For you all Tele lovers...here are the specs:

Warmoth Semi Hollow Black Korina body
Musikraft 1 piece Wenge neck
21 6105 frets
25.5 scale
Gotoh kluson tuners
Bareknuckle Black Dog calibrated pickups
Terrapin oversized acrylic pickup rings
CTS pots - Tone / Volume
5 way super switch (H Bridge / S Bridge / HH / S Neck / H neck)
Heavy knurl barrel knobs
Black Bee 0.22 cap
Cloth wiring
Rutters steel bridge with compensated barrel saddles

She's a total bliss to play - the sounds are tele like in the split positions but with full Humbuckers she reminds me of an EVH model...she bites!

I like the korina body and the wenge neck even more. You?ve got a fantastic looking guitar there.

It weighst just over 7 pounds - there are no holes but it is hollow.

Thanks for the kind words, I am really digging the sound so far, it is very snappy and vibrant.

Thanks - I took a gamble by stepping out of the usual alder / maple combo but I like this one a lot - despite all the differences she's still thinks she a tele! I am starting to really like exotic necks too, so far I have wenge on this one, Goncalo Alves on my home made Jazzmaster and Brazilian Rosewood on a PRS. My favourite is the wenge neck, by a mile.
