    ...seems very next to a semi-acoustic with all the worm holes inside... reclaimed pine (older kidhouse)
    But is all one-piece (except two little stripes on the sides). Great resonance and those P90's sound really great!
    Made it just because the previous with P90 went away, and really loved that sound. This one might stay longer...

    Very unusual guitar, good work! A pro woodturning buddy of mine prefers to work with wood like that, that has character.

    Papa Joe, thank you, it was only with a hand router for pickups chamber, still, they're not perfect... and loong drill (20-25 cm) from neck to bridge pup, then from that one to the electronics cavity.

    Excellent job on that Tele, mikey!!
    I'm sooooooooo glad you didn't put any finish on it!!
    I just love bare, unfinished guitars. They look so much more organic, and you don't have to worry about scratching it or denting it.
    And a top mount hard tail bridge, too! Simple wins every time in my book.

    So am I, agree, I was thinking of oiling it a bit or something, but natural is always a Win! They look great as you say, but more, they feel impressive to skin contact, and that's important I suppose. Denting? No prob, a lot of scratches on, so you can stick your fingers inside, if you really want that...
    I'm glad you like it and yes, hard tail bridge is not only easier but safer as well. What book are you talking about? I might be interested...

    "What book are you talking about? I might be interested..."

    Oh - There is no "book." That's just a old saying that we use here in the U.S.
    "In my book" just means "That's something I like."
    I forgot that you're over there in Romania...

    You folks have serious skills. I'm proud of myself when I can solder something and NOT fry the pot. Kudos on the beautiful and loving work you put into your craft.
