Airbrushed Vintage SG

Local luthier Paul Howarth recently repaired and resprayed this Vintage SG200 guitar. It is fitted with all Wilkinson hardware and is for sale here. I like the look of it very much and I’m keen to see a Telecaster that he is finishing in a similar fashion.

Leather scratchplates

When I played in a Country & Western band there were several full body leather covers for telecasters. I have to admit I was tempted more than once!
If I had a strat I’d also be tempted by this simple but effective basketweave scratch  plate. There are some more extreme examples for strats and teles too, as well as a very good range of guitar straps, again ranging from the simple to the extreme.
