Double bound, relic, 70's Tele Custom. Has anyone ever seen or made one of these?

For example:

Anyone have photos they can share? I'm thinking of doing this as a project on my 72 Custom reissue but am hoping to see some examples before I start routing my guitar...

The Andy Summers custom shop Tele.

A few guys on the Tele page have made their own.

I have a Superlead made tele just like the one in the bottom pic but with a rosewood board (and a mutch lighter relic job). I'll try to get a pic or two up for you later on.

Klein bridge and Brandonwound PAF in the neck. Wired with a 4 way switch and I love it.

Looking forward to some pics too. I have a Roadworn 72 custom and yeah binding would look champ on it.

Here are a couple pics of mine. Both were made by a member here on the boards, Superlead. I'll probably start a new thread with thoughts on them.)




Here you can tell just how fat these necks are--there is not even a 'heel' where the neck and headstock meet.
