Talking My new custom baby is here!!!

Just got my new custom project finished and it looks and sounds fantastic.
It combines 3 types of guitars , kramer,telecaster and jem. The body is an from alder, shaped like a telecaster but with the arm rest and tummy curves.
I also curved a jem like monkey grip and scalloped the heal for better neck access. The ncek is a kramer barreta maple neck with rosewood fingerboard.
The tremolo is an original floyd rose. for pickups I used EVO2 in the bridge and dimarzio chopper in the neck. The swirl was done by me as well.
The outcome is a fat, loud and creamy sound and I can't stop playing it.
pictures are right here:






hmmm.....
Before someone will say something, the head stock say "Fecker Bellycaster" so don't start the copyright debate please ;-)
Thanks.

This wouldn't normally appeal to me in an esthetic sense, but it's cool because it's so all over the place, I dig it.

That's crazy looking! Must be a great feeling knowing you've done it yourself.

That thing is right out of the Psychedelic era, a groovy axe for sure.
