    Bounds make the top look like it is even more flat and visually compresses the thickness of the body in a way that makes it the sexiest Teles imaginable to me. :D

    I was so close to keep an AO 60 in 3TS but the PU were way too dark :(

    Here's mine -- a TL62B tri-burst body with SD AlNiCo Pro pickups, black pickguard, 4-way switch, Glendale bridge plate, Callaham saddles and an American Deluxe maple neck. It's a keeper! :cool:

    OK, here's my second contribution: in the middle, AVRI '62. The neck is skinny, as I expected, but I think I'll manage. :)

    Everyone was so happy, they all rushed over to get in the photo. Looks like Easter's coming early this year.

    Now I just need a pudding-white / cream, like my old Thinline... I guess I could use my old photos... not quite the same, though... :lol:


    I know most guys hate pink, but this color I ended up with is really growing on me. I'd do it again on purpose (if I only knew how).

    Oh hell yeah! Sweet. Always wanted to try cocentric knobs. I bet there are some
    lovely tones to be had with individual volumes.

    The only bound Tele I have is the one I made,. I think it was the 2011 TDPRI build challenge.
    It is hollow like a thinline but without the F holes. 6.6 lbs
    I am sure y'all are tired of seeing it but...
