    That's pretty cool! :) And yeah, I think my '68 looks pretty sweet too. ;)

    Wow! The first thought that came to me was "tone." Beautiful. Back in the early 70s I had a Gretsch Tennessean - bought used, but it was excellent.

    I haven't been on this forum in quite a while, so here is a quick update on some gear.
    I was going to make a Steinberger style headless, but changed my mind and ended up with this:

    Then a Jazzmaster out of the same plank of Sapele:

    Next a Music Man style with a Korina back and flame maple top:
    [​IMG]
    And finally, a trade possibility came up, I offered and he accepted. I traded a PRS CE24 for a PRS NF3 Korina. These narrowfield pickups sound really good, and it's a strat killer with all the in between tones and no single coil noise!

    QUOTE="x_25, post: 2253093, member: 30723"]This is the guitar I am working on fixing at the moment. Don't know much about it. It seems to be from the mid 60's and made in Japan. I also have a Fender Squire Strat. Nothing special, but then again, I am a drummer and not a guitarist. :D

    You're a musician, and one more versatile than me, since I can't play drums. More power to you mate.

    Thank you. They are both CS reissues with a modern Telecaster wiring scheme and fret radius. On the left is a '63 Telecaster, and right a '51 "Nocaster."

    Very sweet. Always love that burst on a Tele ever since seeing it on a Clapton record.

    I gotta get another Tele. I'm really into two-pickup guitars, and PAFs have their limits.

    My first foray into the world of electric guitars.

    IMG_1024.JPG

    A modern reproduction of the '66 Epiphone Wilshire with Tremotone and a portable Pignose amp. Went into the store looking for an archtop hollowbody and walked out with this little beauty. It does have an agravating fret buzz on the E string so I'm going to bring it back in to have it set up properly. Hopefully they can remedy that.

    The stark contrast of the sleek guitars against the rough rock wall is as artistic as can be. I'm lusting after the far right Strat.

    The Jazzmaster looks fantastic! What a wonderful hunk of wood. May I ask your process and materials to finish?

    You know, as far as guitar amplifier mystique goes, nothing intrigues me more than a Vox Super Beatle. IMO no other amp with any claim to fame looks as dark and menacing.
