    I got this Tele pine body from a member here and the Allparts neck came from another member too.
    I decided this would be a barncaster built, went for Esquire built since I already had modded my Squier and called the “Westerner” this one would be the “Ponderosa”:D

    I had to zoom in to see what was going on with the bridge and controls plate.
    Very nice, with that lacy embossed texture.
    Even the saddles are textured?

    Thanks guys, the pickup is a Seymour Duncan Hot Tele bridge with coil tap. I added a treble bleed and cockwah wiring.

    Great build! It really looks "of a piece" with all components contributing nicely to the rustic theme.
