another amber one I built last year... the River tele...
These two are homebrew bodies with Warmoth necks.

Man, you guys are posting some awesome guitars! Making me want to order mine RIGHT NOW!
Carved Archtop hollow:
My most recent build, first time mixing my own stain for the amber
American Professional Natural Ash
This is a Squier Affinity I rescued, prior owners had chopped out the bridge area to fit a humbucker or bass guitar pickup and used a screwdriver or something to do it. I inlaid maple and walnut strips and then did an antique finish over it all. It was originally black that had been sanded back to a rattle can battle ship gray with bad orange peel.
This one is made from reclaimed lumber, including a piece of walnut pulled off a shipping pallet. Hence the nail holes.
That's gorgeous. I would love a Thinline version of that with a neck humbucker. (I'm really jonesing for a Thinline)
Them's some beauties right there...
By the way, who makes the 1st one with the P-90? That looks bad to the bone.
Thank you! I have one more (a pine caster Esquire I made) but don’t have great pics of it.
That’s one I bought off of our good friend @Strange Ol' Man.
Pinecaster ESQUIRE? I wouldn't think they could take a bad photo.
Does the Strange play and sound as good as it looks?
Yup...a Pinesquire I guess!
And yes, the Strange is great. I saw it when he posted a pic, jokingly said in a comment that I had to own it...and he DM'd me to make an offer. So I did, and got it a few days later. I think with that guitar and another custom build, I did a 5-for-2 swap (5 cheaper but nice guitars sold to pay for 2 really, really nice guitars).
Ok I lied, I found a few. Not the best pics, but they show it finished and in the process of finishing.
It's the same image as in my moniker. 1982 "52 Reissue".
This came to me already stripped of its' butterscotch finish - poorly finished clear. However, the guitar had some stunning figure for ash. I sanded off old finish, applied Stewmac ash filler slightly tinted darker, sanded again, applied a light coat of Boiled Linseed Oil, then 3 coats of Stewmac rattle can lacquer.
My 2007 FSR
Natural finish + tort pickguard = two great tastes that taste great together!
Color photos just don't do the 140 year old Kirn grain justice! And that slightly mottled finish, that is REAL nitrocellulose.
