    Looks good on the coffee table. Good way to keep it handy.
    Beautiful looking. What's it sound like and how does it play?

    I believe it's a member here who built it. It's a Tinman tele. Very, very nice build.

    It sounds very nice. It has DiMarzio PAF's under the covers and the volume and tone are push pulls, so there's a wide variety of single coil/bucker sounds available.
    It plays really nice. The neck is slim, which is my only problem being use to huge necks, but it's slick as butta!

    Nice ones! Here are a couple of my newest telecasters (Esquire too!). Mainly a stratocaster player but I do love my telecaster. I think I must have Fender in the blood.........

    Looks like a guitar the Tinman would play (he didn't have a brain but was the smartest one of the bunch!)
