If you can get your hands on one of these Kirn Guitars, I'd recommend it. Here's mine made with 140+ year old Ponderosa Pine.
Thanks! The previous owner had switched the guard, it's actually black-red-black... Never seen one like it before. I bought a traditional pearloid to replace it with, but by the time the new pickguard had arrived I decided I really liked the b-r-b.
Previous owner also put a four-way switch in it, which is very tasty.
Didn't notice that. Mine was the pearloid for maybe 15 years, before I changed to black. Looks more down to business.
Closest to amber Tele I’ve got is my latest creation. Pallet wood sandwich body with a pine ply top, which was originally a shield. Merbau neck and fb. I reliced the bridge and she’s got knobs from an old guitar and vintage style klusons. Little pocket rocker that will forever be a 5 string. Excuse the missing high e atm, still dialing it all in and broke it the other day.
Back finish is walnut stain with oak stain over it, and top is just a natural fine buffing oil, which is also on back and sides.
@AlbertoMilanese two of my five teles are blondes, but I don't think that's what you're talking about when you say "amber." However, in the natural/amber category, I think this one of mine qualifies...
The wood for the top and back veneers is 84 year old Longleaf Pine, salvaged from our house fire in 2010. Here's what the planks looked like before shaped into a tele and finish applied...
And here it is in process...
My homebuilds, funny you ask. I only like natural and amber.
I paint/stain most of my builds... these 2 are close to natural...
Forgive my ignorance, but are those cracks? If so are they stable?
Did someone say amber?
My first partscaster:
Here’s my 50s road worn, stripped naked. Just Light oil finish.
Beautiful piece of wood.
Yep, resin filled cracks. Totally stable.
here in my rustic amber caster, it has japan pink paisley bridge pickup, greco excel neck pickup, thick plate japan bridge, and a awesome DC Kunckle in-betweener neck and a almost 1 piece pine body with a ash top, 6lb 2 oz
still tweaking it
Pine, with about 50 coats of Tru Oil.
...with Twisted Tele set of pickups, by the way.
