It's a quiet day here at work, and no-one's listening, so I'll share a little secret  ;)

There's a rumour that a certain Mr Wez Venables is building something a bit different in his little workshop.  I had a spare chunky Tele neck knocking about, which he now has in his possession, and he's cooking up a little spicy something that the Rev Willie G might enjoy.......

First off, a couple of nice planks arrive:


Which are then glued up and left in clamps:



I wonder what type of wood that is?  What pickups and switching arrangement will it have?  What about the finish?  What will the guitar be called?  :?

Hmmmmm........   8)

Slight problem - I've already told Phil what's cooking in the pot!!!!

Something like this?

That pic is HUGE!  :lol:

You've got the very rough and general idea in that it will be a single pickup guitar, so well done!

I can't think how to hint without giving away the answers...

This might give a bit of a clue:

You're not a million miles away there Lew!

Body binding - yep!
Single pickup in a Tele body - yep!

Then Phil kicks in with this:






But the colour's all wrong and what's the body made out of????????????

Nope Ratrod, no pinstriping!  And it's not pine either  :)

Lew - not heard form Mark for a few days so I assume it's off.

Back to the custom build, and I've always liked the look of these.....

If thats going to be a hot-rod Esquire a la Rev. Gibbons then I am jealous. Very jealous. Would love one of them to be my 'rocker' guitar (maybe with a bigsby) to complement my Gibsons too.

Can't wait to see what this will be!

never getting a custom guitar, eh, dave? I know, I know, it's using a neck you already have, but still... you'll get there eventually, i reckon. :lol:

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??  ;)
