and the back strap work on the hs is awesome! Beautiful work all round. Congrats.

    Man, that headstock... what a great touch. The whole thing is a work of art, but that bit really stuck out.
