Refurbishing one of my selfmade guitars

    This week I finished refurbishing the guitar that my boss refers to as "The ogre" I built this solidbody guitar a few years back with the intention of making a cross between a Gibson les Paul and a Fender telecaster. It used to be very roughly finished in silverburst and it had three dimarzio pickups. But then I decided to give my Telepaul a complete overhaul, make a better pickguard, sand down the body smooth and refinish it in three tone sunburst, this is the result. You switch pickups with a ballance pot rather than a conventional switch.


    well how does she look after all the effort I put in?
  2. Blazer,

    We take a dim view around here about guitar related subjects. We are, after all, a bass site. There are lots of guitar and luthiery sites available for discussion of these topics. As such, we reserve the space in these forums for discussion of BASS related topics.

    Thanx for keeping this in mind.

    And you did a great job with the restoration. I really like that re-styled pickguard - sort of the love child of a Tele and a Les Paul rendezvous
