One of my favorite woods, done right anyway. I never knew that it would sound so good too though? Meez Beez Kneez Pleez . . .duh! With a walnut back, this guitar does weigh nearly 11 lbs though . . . :shock:

Holy CRAP! Both of the above two guitars--I'm usually not a Tele shape guy, but keriminny... both of these things are just ballbreaker guitars. Each so similar, yet sooo different.

Wow, enjoy guys. Thems both be my kinda builds! :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:

I have to say that I do like it better with the pickguard now that you have the correct one.

But the only reason I say that is I don't like it just with the control scratch plate alone without the rest of the guard. If you could get the control plate off so it's completely pickguard free, then I would say Go For It! and let that claro shine on eternally!

It's such a beautiful bass either way that nothing could spoil it. Enjoy her for a lifetime my friend!

Figured I'd stick these here. Walnut (yes, walnut) with a transparent crimson finish.

The guitar came without the crimson on the headstock but I had it refinished to match. Here's what the walnut looked like naked:
