    My first pine bodied tele. Fender doesn't make teles with fat rosewood fretboard necks
    so I had to do my own.

    Thanks. The color is kinda hard to capture in a photo. Looks different in different light conditions.

    Love it. The body color, roasted neck and pickguard choice go really well together. And I like the non-white fret markers. I've thought about a maple neck with non-black markers just for something a bit different.

    I hate to say it.... but I've seen ugly teles and I have a preference for maple fretboards on teles. This ain't one of them, though. It all just fits. Awesome!

    Had it made by Mike at Quickguards. Sent in my handcut original in white to use as a template.

    Lovely build. Really cohesive. Is that a type of greened ice blue finish?
