    Built my first Tele! Western red alder body with a redwood burl veneer finished with lacquer, FSR Bullet neck refinished with wax paste, Fender tuners, bone nut, CV Tonerider pups, CV bridge, relic'd, Walla Walla maple control plate, standard tele wiring... I'm really happy with this, it's the reason my CVC and CV50 are for sale... Because now I have a classic vibe that is all my own. The twang is the thang! (Smitty is my nickname)

    Stunning! Beautiful build, congrats. The maple control plate--very nice touch--how did you engrave or etch it?

    Enjoy that beauty.

    It's a laser etched plate from Walla Walla guitars, they have several designs.

    Pretty amazing .. the top reminds me of different skins, feathers,, and a reptile belly for good measure.. so many patterns it makes you wonder how many pieces of vaneer was used..

    Beautiful Tele, you did an excellent job.
     
  9. If that plays half as good as it looks, you've got a true winner there. Excellent!
    Cheers, Barrie.

    You're just making my Telelust worse with that! Beautiful axe, may just be my favorite you've done.
