beat-up tele


Swamp ash body burned with a torch and punished in a lot of ways. Beaten, scratched, dropped, painted than stripped back, than painted again. Finished in a session of drunken scraping. 

For no particular reason I paired it with a roasted maple neck having a birdseye maple fingerboard perfectly inlayed. This is a really smooth and sophisticated neck on a beaten-up body. 

Well, it sounds really good with a set of Bare Knuckle 50's pickups and Fender hardware.
