What is a CVC.
"I am using you; am I amusing you?" - Martha Johnson, What People Do For Fun
So... I checked out Warmoth, and they would build a double-bound Ash Tele (unfinished) for $275. I can apply clear top-coating for the Albert Collins vibe... neck humbucker... might be a nice project...
Probably end up running about $800 for the total project... Hmmmm...
Here is another picture:
These guitars are $4000.
Warmoth can also build the neck for $310 (finished with clear gloss). I could also look around for a MIM 21-fret neck...
Does anyone have experience spraying nitro over binding? Is there anything special you need to do?
Hmm.... the more I look into it I might have to go down the SQ CV route instead... doing the math I'm looking at $900 without a case... I can buy a USA Deluxe Tele for $1000 or so...
The first Fender I gassed after was a Closet Classic Daphne Blue Custom Tele. I still think it's the sex.

I want one of those squires bad. After the holidays.
I just finished doing a non-reliced "Andy Summers" conversion on a Squier CV Tele. I gave it a six-saddle bridge, a Duncan STK-T3B Tele Stack at the bridge, and a Duncan SH-1N '59er with a nickel cover at the neck. Everything was bought used off of eBay, except for a new '59er, and the whole thing cost $475. The Duncans give it an awesome tone for the price of admission.
If you have an itch to do such a conversion on one of those guitars, all I can say is "scratch that itch". You'll be glad you did.
