Hi Guy's, I don't think I have posted here before, too many groups.

Anyway, I see solid bodies are the go here so I'd like to show a few.

This first one has a lot of work in it, it uses my modified shape of the Tele, and is the only shape I use unless a customer come up with an idea. 

Cheers Taff

Start them off young.

I tried getting my daughter interested when she was young, she went with the Clarinet instead and hasn't touched it for 12 years. Her son is 3 and seems to like drums for now. I'll get one hooked eventually. LOL
