TwoTone Telecaster [][][]

This is an Ash bodied parts o' caster with a built in amp and speaker. Built this with  the leftover parts from the D.I.Y telecaster project and a spare ash body i had lying around. The amp is a basic Smokey style 386 chip amp with Hi/Lo gain switch and a paper speaker. Made it with a CBS style Strat headstock and an asymmetrical neck profile which basically means reshaping the back of the neck so that it is thinner towards the bottom edge . Painted in 2tone Sunburst with flaming skull on back.
