Very nice! I also own a Tele...say, is that a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails pup in the neck? How do you like it?
Not a Duncan. To be honest I can't recall the brand now. I installed the humbucker in the neck position and used a tone pot with a coil tap switch. The bridge is a duplicate of a mid 60's Alnico magnet, super hot. I wish I could remember the brand, they were known for disassembling old pickups that had particularly good sound and duplicating them down to the most minute detail. They did this at pretty reasonable prices. At one time I was heavily into guitar projects. I also did custom setups for people and played professionally.Very nice!

What year is the Custom?
Beautiful! My Breedlove Dread has a AAA Sitca spruce top, East Indian rosewood back and sides, Honduran mahogany neck and African ebony fretboard, headstock cover and bridge. The pickguard is ebony and was custom made to match the inlay on the fretboard.Here are some taken of a guitar built for me by my old college roommate Milton. Recently acquired. He made it from a mahogany that was from Manoa valley, solid AAA Sitka spruce top, curly maple binding, curly koa rosette, mahogany neck, etc. Gorgeous and it sounds wonderful. He said I needed to get back into guitar playing and decided to help inspire me. He said that I inspired him to build guitars after showing him the guitars I built many years ago. I posted this elsewhere in another thread, but forgot where.
Here's one shot from the Flickr album. I encourage you to look at the other shots of this beautiful instrument. https://www.flickr.com/gp/92624968@N02/P29k6P
