Tell me the specs you chose (and why if you'd like), and post a pic! I'm in the process of figuring out specs and could use some inspiration!

Here’s a very recent shot of mine, which I ordered in 2012. I was going for more of a rock/blues Tele (Stones/Crowes/Zep/Robben Ford) and Chris recommended the alder / rosewood combo and Lollar Vintage T and Special T pickups which I LOVE although I know Chris rolls his own now. The Special T still sounds like a Tele but has some extra beef and I really prefer have a touch more output from the bridge pickup. I believe the neck is Chris’ standard shape which is a nice full C/U neck and 10” radius. Nothing fancy, just great execution of a classic.

This guitar had a new finish and was my primary gigging and rehearsal guitar while playing in bands from 2012-2015. Just a home player since then. Chris shoots the nitro super super thin and it wears pretty quickly as you can see!

Not a Truxton, kinda like one but more stretchy. I just got this Texola from another TGPer on kind of an impulse buy. I really like the guitar -- great weight and balance, pickups sound great, just a marginally too-skinny neck. Gonna play it for a while then think about getting a bigger neck from Chris.

Is that a roasted neck? how does it feel? do u know the specs of your neck? my k line truxton special p90 is .83 and it feels just right for me. The texola is on my radar too!

Yes it is 'roasted' maple, with a satin finish. It's a 0.880" V with a 10" radius. Feels great, just too dang small. Feels smaller than 0.88" to me, must be the V profile.

It is a .880SSV. V necks always feel thinner than a comparable C neck at the same size. Shoulders matter. I always recommend a .920SSV when getting one if you like a fuller feel.

I saw that when it was for sale, and almost scooped it up. It’s a looker — congrats on a good find!

If you ever want to sell it, feel free to ping me. :)

This thread is killing me. I just placed my order for a Springfield, and now I must be patient. Of course I had a hard time deciding between the Springfield and the Truxton. Seeing these Truxtons has me wanting one of them too.

I got the Blonde direct from Chris and he told me the neck was 0.850.
I haven’t measured them, but the others feel similar in size.

My Texola has 0.838" measured and Springfield 0.850" by the spec card. Both are very comfy medium c-shapes with balanced taper and shoulders.

Is medium c .850? My truxton special I believe is .830 and I might want something just slightly beefier for a change
Your silver special is a .830". I remember who that was originally built for. HE always like me to knock off a few from the regular .850"C. If is says med-c, usually that is a .850".
