From the documentary on Ike White...something homemade?
You couldn't even call it a tele. It's something with a tele neck.
Dunno, that body looks a bit wee for a Coronado. Reckon some carpentry been going down.
Methinks a Tele neck doth not a Telecaster make.
Is that a painting for a pickguard?
I love mutt guitars.
Definitely not a Coronado. They had much longer f holes than this guitar has. Probably some Japanese import bolt on hollowbody with a Tele neck.
As long as the body is comfortable to hold and the tone is good, I would be happy with most any body with a Tele or Strat style/scale neck. Whatever it is, it's a cool guitar.i
Looks cool, but not a tele.
a little googeling and:
Man - this guys story is just sad!
BTW - I have a friend that has an old Gold Top with a Strat neck on it. The original neck got broken, and he (as a teenager), carved it out, drilled it, and bolted on this Strat neck he had laying around. Anything's possible with the right tools.
He most likely had both guitars in his arsenal, liked features from both and decided to make one guitar that he really liked. People (including myself) do that all the time, albeit not from two completely different designs. I think it looks pretty cool actually. However, let the music do the talking.
Forget the guitar Ike has a story:
Ike was an experimenter with all of his equipment, so this is not really a surprise. I would be more surprised to see him with a factory-stock model, unless it was one of his Strats.
I guess I agree with that. Besides, in my emailbox this morning I find this image of a Tele:
What does make a Tele a Tele? (And how many threads are there already on this topic? I'll just run along now.)
Tele shaped body is a prerequisite for me.
I used to have an Antoria Soundmaster semi acoustic years ago. It had a bolt on neck and had a body with the control plate in that location.
So that could be a possibility.......
