    One pickup barnwood slab Tele. Body is pine. Neck is a Warmoth, one piece, roasted maple with Clapton profile. Strap is a belt my brother made for me back in the mid 70's. Few inches to short to wear these days...

    Awesome! Really love the way you captured that rustic barn wood look. How do you like the reversed pickup? Speaking of which, what did you use?

    I like that it takes a litte edge off the twang. Not sure what make it is. Purchased off Ebay. Has cloth pushback wiring. Sounds good to me. Currently set up for slide.

    Heck yeah - that looks great!
    With wood that old, is it any lighter?

    She’s purty, in an ugly sort of way.
    Love the Japanese style patch on the back!

    It was a little lighter but don't recall exactly what the body weighed. Total weight is just over 6 lbs.

    Thanks all. I'm just an amature player. Would very much like to get someone who knows there way around a Tele to give feedback.
