    I lusted for one of these, so I finally pulled the trigger. Here she is:

    Body is from www.tdlguitars.com
    Neck is from All Parts. Finished in nitro, and v-shaped. Maple, obviously.
    Pickups are Lindy Fralins Blues Specials.
    She needs a setup, but hot damn, what fun!
    Another one for the road:

    Here's a quick sound clip recorded tonight. It starts w/ the bridge pickup. The "solo" parts are the neck pickup. Please be kind, this is a one-take thang just to play with the pickups! :)

    Thanks man. Yeah, the neck tones are awesome. Mr, Fralin kinda knows what he's talkin' about! :)

    BTW, I just realized that the bridge pickup is way too low, hence some of the differences in tone and volume... something to fix.

    That tele is so cool. If I didn't have my heart set on a goldtop, I would definately go that route.
