I figured all you guitar nerds out there would get a kick out of this Pomona that my friend Jeff Senn just finished for me. I think of it as a Tele that Ry Cooder would dig--it has a Teisco gold foil pickup in the neck position and a Fred Stuart LapWrap bridge pickup, which happen to get along VERY well. I was a little worried the LapWrap would overpower the Teisco, but they are perfect together...they're in phase and hum-cancelling in the middle. Alder body, big V maple neck, and a reverse control plate. Very cool. When I get some time, I might put up a demo video for y'all. Jeff did a demo on his facebook page, and he sounds GREAT with it. In the meantime, here is a pic:

At first, I wanted a white Tele Jr. pickguard with white button tuners, but Jeff showed me some old, black mongrel guitar he has with a gold pickguard. It looked so cool and works with the Goldfoil pickup vibe, that we changed it to a gold Tele Jr guard and nickel tuners. This thing fits me so well. Couldn't be happier with how it came out. Thanks, Jeff!

Believe it or not, my wife, that never comments on guitars, saw this over my shoulder and said, "Ooo I like that!".
I like it too.

It's a winner!

Man that is stunning! I have a new dream Tele..
I can't stop looking at this! I wonder if it also had binding? Super cool! I've had my hands on 7 Senn's and EVERY one was amazing. His attention to detail, tone and playability are spot on. The best I've seen!
