A while back I picked up a beat up old Affinity Telecaster for my girlfriend to learn to play on. She had dreams of refinishing it in transparent red with a pearloid guard. I told her I'd do it, but never got around to it, until I came across this loaded Chinese body from @JethroTech.

It's a semi transparent red over a nice bookmarked flame veneer. Single black binding. I threw her Affinity neck, which needs a refinish to get rid of the spray paint on the headstock. It's getting loaded with my spare set of Classic Vibe Custom pickups asap. I might talk her into giving it the Muddy Waters treatment with the blackface amp knobs.

Don't give it to her until Tuesday. Think of the flowers/chocolate money you'll save. And hey, it's red, how can you go wrong?

GLWS (where S doesn't always have to stand for sale, eh?) ;)

I'm taking her to see Colin James tomorrow night. I'm hoping that gives her some inspiration
