    What does it sound like?

    I have a Strat with an ebony board and there is definitely a sonic difference compared to maple or rosewood. It may not be evident to a listener in a blindfold test but after owning it for 27 years I sure am used to it's sonic signature.

    It looks like it's half solid and half liquid, like some form of matter sent back in time from the future! And I thought the rosewood tele was the coolest thing I ever saw until now!

    Thanks for the kind words folks. As for the tone, I admit my ear is not very sophisticated when it comes to electric guitars... I grew up playing pretty much only import strats and didn't even get a telecaster until a few years ago. It was an ash American Series (or was it still called an American Standard?) from about 2005 and absolutely fell in love with the design and tone. Every tele I've built since save one has had modern American tele pickups, electronics, and hardware, so they all pretty much just sound like teles to me. I've made them from korina and a few types of rosewood and to be honest I probably couldn't tell them apart tone-wise blindfolded on if my life depended on it.
