Project Tele, Before and After

Hey all,
After playing out with my Bigbsy Tele, I decided that a Bigsby wasn;t for me, so I decided to make a project out of it. It's the first time I did the work myself. What do you think?
Bigsby is the before pic.

Re: Project Tele, Before and After

wow, very nice. you added the quilt top and finished it yourself? they both look sharp, although i kinda dig the binding on the before version a little more. been kinda mildly gassing for a tele, although i'd probably have to go with one made of ash.

No, I didnt do any of the hard work myself, I bought the body prefinished.
I only did the assembling and wiring. I wanted a double bound body, but this one was the right price.

+1, the quilt top looks much better (and more original) in my opinion congrats on such a nice guitar

Very nice looking guitar. I never really did like the look of Bigsby's on a Tele.

Nice! I kind of miss the pickguard, but then you wouldn't be able to see the top so well...

You didn't help any of my tele GAS though...
