Based on a superb one piece Swamp Ash Guitarbuild® body here’s my Hybrid Telecaster.

I first stained the body in deep-blue and lightly sprayed it with PU varnish, to finish the process. I wet-sanded several times with different grades and applied two different polish pastes to give a light gloss effect. You can nicely feel the wood grain under the fingers.

The guitar is done and it’s now a Hybrid Telecaster with two very powerful Humbuckers, Seymour Duncan SH6 in bridge and Kent Armstrong Rocker HRO, a thick " Chunky C " Mighty Mite USA neck with matching headstock and a very heavy Gotoh Japan trem block for a lot of power and sustain.
