My £150 Mahogany Monster!............
1995 CIJ Jerry Donahue.
Only got one Tele at the mo' - it's a partscaster toploader, being kept company by a '86 MIJ Strat.
Amazing!!! tell us more about her origins and her sound, please.

Sure thing........it is a 'Hodson TV Mahogany '.
I bought it mail order from a small shop because I had yet to experience the joys of 'tele-ness' and £149 seemed a ridiculously modest outlay to that end.
It is extremely well finished (as you can see) considering it is absolute bottom dollar and had no major setup issues out-of -the-box bar one slightly proud fret which I sorted.
I am not sure that the tone is particularly 'pure 'tele' as I have nothing to compare it with.......I would have JUMPED on a classic Vibe Custom if these had been out at the time.......but its AlNico pups make a glorious sound-bridge is punchy and clear, but the neck growls like a good'un!
I can only imagine that Mr Hodson had a batch of guitars made up in the Far East to his specs based on the great marques (but different enough not to be outright copies), and with his shop name on them since he sold out pretty quickly and there have not been any more to date.
He had lots of equally spanky looking strats, thinlines, LPs, Jazzmaster and PRS-alikes at the time and I also snagged this LP 'Custom' type for the same money...
This also plays well although its built-to-a-priceness is a little more obvious.
Still- A Double Bound Mahogany Telecaster-a-like and a Quilt-top LP Custom (-ish!) AND change out of £300 can't be too shabby.....I wonder how much the real deal would work out!!
PS>>>You cannot BEGIN to imagine how heavy that mahogany monster is!!
what a nice neck

I love surf and seafoam green. I have a hard time telling which it is from the pic. It appears to be seafoam - is that correct? I thinking of building one myself in either surf, seafoam or daphne blue.
I call her the Red Rider.
Surf green! Those are pretty much my favorite classic Fender colors too, along with fiesta red.
And my Bass too:
