Did you ever wonder what rocket scientists do in their time off?  Here is what Rick does.  And yes, he’s literally a rocket scientist.  He built this beautiful Tele using an Aperio Ponderosa Pine body. This was about 2 years ago and sadly because I was busy I forgot to post the pictures of his excellent work.  He did a beautiful job and recently a customer sent me a link to a very similar Tele that was advertised for $7000.00!  That is extreme but who knows these days?  And I like Rick’s better!
