Yes.  American Original 60s Telecaster.  I was worried the slighter flatter neck would feel “un-Fendery” but it feels like an old friend.

The finish is pretty fragile.  It sounds like it is supposed to.

The korina Chandler Telepathic from Guitar Player Magazine...

The Danocaster Mongrel fully equipped with Josh Gravelin "special" pickups.  These just became unobtanium...

LOVE double-bound Teles.  I’ve owned a bunch of Teles over the years, but this red 05 AVRI is the keeper. My surf green AVRI was also extremely nice-both were better than the Fender Custom Shop 60s Tele I had.

Have my friend Tom Kelley in Santa Barbara make you one. This one is mahogany, chambered with a maple top. Since he lives right down the road from Seymour he had the custom shop wind him custom pickups.

Looks like he makes quality instruments. Out of my reach, though.

Just got this ESP in a local trade.  A double bound tele has been on my bucket list for a while!  It has a great V carve neck.

The owner had bought it while he was stationed in Japan, and it apparently spent some time with him on a Naval sub :)
