where are all these pictures taken? either you have two bad ass floor urinals in your house (which would be awesome), or you are walking around a really nice place with that guitar just posing it.

either one is sweet. that guitar is bad ass (minus knobs). should love the hot tele bridge.

Aye and aye.

Despite the two refins and three months, the job got done right, and it feels/sounds great with every strum. Have considered putting in a 5+1 varitone switch (I have both a Torres and D Guitars set in the toolbox) by the cutaway to make use of an extra Gretsch pot knob and a few more (probably unnecessary) tones, but it's pickguard first...More to come, nonetheless. Cheers for the expressed ogles and polite drooling, I wish I had a box o' wet tissues to pass around to yall.

COUCH LURVE. Grab a wang, either theirs or yours. Razz

Two seems to be much better than one, eh? Fortunately they're getting on just fine together.

I got them from www.guitarpartsresource.com, listed as "Genuine Fender white vintage amplifier control knobs".

I don't like the knob choice on the Esquire, but that other than that LOEV EM.

I've got those knobs on my mustang to match the off-white robroes; it's sexy.

I wish I was married to you so I could get a sweet Tele like that.

Yar. The "Esquink" needs a little love right now, so I'll probably be taking it into my friend's shop for some grimy TLC: If you look a the above twinshot closely, you'll notice that the pickguard is starting to shrink and buckle under the strings, the neck could be shimmed a little better by someone who knows what they're doing (i.e. not me), and the aluminum bridge needs to be filed for proper saddle grooves in order to avoid more sliding and wear. Just the same, the jangley buzz that you get from the floating bridge itself is unlike anything I've heard from a Fender, it's like a twang from another planet. The local consensus over here is that the off-white guard matches the amp knobs in their own way, and classy Tele goodness does it's thing just fine with the barrels...diff'rent cup-o-tea every month, to be sure:

I am super into that pink esquire.

I give the nod to the amp knobs, rather than the barrels.

wish those bigsbys werent so expensive, id like to put one on my tele but i cant justify that cost.

I finally got the above google'd custom Gretsch temp for the pickguard properly sized and printed out this past week(14 months too late, eh?), and dropped by good ol' Mr. Kim's for a little acrylic work. The lack of an arched top made it a little weird/pointless, but the amount of space given when the guard sits on top of the filtertron ring seemed to be "just enough", and an LP clip fit just fine despite an unsavory angle about it that needed some help.






He then filed down the clip screw a bit to keep the height consistent, and bent the clip slightly to confirm a 90 degree angle.





$35 and a few jokes later it was done. The next step is to get the guard backsprayed with the right tone of green lacquer, a hue impossible to find at Korean hardware stores, so I'm going back to Willows after the weekend to have them do it the same froggy shade while doing the last touch, which is a master volume control by the lower horn. I thought it would be cool and quite functional to have the back two act as separate tone controls, given the huge difference in character between the front and back pickups, and just might have the master wired with a push/pull for a kill switch for lolz and stuff.

You've come a long way, baby.
