It's about as close to a custom as I'll get I think!!!

Anyone ready for the full spec of the Fecker "La Cabronita" yet??  ;)

Yes indeedy  :lol:
I think I hate being indecisive.

Is it simply a black, P90 Esquire?

'Cause that'd be swish  8)

Nope, it's not black and not P90'd and it's not Alder!

Full spec is:

Neck:

Warmoth Pro Series '59 Roundback in maple
Tele headstock
Maple board
Black dot inlays
Gotoh vintage style tuners in chrome
Fecker "La Cabronita" and Fecker Custom Shop decals

Body:

Two piece korina Tele
Top binding in white
White scratchplate (or maybe not, depends how the body looks when finished)
Back and sides finished in Natural
Top only finished in Blue Sparkle(!)  :o  8)
Gotoh hardtail strat bridge with through body stringing
Rear routed for controls
Top routed for single bridge pickup
Chrome Gretsch knobs
Schaller chrome straplocks

Electrics:

TV Jones Filter'Tron Plus bridge pickup
Volume
Push/pull tone pot to give tone pot or fixed 'c--ked wah' effect
Les Paul style jack socket

I think that's everything!  The pickup is what started the whole idea off when Wez posted it up for sale, combined with my left over neck.  It was also inspired by the Fender Custom Shop La Cabronita Especial I posted earlier, plus I've been looking for something in Blue Sparkle for a little while  :)

Basically, it's a cross of all these three!

i think the pickguard is a 'make once and see how it looks' kinda deal - whatever ends up being right for the guitar at the end of the day

Sure! I just don't like this pickguard, perhaps a new one could be great... But it's Twinfan's guitar, his opinion is what matter :lol:

Should be cool  8)

So what's it going to be called? It's by Wez, so it'll start with a V probably, it's blue...
