    I recently traded a relic Tele partscaster for this RB6 type parts guitar with TGP member Dave Fischer (Dave, I hope I got your last name right). It has a Warmoth boat neck contour neck that has been a revelation - I can't decide if it or a '59 carve is my absolute favorite. TV Jones Powertron pickups, an RB6 type body made of light-weight pine, an Electrosocket jack and Glendale bridge are the other appointments.

    Dave, I hope you like the Tele as much as I like this RB6 - the body is super resonant and the neck fits my hand like the proverbial glove. The pickups, of course, are killer.

    I am building an RB6 partscaster right now. The bodies come from Rosser guitars. Yours looks great.

    I thought it might be a Rosser body. I haven't seen anyone else making that body type. I'm hoping I can snag a control cavity plate from them at some point.

    That's one of my Waterslide Telebacker builds, glad you like it. Great neck on that one, for sure. Someone's changed the parts around on it a bit, though, it came from me like this:

    I'll make you a new backplate for it if you wanna PM your info.

    That is a beautiful guitar. I have been wanting to build an RB style for a while. I want the body to be routed with the selector up top like the fano style. Yet to find someone that makes it yet.
