I'm in Texas visiting my Mom and I was surprised by my nephew Matt with a peek at the Telecaster body he is painting for me. Matt is a great artist who has been building and painting custom cars for Hollywood Big Shots like Jay Leno and some other celebs who were jerks so I'm not giving them any free mentions.
Matt was telling me a story of Leno showing off Howard Hughes's "1925" Doble Steam Engine one day at his garage. (Pic below)

This Tele body is the last piece in a long slow guitar project. All the pieces have been collected from cool places (to me) from Houston to Minneapolis. For example there are parts from Russo's Music when it was next to the Funny Bone Comedy Club years ago, a special place to me.
Matt moved back to Texas and found time to work on this Tele body. It's a pin-up girl thing and it's going to be awesome.
