    It is a Mighty Mite body and neck, and it went together fine. The color is '56 Ford Foam Green, which is Seafoam Green. It comes up as a Fender guitar color in Dupont. I shot it in Chromabase using acetone instead of basemaker, then shot nitro over it. Worked great. The color almost glows in the dark.

    The Nashville was a MM body as well, with a Warmoth neck. It WAS off and required some tinkering and creativity to get it together. Seems to be some inconsistency.

    This '72 Thinline looks great, Johnny, with the hard to find flamed swamp ash!

    Not new, but an evolution of my partscaster...
    [​IMG]
    I decided that I really didn't like the Bigsby on my #1 (see my post about 1 page up), so I pulled it back off. But this one is really working for me in combo with the Lil '59 / P-90.

    I swear I've seen that Lil '59 / P-90 / Bigsby combo before...

    This one (my dad's) has a 50's Bigsby and a 60's P-90:

    My first and only (for now) Tele is a copy, the brand is "Austin" and I recently replaced the pickgaurd and chopped the headstock to give it a more tele look. I also added my own headstock logo. This is my first guitar mod and I am kinda proud of it. I am thinking new pups and gold hardware! Or just maybe I'll just get a mim tele or a squire.

    Here's my '73

    picked this up on a trade recently. Still needs a boatload of work. ordered new 3 posi bridge w/compensated saddle, new Bridge P.U.
    I dropped a strat pickup into the neck position and honestly, I love it. Real deep and clear and surprisingly soft feeling.

    here she comes...

    She's a bit robust with her 4.6 kg (10.14 lbs) of total weight but well balanced and easy playable (C neck 12" radius). Tonerider vintage plus. Solid maple everywhere.

    here you can find the build thread
