  • 3 weeks later...

I just finished this one up a couple of weeks ago so I figured I go ahead and enter this month. This is my Avenger body style, sort of my take on the modern double cut. It has a carved curly maple top, curly maple neck, eastern black walnut back, EIR fret board, and black wood for the binding, bridge base, tailpiece, truss rod cover, pickup rings, and knob tops. The pickups are p-rails, and its got a mini switch to control each on in addition to a master volume, master tone, and three way pickup selector.

12 String Gretsch/Tele

This was an idea dreamed up by a fiend of mine. He loves Orange Gretsch hollow bodies, Fender pro shop Gretsch Tele, and he really wanted a 12 sting ( He loves the Rickenbacker). So we can up with the 12 String Gretsch tele. Then he added the piezo to it. It look me almost a month of testing to make sure the headstock would work. Lots went into it.

RBTele by Boggs of RockBeach Guitars. It's impossible to show how the purple pearloid comes through the black overlay finish in the photos. It's just my take on a classic. It does have a forearm relief cut and also a belly cut.
