    Glendale volume/tone knobs
    Warmoth vintage tele body
    Warmoth total vintage neck, 7.25" radius, 59 round-back carve

    I'm absolutely LOVING this build, just can't put it down!!! The thin pickguard was warping a bit so I drilled the extra holes, nice and secure now. In the background, you can see a Gibson LP with a set of Lollar Charlie Christian Humbuckers (the bridge was custom built with a longer blade so it could also work with a Fender bridge position string spacing, a really nice option). The two acoustics were built by my brother.

    I have 2, both are still under construction. I hope it is okay to post new photos of then in January when they are "complete" (for now).

    I have a 5-string butterscotch blonde Affinity with a 2003 MIM Fender '72 Thinline RI neck and a sunburst I assembled from scratch. I have Zhangbuckers on the way, they will go in the Sunburst (Frank) and those pickups will go into the blonde (Karny) after I route for the Humbucker. I show most of the process of the Frank build in a thread here. http://www.tdpri.com/forum/other-t-...877-xmas-2013-sunburst-partscaster-build.html

    I have a feeling I am going to be working on the blonde for a while and will probably start upgrading parts on my Jazzmaster soon. TDPRI has given me some sort of guitar-building fever.

    A few 12's

    A few of my 12 strings. Metallic blue tele with texalium pickguard, blond standard design tele, kona stained strat, ivory white strat. Maple necks, some with rosewood fretboard, basswood bodies appx. 20% oversized from normal, pick ups wound a little hot to pick up the 12 string sound better.

    The body was bought off of eBay - solid mahogany of unknown origin. The neck was made by Ron of Mammoth Guitars in California. The parts I collected over the past year in dribs and drabs. I finished the body in Tru-Oil. Then Fred Evans of Tone Delivery Service put it all together and set it up. Sweet playing. Sweet sounding.

    Still super happy with this git after lots of gigs. I don't use neck pickups very frequently so I yanked it and put an esquire pickguard on it. Also, since I purposefully shot the finish really thin, I've already worn through where my arm rubs the edge. I didn't want to purposefully relic it, but I'm glad its wearing on its own.

    Here is some pictures for the Broadcaster Blackguard build I recently completed.

    I did not want a clone of a Broadcaster with this project so it is not totally period accurate. I wanted some modern stuff as well. So it has Callaham bridge with compensated saddles, MJT relic body and Musikraft neck with 9.5 radius and 6105 frets.
