Okay, thought I'd try something that I haven't seen before, well of course the shape is pure Tele but I made the body out of solid mahogany. The neck is also mahogany but the fretboard is maple. I like the slightly darker sound of the mahogany, but can't really get the precise tone of the wood because I used a cheap set of dual rails. Gonna order some push/pull pots, then we'll get a better idea using single coil mode.

Aside from folks who will tell you that most of what we hear on our solid body electric guitars IS the pickup, I will say I like my mahogany body too (and have never swapped pups)
:cool:

My first tele (July 2008) was a custom order, and my tone wood of choice was solid mahogany. I also opted for a P-90 in the neck position. The neck was amber tinted Birdseye maple. I chose gold hardware to complement the reddish brown hues of the mahogany. To be clear, the specs were my choices, but this is a Logan Custom guitar, made for me by Bob Logan.

BTW, @Ronnboy is your mahogacaster heavy? Mine weighs 9 lbs. 2 oz.

Looks great. Love the natural mahogany color and grain.
