Rob Oliveira of Crowley Texas: Recently Rob built for me this Tele. It's a USA Custom Guitars body (swamp ash 2 piece) and neck (maple/maple). Rob finished the body in very thin nitro along with the face and back of the headstock. The back of the neck and the fingerboard are done with Tru-Oil. The pickups are Don Mare 2324 Nancy with a transparent nickel-silver cover on the neck pickup. The rest of the parts are the Callaham black guard kit: dig the knobs!

Sweet guitar! How do you like the Callaham kit? How about the tuners? I wondered if he made his own or if he was using another brand.

I will use the Callaham kit on my next Tele. And I'll ask Rob Oliveira to build it for me.

I'm sure Mr Callaham would answer that Q about the tuners.

This pic really shows the Nitro "stinger" on the back of the headstock, against the Tru-Oil on the back of the neck. And the Callaham tuners:

Nice finish...I like how well you can see the grain. It may be an illusion, but the finish looks really thin. I've got the Nancy pickups in my partscaster and they're incredible. Damn near a perfect Tele as far as I can tell.

Very nice!

My black guard partscaster has a very early set, #34, of 2324's in it. They're from back when all Don was doing was rewinds. The guitar is definitely a special one, to me.

Enjoy yours, it's beautiful and I'm sure it sounds great too.
