    This guitar has been a makeover of our first completed guitar. It features a Schaller Flagship and piezo saddles ...

    Thank you so much! Look out for my next build - I should be able to start my next one in a couple months and I will definitely include a build thread!

    I've been very quiet around here the past few years, but I did make a couple neat things in that time. This is one of those things.

    Thats one of the nicest tele-ish builds I've seen on this fourm. Are the dots on the fretboard glowing? Either way, super classy...

    I think someone just went through the whole thread for their first time, you really dug deep for that one.

    Great work! Did you have to get the string through block on the back custom made? I've been looking for something like that since installing a Hannes, it looks cleaner than the individual ferrules I think.


    Sorry for the doublepost, I have not been on here in forever haha.
