This is my 96 Hamer with not a scratch on her
Here's one that I purposely made as NOS. It was a spectacular tele.

And another "new-ish" custom tele build

Love that you bought back the guitar, hope your dad can see/feel this somehow. Great job on the restoration too, it looks absolutely stunning.
Great White once opened for us when they still called themselves Dante Fox. Their bass player was beating his bass and his beat to crap SVT with a chain when his amp cut out. First thing he does is start to plug into the house PA. Um no, we need that PA for our set. So me and our bass player Jimmy walk over to him and ask how we can help.
he looks at Jimmy and says "Can I borrow your amp?" Jimmy had a pristine SVT and two 8x10s in beautiful shape, he says "No you can't. But let's see what's going on with yours." I'm already looking and I find the speaker cable hanging on by a thread. I said "I think I found the problem. We need a speaker cable and probably a mains fuse." Jimmy asks the guy if he has a spare cable or fuse. of course he doesn't.
So he gets a cable and a fuse and says to the clown "this is a loan. You can keep the fuse, but I want my cable back. Understand?" The guys says Yes and thank you. They finish their set, I grab my cab and see the guy trying to steal Jimmy's SVT! I yell out, Jimmy (he's about 6'3", 220 and built like a linebacker which is what he played in college) takes off after this skinny junkie, grabs him and walks back in the club with a junkie in one hand and his SVT in the other. The guy has this stupid chain he was beating his equipment with in his hand.
I said "What do you think you're going to do with that chain?" and he dropped it. Jimmy let him go and he ran out of the club without his own amp. The other guys in his took it with them.
Moral of the story? Don't beat your gear with chains or you might get your ass kicked...
My 1987 PRS Standard
Two Warmoth Guitars that I love.
-Mahogany, Fender Blacktop Hum, Wilkensen, 50s neck, stainless, locking tuners
-Alder, Gilmour EMGs, 50s neck, fixed bridge, vintage tuners.
The brown one never goes out of tune
Is it a flat top like a Les Paul special ?
Are those Fender Blacktop pickups in the mahogany? I have a set of those in a loaded pickguard—need to build a guitar around them.
My 1986 ESP 400 Series. My wife, then girlfriend, bought it for me new back when we celebrated our first year of dating. It's been through a ton of changes over the years and seen too many pickups to count, but a couple of years ago I set out to return it to a modified stock form. I got a new single ply pickguard, installed the Fender Vintage Noiseless pickups and removed the all of the black hardware I installed, including the Gotoh tuners I put in back in the early '90s, opting for a new set of Gotoh vintage locking tuners.
It's had one refret several years ago and now plays and sounds better than it ever has.
yes, they are....
Before she was badly reliced
Then I de-reliced her with new face (top):
That's an incredible top! What's the story of this guitar?
She was born in 80s as black 12 string, then someone thought it would be good to paint her white. The top was damaged, repaired with epoxy. I got her to repair and decided to go with zebrano for top, it took some time get rid of white paint, and then usual routine - cut top to size, glue, finish and voila - she will be played for 30 more years
Here's my 1968 Ovation Hurricane.
1961 Melody Maker:
Not sure if the pictures show, but this is the guitar from the first post. A 1974 now converted to mostly 1969 specs.
Example of the above guitar through a Deluxe amplifier:
