    Default Heavy Relic Tele style..:)

    A friend asked me to help him build a guitar he's been dreaming about for a while, quite a weird one, but wich should be cool in a sens.

    The description
    Telecaster Style Body
    2 humbucker
    Floyd Rose
    Tele Controle Plate
    Charvel BirdEye Neck.

    And to top it all off. he wants it TOTALY heavy relic in a vintage Daphnee Blue stylecolor. Baby Blue if you will.

    He just left the house, and was VERY excited and can't wait to get it assembled...

    have to agree, it looks great so far.
    i'm thinking of doing a heavy relic tele, but seafoam green over sunburst...i was thinking of using mahog and a couple of emg's (like the Jim Root) with a strat trem.

    I don't like Teles, but that came out very nice. I am a relic fan myself, so I love that look.

    OK..we're getting closer to the finish line..:-). only part missing is the electronic plate comming in Monday with knobs and pots.

    Hopefully she's done by midweek..

    Client is REALY happy so far, and already asked to have another one with P90's. and no floyd.
