WOW That's very hot!
Dave, that is killer!! What's it weigh?
Mark, right around 6 lbs. Feels like a feather compared to a LP.
It's funny on the wieght thing. I like the tone of very few super light LP's and my very favorite fenders are all lightweight. You got a good one!!
Ditto! I wonder why that is?
I probably missed something in some other post . . . . tell me, what is going on here . . . is this a partcaster that you relicked?
or a vintage that you relish?
Dude, that's friggin' awesome looking.... How much for one of those in an "Esquire" form?!?!
It's a parts-o-caster. With some used parts scrounging, I managed to do this one for a grand including the USACG parts and the MJ aged refin.
Does that mean that you did the refin?
I just bought an unfinished body that I want to work with . . . sortof agedness but also some cool faux finish-ideas that I have (used to be a painter before I discovered video-art) . . .
any hints beyond the info from the Reranch site?
BTW: any ideas about adding an amber tint to an allready finished maple neck?
and/or add that relic-fingerboard wear?
all or any stories or hints or tales of brave adventure welcome-!!
No, I was going to shoot it myself, but after I saw a MJTelecaster aged refin I sent the stuff to him. He did all the aging too.
That looks killer!
I thought about going your way, Dave, but I'm too impatient and ordered a Nocaster from Mark's. Should be here Wed.
JT, actually Mark was real fast doing the finish, it took longer to get the wood from USACG. I bet you are going to dig the Nocaster, I really like them but I just don't have the scratch for one.
Neither do I, really
I paid with money orders (out of some freelance cash I made) so the wife doesn't see a credit card bill!
that looks gorgeous!!! congrats!!!
Nice! MJ sure does great work. He did one like it earlier this year for me.
Got any specs on the neck?
When I ordered the neck from Tommy, I went with a big Broadcaster style neck, around an inch thick. 10" radius, 6105 frets. Come to find out some of the early Esquires and Broadcasters had a 9.5" radius anyways, so actually I'm fairly close to that.
Very cool...looks absolutely sweet.
I have Warmoth parts that a local buddy is going to finish/relic for me...now if he's just get back from Denmark so we can get this going!
Help me with this...were old tele bridge plates and jacks ever nickel, or just chrome?
I'm not an expert, but I've only seen chrome.
