No sir! I'd let you play it but she's not for sale.
Who needs 50 bucks, right?
You guys are being rough on the frankentele. Lol That guitar is kick ass and priceless in my book.
I TOTALLY believe it kicks ass. Your guitar is exactly what this thread is supposed to be about...not '52 relics.
My only qualifying entry.
What's the story on this peice of Eye Candy?
It’s really ugly but I want to play it loud. LOL. I agree it wins for ugly hands down though.
A few years ago, I decided to make a few guitars with the woodworking tools my pops left to me. I bought a few slices of Home Depot cedar (it was inexpensive) and gave it a shot. What you see is serial number 0001. Since it was made, it's been the test bed for numerous ideas, paintjobs, shenanigans. I decided to retire it and put it out to pasture - I gave it a final paintjob and some decent electronics. It now has a straight up wiring job (save a stray killswitch) with a Railhammer Huevos 90.
Since then, I've made and sold quite a few guitar bodies. It's really helped to offset the cost of treatment of GAS pains. It's also a nice bonus to be able to make anything I want, in whatever config I want.
It barely qualifies as a Tele, really, but it's what I have.
My Tele is not ugly. But I definitely Franken-f&*ked it, in a good way (Pay attention to the neck pick-up).
The Vox AC10 is completely UNDERRATED!! It's a great sounding amp and the digital reverb is pretty awesome too. Congrats!!
This is a 100 year old PINE body with a set of RIO GRANDE TELE PICKUPS and a special pick guard. This Tele is very light and acoustically very alive!
Plain vanilla looks pretty ratty but it sounds good, definitely a keeper, not so with the rest of them, they are already gone. Top one stays forever.
Here is my entry 73/75 Tele Custom aka "Flamecaster". It pretty stupid looking, but it plays great:
I got the body off eBay years ago for a bit above $200. The finish easily cost that. The body and neck are from 73. The neck pickup is from 75. The 4 hole F plate is from 76.
The mind reels.
It had a Bigsby at one time.
Doesn't look ugly at all. I mean, the flames aren't everyone's cup of tea, but I think it's pretty rad.

This was the pine caster, now it’s the b bender daughter with a paint tripping cat caster.
This is Steve Howe, guitarist for legendary Prog Rock outfit Yes.
And here's the guitar he's playing in that picture.
So why would I consider this thing to be ugly?
Well, take a good look on what it says on the headstock...
Yes, that REALLY is a 1950 Broadcaster modified to have body bindings and refinished in black.
Noooooooooo! Of all the guitar besmerchment posted, this takes the cake. Please tell me this was done in the 70s when everyone was high and old Fenders had little value?
