I took a couple of pics for another site, and thought I post em here too, as there are more than a couple of other pickers here.
Asian import of unknown origin - determined by no serial #, crap hardware and fret edges that would slice your hand....bad.
Ridicously cheap! I have done a lot of minor luthier repair and setups, so put in Fender Custom shop noiseless Pups, Stew-mac upgrade bridge saddles and for now the tuning pegs are not a problem. Straightened the neck, filed and crowned the frets and dressed the edges, and it's "safe" to play.
Neck is mahoghany/maple laminated neck thru design on a mahoghany body, with a "cap" of redwood burl. The bridge reflected the flash bad, so no post on the lower portion that is burled...also cracked from lack of attention from wherever to here.
The Universe is inlaid all the way from 2nd to last fret to headstock in mother of pearl and abalone... I have never seen another, but again.... it was not custom built..... just a lucky find for a sucker for that Tele vibe!
Any other proud 6string owners?
btw - for those scrutinizing the pics....yes, I broke the hi E off and was too lazy to put one on for this quickie photo op
