Rat rod telecaster

Ok, technically not a CBG but Cigar Box Nation is directly to blame for this instrument being built so I am sharing it here. Presenting: "Conviction" A tribute to the venerable Fender a Telecaster, built in a rat rod style with vintage flair and lots of power under the hood thanks to a pair of shiny Chrome played CB Gitty Snake Oil humbucking pickups. Back in 1957 Ontario was pressing license plates in prisons and hadn't yet repealed the death penalty. A blues riff on this instrument carries a level of authority you don't come across often.

  • Looks great, how does it sound?

  • Cool Greg ! This baby appeals to me on many levels : I love my Tele , I admire other's Rat Rods , USA & Canada have nice to look at pressed plates unlike our UK plastic rubbish ... It looks badass ,,, Can you please post a video demo ? 

  • Oh yeah.  Dandy.  I think we've moved on  from cigar box based instruments.   LPGs and quite a few others fit into the way my head groups things. 

  • kewl ;-)
