I guess the headstock is the Tele nod? I do like it, by the way.

The body wood is swampash and very light.  

The pickups are by Josh Gravelin.  

The bridge is a Super V Bladerunner.  

Tuners are Sperzel staggered locking.    

Neck is maple with ebony board.  

The green is 1967 Pontiac Vedoro Green ( I had a firebird  with a big block that color).   

I cannot play worth a sh*t because of a stroke but it’s very comfortable and sounds great through my Soldano Lucky 13 100 watt and East Duality 50.   

I like comfort neck carves, so I did it to this build even though it’s not on any firebirds I know of.  I even did the carve on a strat build.

And yes, I like Korina

@ptm1diver that is some heavy fire power you have going with the Lucky 12 and Arena 50.
