    Rockdog is a lady!!!! and I referred to her as Sir and Mate!:oops:

    I think that is the nicest guitar I have ever seen built on TDPRI. Just incredible attention to detail!

    It looks even better in the video when you get the perspective of it from a little further away. The crescent design just looks terrific. And that pickup sounds amazing.

    I agree. I've seen some amazing builds here but the detail on this one takes it.

    Hey Rockdog,

    It is a Zep demo year! Just a phenomenally designed and executed build! Really well done. Ausgezeichnet!

    the clean shop should've been your first clue. ;)

    rockdog: just gorgeous... and the guitar ain't bad either!

    after following your blackburst thread a while back, I knew how this was going to turn out. Excellent work.

    Yup, nothing better than a good Led Zep song :cool:
    I'm happy that I'm done with everything, the video was the worst part of the whole build I guess, but now I have time to take a look at all the other amazing Teles here.
    BTW, sorry Jimmy for the worst version ever of that great song :rolleyes:

    if you're going to build such stunning guitars and show them to guitar nuts, you should expect a little time for them to come back to their senses and notice how it sounds and such.

    your playing was great... and perfect choice to demo the stomp box!

    Wow, that is just stunning! What is that pedal? Looks like it was made to match it!
