Butterscotch Telecaster with Joe Barden pickups

I put this guitar together today for a customer. The body is from guitarbuild.co.uk and the owner finished it using my Butterscotch nitrocellulose lacquer.

I fitted the Joe Barden pickups, with the bridge mounted to the body, G E Smith style. There is a 4-way switch fitted, giving in-series as well as in-parallel pickup combinations, adding an extra dimension to the sound. The Joe Barden pickups sound huge.

The pickguard is one I made from Garolite sheet, lacquered in clear nitrocellulose of course!
