Loving the Creston at the top of this page!

A customer just posted some pics of his finished build using a body I painted for him in lightly aged Inca Silver. Of course I'm biased but I think this is one of the best looking tele builds I've seen in a long time! I'm tempted to go Inca Silver for my personal build now.

Oh wow!! That looks absolutely amazing! I've had a few Telecasters, but none ever stuck. I would like to try again, I think!

Here’s my newly finished Rexter IBM Tele.

Just as a comparison, and because I love to show it off!

Is this an original or a reissue?

Thanks StevenO, i had the neck built to my own specs as i don't have very big hands but use my thumb on the low e string a lot, so it's a tiny, slim neck which is far from many people's cup of tea. But i love it.

Picked this up about a month ago. It’s the best tele I’ve ever owned so I finally went for it on a spitfire.

that looks fantastic.

I really love Lace Sensors; I've been spending the most time with a JB-equipped Soloist, and my cheapo Hot Gold Strat lately - I'm pretty impressed how much tighter, harmonic and better sounding the Sensors are. Love the proprietary Telecaster Plus ring.
