Indie #11 - 'Super T' natural

Want a hot-rodded Telecaster at an affordable price but can't be bothered to build one? Buy an Indie Super-T! You get the Tele style body but with a humbucker at the bridge and a strat neck pickup as standard.

Body: Solid basswood / Agathis
Body Top: Flame
Body Binding: None
Neck: Hard maple
Neck Binding: None
Neck Construction: Bolt-on neck
Fingerboard: Rosewood
Fingerboard Inlay: Dots
Headstock Binding: None
Head Machine: Diecast gold
Top Nut: Graphite
Bridge: TC standard
Hardware: Gold or chrome
Pickups: 1 humbucker/1 single
Electrics: 1 volume, 1 tone, 3-way lever
Truss Rod: Standard
Scale Length/Frets: 648mm(25.5")/22 frets
Finish: Natural

This recent Super-T is closer to the trad Tele than my black one, which has a mahogany body and lacks the binding too. I think I prefer the bound mahogany body, which has a hard straight edge to the top, but this is a nice variation on the Tele theme.
