Love it, especially the pick guard.

1-piece Cherrywood Tele body I built 1 1/2 years ago.
Gotta love a natural tele
Just realized I never posted mine in here. Here goes:
My Diegocaster (currently being refinished)
Currently in the midst of a refin:
Granville Prodigal Custom T-Style:
Recent whiteguard upgrade:
Here's a reverse Esquire I built for jazz:
As originally built:
Replaced Lollar El Rayo with a TV Jones T90:
This guitar is in the process of getting a facelift with black hardware (control plate, bridge) and cream colored knobs. Going to look swank when done.
A throw-together Esquire I built (now sold) with a factory-second ToneBomb pine body and an old neck I had (refinished...off the Diegocaster). This was my first attempt at a burned-wood finish. Came out pretty good.
This is one I picked up for about $125 off C-list. Upgraded the pickups to OC Duff Guardsman set (FANTASTIC pickups!), reversed the control plate and added a 4-way switch. Gave it to a buddy facing cancer surgery (he survived and is cancer free today, praise God!) for basal-cell ameloblastoma. They basically had to remove half his lower jaw and build a new jawbone from his fibula (non-weight-bearing leg bone). Yes...two simultaneous surgeries. They also had to graft in tissue and manually connect vasculature from his leg to his face. It worked! Though he has no teeth on that side and some hair grows inside his cheek. The guy is a survivor. I wanted to give him a little extra incentive to get better. He still has it, loves it and has played it in worship band on a few occasions. It's made of pine with a Douglas fir top...a little on the heavy side.
As purchased. It was a mess with a blade pickup, a strat pickup and 500k or 1 meg pots. WAAAAY too bright and sounded terrible.
After upgrades and modifications:

I love natural finish guitars.
I think this might be natural?
century old pine
Lately it appears that zombie threads are on the rise. (Pun intended, of course.) I guess if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
Some may recognize this one, and even remember the story. I've certainly posted about it before, but it definitely fits in this thread. I have two "Firecasters," teles built for me by Bob Logan out of lumber (Long Leaf Pine & Douglas Fir) salvaged from our house fire in 2010. My avatar pic shows them both. Firecaster I, the one on the left in the pic, was stained dark walnut to tie together the body core (Doug Fir) and the top (LLP). But Firecaster II is a natural finish, and so I'm posting it here.
One of the most beautiful natural-finish teles I’ve ever seen. Gorgeous.
Love the stories behind these (I’ve read the thread)!
Natural wood is my favourite finish. These are both Atlantic Cedar.
Hey I just got a 1968 Telecaster that I was told was a one owner and all original. I don’t even have it In my possession yet but I was hoping someone could tell me if Natural was an available finish in 1968?
Canadian alder stained and tru oiled, waiting for my new neck in the mail
This lovely thing is my friend John’s.
It’s a Warmoth Thinline body with a modified 80’s MIJ Fender Strat neck.
It bears a striking resemblance to my avatar guitar.
My friend is not bonding with it too well, so I may adopt it.
It sounds good and plays beautifully.
