Not Quite A Tele...

Thanks man, you've captured the essential intent in 2 sentences.

And I've said this many times, but it bears repeating. Building guitars is easy compared to taking good pictures of them.

That is just begging to be played. Bravo!

That finish is absolutely immaculate - I could see myself in it from here.

It's begging for somebody better than me to play it, that's what it's begging for!<_<

Reflections are funny things.

I'm pretty sure I could see you in it too.:D

Thanks for the kind words.

Love the sculpting. Makes an otherwise machine-made pattern (the tele) guitar look like one that's got a lot more humanity in it.

Those shiny curves! Oh how I wish I could justify building more guitars to reach your skills!

I can't justify building them either. But I'm going to build something. These give me pleasure while I'm building them, and then keep giving pleasure once they're done.

That's justification enough.:)

I find it's a struggle justifying not building guitars :D

AHAHAHA I know! When I see some of the wood sitting in my shop, I feel like it's my responsibility to do it justice by turning it into a shred machine. Interestingly, on my current build I felt like I needed to do it justice and got better wood for it. 🔥

It really is an unbelievable guitar....'not quite a Tele' indeed. Has your personal stamp all over it! Which is I guess what this is all about right? :)
