Nice looking guitars! I especially love the last three. Wish I had the funds.

Did you build these yourself?

Thanks. Yes, building Teles has sort of become my hobby. Luckily I've sold a bunch of them, and quite a few people now have hired me to build them one that matches their wishlist for a custom guitar.

Are these Fender Teles? If not, it might be more appropriate to label them as 'T-Style'. I build my bodies from scratch in the shape of Telecasters but don't label them as such. Just sayin'...

Thanks so much for your wise and helpful input. What does the "T" in 'T-style' represent?

It means it's styled after a Fender Telecaster but is not a Fender and I don't think it's proper to use someone else's model name. I've been to court as an expert witness many times when unsuspecting buyers have bought something they think is something else just because of the way it looks. To me, it should be made very clear in your advertisement that these are not Fender guitars and you have no affiliation with Fender. If you remember, Leo had to start making 'Nocasters' because he infringed on Gretsch's 'Broadcaster' name. Call it what you want as long it doesn't infringe on someone else's rights.

What the world needs are more snitches and hall monitors running around telling people how to behave.

Speaking as a guitar player who leans more towards Teles than anything else, it is generally accepted and perfectly appropriate to call a T style a Tele.
Speaking as someone who owns a LOT of Teles, more than one of them built by Nick, I'd put his guitars up against any of em from my 51 on up.
Furthermore, if you don't have constructive input why muck up someone else's ad?
Bad form.
And Nick would never whine or complain about this, but I happen to know he's moving a bunch of stuff right now to help cover some medical bills in his family.
Nick, I'm gonna message you about one of these!

In retrospect, I should have started a discussion about this subject elsewhere - for that I apologize, but I still think it's a subject ripe for discussion. I wish Mr. Koff all the best.....'nuf said.

Delighted it got there safely and you like it, Scott! That's Bunnynose Guitars No. 62. I called her "Blacky IV," but you can call her "Betty" if you want, although this is actually Betty, or was she "Nancy?" Yeah, "Nancy..."

Nick, how do the light Paulownia bodies sound compared to a light Ash body? Is it the same, similar or completely different? I realize that each individual body has its on tone, but what I'm wanting to know is whether the Paulownia body Tele's ever sound like the light Ash body Teles.

These particular setups sound as tele or more tele than quite a few ash teles I've heard. And everyone who has bought one loves theirs.
