Here's a work in progress, mocked up with spare parts so I could see kinda what it will look like.

Right now the finish is curing. A couple more weeks and it's go time.

From top to bottom:
1. '52 reissue. Remember when Fender would still sell "genuine replacement" necks & bodies? This was built by Darren Riley. Lindy Fralin pickups.

2. CIJ BlueFlower Tele. Glendale compensated brass saddles.

3. Body bought from some kid on ebay, fattest neck ever from All Parts (I don't like a naked headstock so I took a Fender decal, cut it up and switched the d and n... it's a Fedner!), Wilkinson bridge, Seymour Duncan Hot For Tele pickups. Built by Darren Riley.

4. '94 CIJ Tele with moto binding. Changed pickguard from moto white, scrapped out gold hardware and 6 saddle bridge for Fender USA parts, Texas Specials.

All have the reversed controls ala Bill Kirchen.

well, here's mine...94 MIM Tele Special. Replaced the bridge SC with a Seymour Duncan Hotrail Humbucker. (Gonna replace the neck HB with a DiMarzio Evolution.... This was my first REAL guitar. (before this one i had a Peavey Predator, and an Ibanez EX starter guitar). Anyway, the Tele smokes anything i have played since then.
