    I'm not picky... it doesn't even have to be a Fender. This is my favorite style of bass, so who can give me the worst case of G.A.S.? :bassist:

    Well here's my telecaster inspired bass I made a couple of months ago, just about to put another single coil in the neck position. The ashtrays look a little wonky for some reason too. Sorry about the poor quailty, but here it is.

    Here's my BaCH. The color is called "butterscotch", but it's really more of an orange-y, raw egg yolk hue.

    I built this for my son for his 21st Birthday. I custom mixed the color, I call it Mary Kaye Coral. It's got a matching headstock

    Its a shame they replaced it with School Bus Yellow! Not as historically accurate to begin with....

    And cool build midichlorine! Is that relic or playing wear?
