    Sonic Blue and a rosewood board make a beauty of a combination! Nice!

    Holy… I don’t know which I like more between this set and the set of Olympic white tele & strat. Wonderful!

    What's that guitar at the top? I don't recognise that, you know the one above the sublime Telecaster .....

    Thanks. It’s a build I did. Link to the thread about it below where I go into more detail than you likely want!

    The Tele is a build too. Pine relic body I found on eBay. All the rest are Fender parts. That Tele sounds so good... It has Custom 62 bridge pickup with a Pure Vintage 64 neck. It’s a top combo I’ve used twice now.

    Cool. How do you balance the humbucker neck with single coil bridge tonally and with volume?

    I don't.

    I just wired the humbucker (backwards) in there with the existing pots and cap - not as a deliberate act, but because I don't know what I'm doing when it comes to wiring.

    The pickups are both quite bright (Toneriders) and the bridge is very hot. The bucker is ever so slightly louder than the bridge, but not so that it's a problem.

    It's a great-sounding guitar. But that's more down to accident that design.

    I love those guitars! I'd like very much to have a Tele exactly like that one: nitro sonic blue light relic, with a rosewood fretboard on a traditional-style 21-fret neck.

    Too many. Really.

    I do rotate them and I play a lot but I’m out of home space. I usually have about 20 out ready to play.

    Building was great fun but I’ve stopped.
