OK..a friend of mine, who i have known for 25 years asked me to make him a guitar....after months of searching, he could'nt find what he wanted. His former band was playing mostly "pop" songs so his guitar parts were never that extensive. now, new band, more old school metal from Metallica to Maiden to AC-DC. His tele did'nt do the trick...BUT, he got used to a telebody.
So, we took all the stuff he liked about a tele, and turned it into a Shredder style guitar. BUT...it had to look like it was a 50 yeard old telecaster rebuilt to be a shredder. I should get the rest of the parts monday for final assembly...but in the mean time, here's the body work..
THe guitar will consist of this basicaly.
Tele Style body.
Original Floyd Rose
All Black Hardware.
2 Vintage style PAF humbucker.
All Bird Eye Maple Charvel style neck.
Aged Cream pickguard.
Should be intesting..
I love old school Metal-Tele, like the Kramer and Charvel (not the new San Dimas ones).
