    Courtesy of my leather-man in Michigan, Mr. @panhead6zero, my Pirate-Caster Hot-Rod “Sadie Damnation” has a custom hand tooled leather pickguard and arm-rest.

    Can’t express what a pleasure it was having Rick do this leather for me. He’s such a talented dude, as well as enthusiastic! He was gracious and kept me updated throughout the process.

    I also added a solid stainless-steel front roller from Callaham and a Duane Eddy fat handle to the Bigsby.

    This Guitar is killer! She plays great, sounds great, and looks badass!

    Definitely the coolest that I’ve seen, but beauty is in the broken eye of the beholder.

    I’m not personally a fan of the pirate thing.......but everything else here is incredible. What a cool finish look, and I love all the hardware. Again - ain’t my personal thing........but you did a killer job on this highly stylized build! Great work!

    I love how it all hangs together - from the look of the finish, to the leather work, to the skull heads. It's definitely a statement Tele, and it sure beats my Tele, because I don't have one. ;)

    Pirates walk the plank, they don't usually play one as well!

    It's definitely not for everyone, but thanks for the kind words Tony!

    Also, these noiseless pickups are still rocking my world! The bridge does everything a tele bridge pickup is supposed to do, but there's never an icepick. The neck pup BOOMS, but there's still plenty of definition to be heard.

    Q. How much does it cost for a pirate to get his ears pierced?

    You’re the first to make a comment about it. I’ve been going back thru the Enterprise Series. It’s a fun ride.
