    Oh you guys and your fancy store bought guitars. why back in my day we could build a guitar out of old chevy parts and broken wine bottles!
    Here we go...total cost 120$

    talking about the brown one on the left.

    I had that neck for years.. have a few in fact. and a guy needed a tele neck. sold it to him for 50$ with tuners, installed.
    he found out a month or more later that a fret was loosening.
    He brought it back and yelled at me for it.. as if I knew in the first place, which neither of us predicted.
    Anyway. I got pissed about that, because I've never tried to rip anyone off..

    So I bought a wish dot com tele body.
    warning: LOOK at the weight. they are very light!

    and I used old parts. I also bought a skull thingy.

    this is neck heavy. like an sg. so it's a bit of a drag standing up until you get used to it.
    I did the blue one years ago with all premium stuff.
    the brown one is unfinished in the above pic. it's done now.
    TWANG!

    Supersonic,
    Yes it is. I have wanted one for years. My wife bought it for me for Christmas last year and I just got it.

    GIR Day 1 (1).jpg
    2020 G&L Doheny Tribute. Other than the cavity floors looking like the got routed with a spoon I have no complaints. GIR Shield completed.jpg
    I had to conform the copper tape to the floor of the route with an eraser.

    This has to be the most comfortable guitar I own. NGD / build thread

    The carving is very detailed and the upper part of the waist follows the cowboy's right arm. Haven't seen bullet hole fret markers before.

    WOW! I don't know if I'd want that - but as a lifelong cowboy-movie aficionado, I do love it!!!
    Most excellent!
