    Love em all!
    I am currently working on some very similiar teles.
    Half gaurd, half bridge. Nice and unique.
    I am using some 100yr old pine for my bodies.
    I like it a lot.
    What did you use to spray the necks? and that butterscotch? details man!

    Times are tough in Southern Ill....Good thang there are still some good ol'boyz with some good deals out thar........I splurged on some amber and clear nitro......some minwax stain.....I went slightly brighter and more yellow with the stain for a couple of reasons but mostly becuase I'm not covering the beauty mark....I wanted it to standout and for me this was the best way....once I shot the Nitro it darkened a shade which I hoped it would but I'm not to proud to say probally dumb Forset Gump luck.....I'm back to using Mohawk rattle cans for my necks.....I'm stuggling not to touch them at this point......but its hard and I believe they will turn out nice.Cure baby cure.....Mario and Tim from Guitar Mill are taking care of the other 2 bodies and I hope to start on those this week....No 3 way though...Vol. and Tone only.

    Great tones on the sound clip , especially the last one ! If I ever finish the five guitars that I am working on now I think I will have to build an Esquire next .

    Well Serial #001 started today.....I'm stoked and terrified all at once....This isn't for one of my family or close friend or for myself.....but its a go and I'm gonna do my best.

    Without being to goofey....I wanna say thanks to those Illinoyz Rice Boyz-Creston Lea-Arlo West...Creston and Rich/Chris for just going for it....not trying to build grandpappies tele or for the masses.......and Arlo West who a few years ago I saw on youtube playing a Pinebody guitar and ripping it up and opening my eyes about using pine.....

    So here we go......

    Love the way that grain chevrons together! Cool guitars, man! Keep it coming. I like the three different flavors on the Esquire theme.
