1: 1.5" Pine body I cut from an old chest of drawers that I found on the side of the road. It's an homage to the old Snakehead Teles of yore. It's not a 1:1 copy, more of an "in the vein" type thing. Right now I have a Squier A3 Classic Vibe bridge pup, Wilkinson bridge, All Parts aged neck, Kluson tuners, and an Electrosocket with a Swtichcraft jack. Electronics are CTS pots wired for Vol and tone. Still have more work to do on it, but it's getting close to being done. I plan on playing it some tonight and working on the setup.







2: 1.75" Pine Tele with TV Jones pups, Compensated Titanium saddles, custom made sparkle guard, all the good electronics parts, and a sparkle paint job by me. I think the neck is from All Parts? I don't remember as I put this together awhile ago, and I've been buying necks from Aurora Customs on Reverb. I built this as a "period" piece, something someone would've put together in the early 60's. I'm COMPLETELY in love with it.


Very nice work...
