Thought i would show some pics of my latest build since I am trying something new, but still giving it that Gretsch flavour I love so much. This is my first double bound tele, but also a first is the purfling. At work we carry Sigma guitars which are Martin copies, pretty decent ones too, and theres the model with the ivoroid binding and herringbone purfling which looks pretty badass so thought i would give it a go. So its a one piece ash body chambered with maple top, double ivoroid binding with bound cats eye, and purfling on the top. Heres where I am at so far. I always make such a mess when doing binding!
