    Hey, here's my work in progress.
    It's an H.S.Anderson mad cat. Handbuilt in Japan in the 70s. The body and neck are maple.
    They started to build these in 1973. About 500 guitars were made in the 70s.
    The first ones were without serialnumbers. Later on they stamped the serialnumber on the back of the peghead.
    I guess mine is one of the early ones made, since there is no number on the guitar. I've checked it thoroughly.

    I've owned this guitar over 25 years. Played it alot in the 90s. It has lost some of the original parts.
    It weighs 3,7 kg as seen in the pictures.
    Since it's not in original condition anymore I feel free to customize it a little.

    I have the original leopard pickguard and the hardware minus the tuners.No original pick ups, either.
    I'm going to route the body and the pickguard so, that I can put a Lollar Charlie Christian pick up in the neck cavity.
    Bigsby B-16 would be nice, too.

    You have the original celluloid pg to this? I wouldn't route it. These are becoming more valuable now.
    I happen to have undrilled sets of these celluloid PG's that I had cnc'd.

    I can't believe I've never seen this thread.

    Yes I have the pickguard and the smaller part surrounding the bridge. They are both quite brittle so I've tucked them safely away into a cardboard box. Guess I better leave them be.

    Does my mutt qualify? Cobbled this together several years back for cheap, the pickups cost more than the body and neck. Has a set of early issued Nocaster pickups, premium pots, 4 way switch. 3 piece solid ash body. 1 piece maple neck with very nice frets, the ends are cut back and filled in on the side so you can't see them or feel them, no sprouting here. The gold has tarnished pretty bad, but that's ok, I like the worn look.

    This began it's life as a Squier Classic Vibe Custom. I added a MIM classic 50s neck, cts pots, crl switch, electrosocket, Duesenberg switch tip, round top barrel knobs, OV 62 bridge pickup, Seymour Duncan Firebird neck, Decoboom streamline pickguard, and I have a set of Rutters compensated brass with aluminum E/A saddles on the way. This thing plays and sounds great. I'm finally in the club.

    After regretfully selling my American Designer Edition Tele in 2010, I have renewed my DBTOC membership with this '62 Custom Telecaster!

    Indeed so, thank you. That’s what I think as well. Nothing more needed...
