What a great contest. I didn't even notice it until it was well under way so I didn't get to read the details but anyone (and everyone) who turned that little money into such beatiful guitars certainly gets my hat tipped.

All entries are amazing. It is even more amazing the amount of time you all spent entertaining us. I bow to you all. I learned a few things along the way and I thank you for that as well.

Congratulations to the top three vote getters. You all pulled votes so it was a matter of math. You all should be as proud of your efforts as we were of watching them.

Congratulations, Scatt! Well deserved and earned!

I found your thread inspiring and challenging - I fully anticipated buying a cheap modern-style Tele bridge until I saw you make yours. I thought, uh, wow, okay then. That's how it's done!

And then I thought, well, he's made one out of steel - so what can I do different?

Thanks, man, for pushing all of us and setting the bar high very early on!

I've been watching the World Baseball Classic... just sheer joy for the game of baseball... maybe the best stuff ever as it relates to baseball.

All of these builds were like that... I couldn't root for anyone build over another but the absolute joy for building and telecasters and really really cool people doing amazing things brought a lot of joy to my house.

Scatter Lee really set that 'can do' tone and the tone of someone who has fun with things...sees problems as opportunities and just handles it.

All who participated should be proud... some cool guitars and some really awesome people. Congrats to Scatter Lee and all the fellers who took a shot. You inspire us to be better!

it takes imagination, skill, improvisation, a tiny bit of luck, maybe a few choice cuss words on the way, and darned determination to create wonderful musical instruments with such a small budget.

congratulations to the winners: scatter lee, big mike simpson and martyb1

and props to all who signed up for the challenge. great job!

What a great source of entertainment, education and encouragement this challenge was. Hats off to all contestants.

Would be cool to see each of the build photos/comments strung together as a slide show. Maybe even with recordings of each of the respective instruments in the background.

Congrats to the winners & to all the builders.


+1. Congrats to "all ya'll".

I ain't gonna lie. I was overwhelmed. In time I hope to incorporate a lot of these great ideas into my projects. I'm just humbled; so much ground left for me to cover to catch up with some of you guys and some I never will. Amazing stuff.

Yes sir! getbent has summed it up absolutely perfectly for me...:cool:

Great threads, great work, great ingenuity - I am in awe of ALL of you guys who stepped up to the plate to take part in this challenge.

Congratulations to Scatter Lee - a worthy winner - but a HUGE "thank you" to everyone who took part, judged the competition, and especially to those who made this whole idea possible....:cool:
