    From the ad: "The cutaway has been cut away giving the guitar a new look but don't ask me why as I didn't do the job on it."

    In other words: "Hey, don't look at me.... Not my fault."

    A+ for ingenuity, anyway. They solved their problem, whatever it was. :eek:

    That is a very mild case of modding. I've seen a lot worse.

    +1 This is my thought too. Some people just don't have aesthetic creativity.

    Poor guy. Loves his guitar so much just can't put her to pasture.

    Maybe we're missing the point here:

    Zz top anyone!?

    Bet the owner of this has a magic magnetic spinning belt buckle. Bad ass.

    New sport. Extreme tele dismantling.

    Wait till storm season, disassemble tele on your porch in a tornado. Put it back together with what you can find of the original peices plus what's lodged in near by trees.

    That one there J-man, is pretty darn cool looking, but the Op's example is just not pretty.

    I kind of like that body shape. The execution might not be too good, hard to tell from the pics. But I wanted to design a body that was kind of like a tele, but also different, that wouldn't be a bad place to start.

    I wouldn't recommend doing it to an existing Tele, but whatever, it belonged to the person who did it at the time.

    Unless maybe there's a marauding gang of rogue guitar modders that break into people's houses and wreck havoc?
