    Default Black Paisley, thanks to divebomb!!!!

    I've wanted a paisley tele for ages. Last year I starting turning my black 80sjap tele into a Paisley tele. After several screw ups I gave up and it lay dormant in my house for months.
    After reading some of Divebomb's post and seeing his creations, it inspired me to get my act together and finish it. I just wanted to say thanks to Divebomb and show off my new tele!!!!

    Nice work, sir!

    Check this piece out:

    I used one of the chrome neck pickup rings for my custom Tele, because I'm not a fan of pickguards but wanted to cover the hole around the pickup.

    CHeers, I haven't seen these before. I was just going to stick on a clear pickguard. I'll check these out though

    Follow this link to a picture of my Tele right after I finished it almost a year ago: http://www.andrewthomas.net/archives/00000068.html. I like the pickup ring a lot.

    Dude, that is really nice. I may be in the minority here, but I am proud to be Tele lover (I play them with .10s). That is a sweet guitar!

    That is the hottest Tele I've ever seen, AT. She's gorgeous!

    I dig that black paisley as well, yelserpdog.

    I think a dark green with gold hardware would be nice.

    That's cool!

    Just curious how covering a guitar in fabric would effect the tone.

    Speaking of Paisley Tele's...
    I was at Sugar Hill Studio here in Houston last year and my wifes company was producing an album... uhhh...
    I mean CD and I was able to see James Burton (played with Elvis from '66 until his death). He made famous and still plays his Pink Paisley Tele. Man that guy can play!

    I have a pink Paisley Strat like this one.. it's not American made however. I bought it because it looked like Burton's (even though his is a Tele). I don't play it but I'm going to give it to my daughter when she's old enough

    Just curious if maybe a better option would have been to use a "lace" fabric as a template and paint the paisly graphic as opposed to actually gluing fabric to the guitar.
