Incredible! Do you sell any of your bodies or necks?
That is one classy guitar. Congrats.

I still want to hear it.
WOAH! That's just awesome. I'd love to hear it in action!
Nope. Warmoth does a better job than I could ever do and probably much cheaper than I could too. I build a guitar like this from time to time strictly for kicks; they are few and far between and I have no interest in making copies... believe me, carving a neck out of ebony did not leave me with the desire to do it again any time soon.

I have seen alot of freaking Teles.
This one is either the best or in the top 3 best I have ever seen.
I'm normally not a big fan of fancy grain on Teles, but...that is a stunner.
Aside from the black knobs, I love it. It looks great.
Wow, she's a stunner!!!!
That is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.
That guitar is... AMAZING!!! Awesome I can't stop looking at it!!!
Un-freaking-believably gorgeous! Stripe-tastic!
It's worth at least a five, but I'd prob'ly've lost my head and give up a twenty.
Then again, we don't have dollar bills here.
Absolutely. One of the nicest looking Teles I have ever seen. Twist your arm around to behind you, yes...that's it, now pat yourself on the back.
Best looking Tele I've seen - period.
Wow, that is pretty. I love the Macassar Ebony. I know Taylor uses it as a custom option for the back and sides of some acoustic guitars.
Gorgeous tele! You did a great job with that exotic wood! I'm sure every board look like that because that's the charateristic of this particular ebony. The trees grow naturally only in a remote area in Sulawesi (Celebes) island of Indonesia with nearest town/port named Macassar. My supplier who lives in the area offered me a blank Macassar ebony, enough for one piece tele body, but my luthier has been not in the mood to work with that wood. It's painful.
To be correct, it's all ebony, not solid ebony. Imagine what that would weigh!
Words to describe how beautiful it is fall short.
One of the most beautiful guitars I've ever seen.
Indeed, if it were solid, just the routed body - with no neck, hardware, tuners, or anything - would be right at 10 lbs.
