It’s always nice to see a new vendor come along and offer a quality product at a competitive price.

I was able to order a few specials from Ben/RedDirt last year, and I’ve only now finished the first couple.

Although their core market is Teles and Tele mashups, they do offer bass bodies as well.

Sooooo…post your finished Red Dirt Guitar Works (http://www.reddirtguitarworks.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=SFNT&Store_Code=RDGW) projects here.

My first one finished:

Thanks man...good to see you here!

I wasn't exactly thinking Captain America when I painted it, but it sure does fit.

Are you doing anything with that 24 fret T-style model you built?

That guitar is absolutely stunning!

In the next few weeks I'll post a big update "over there" on the 2 24fretters I'm working on right now (the 7 string tele and a funky torrefied set neck tele-jr).

Glad Red Dirt is doing right by you. He spent a lot of time getting things "just right".

I'm digging the Captain America look there, BeeTL. Very cool.

With only a tiny bit of work (and maybe a piece of metal inlaid) that headstock would make a great can/bottle opener.

I really believe they're giving it a good go, and they've been very fair to me for sure.

I had an oddball idea (see the OP), and Ben made it happen at an exceptionally fair price.

What more could I ask for?

Is that a simple 3-way switch with V/T stasked pots?
cSo cool...

One day that WILL be an accessory...:)
