    Here's my JA90 Tele. It's more like a Gibson with a Fender logo on it. It's a set neck, 24 3/4" scale, Gibson style bridge and stop bar, P90's.

    Count me in as a fan of natural finishes.

    If I ever decide to pull the trigger on a custom Suhr, it will be with a natural finish.

    The back of my '77 Ehlers Jumbo
    Quartersawn Wenge
    I'm not sure I've seen another back in Wenge that is cut in this manner.

    ....and, my old Hagstrom Swede ... a 76, I believe.
    Sadly, the neck developed a twist and it cracked the neck-pocket...not-restorable.

    I like Au Naturale enough to just stain the cabs I make.
    I need to finish that 4x15 some day...

    PRS Standard 24 I snagged in June. All mahogany, save for the rosewood board. My #1, though I put in a 3-way/push pull drop in kit.
