    I have three electrics (out of my five) that are dead-heat tied for best guitar ever, plus one acoustic that's close. I'll spare you all those pics.

    Oh, OK, just one:

    Average but only cuz I'm average. In the right hands it could crumble Mount Olympus and deflower 1,000 virgins.

    And here I thought that you needed one with F-hole, and one without F-hole to make babies. How old fashioned of me :)

    chipbutty24 - that's a beautiful guitar. I really love the finish. I always wanted a double bound Tele but I wanted one with a maple neck. So here's mine:

    I'm not a green guitar guy per say, however, in Boston you could refer to yours as The Green Monstah ( NE folks will get the reference )

    Actually, I got an email from the folks that decide on "The Best Guitar Ever" and they assured me it was this one. I believe yours was runner-up. :D

    Rumour has it there's a humbucker under the pickguard and the little switch is a coil splitter for it. :D

    This if from before I started cutting my own stuff. The body is USACG from 2008, Neck was a beautiful 2007 Musikraft superflame 1pc maple that warped on me really bad (It was on my trusty 51 Esquire replica). This year I planed off the face so it was flat and installed a rosewood board. All is great again. It's a 1" fat U shape that's amazing.

    This is that neck 5 years ago...
