When I was playing I usually comped my own solos. I'd get the feel and duplicate the main licks and passages to keep it sounding familiar for the audience, but rarely played a solo the same way twice. The Allman Brother's Rambling Man was one of the very few exceptions. All or nothing!

I also play that song note for note. As well as Melissa and Blue Sky...but a little creative license can be taken on the latter.;):dance3:

Here's the short-scale Tele. The Alder body and pickguard are slightly smaller while the hardware remains full size. The 60's Jag neck has had the headstock reshaped to a Tele style.

I overlaid the headstock with curly maple and applied a custom decal. The serial number starts like a Fender, Z6 to denote a 2006 build. The rest of the serial number should be familiar, I'll let you sort it out. The Tele shape is somewhat elongated due to the machine head spacing.

Here it is next to a full sized Tele, another of my builds affectionately referred to as the Brothelcaster. The size difference is more obvious when they're standing next to each other. The narrower body width and shorter length are pretty apparent. It's also about 1/8" thinner.

Oh yes! My guitar is my life. I'm learning to play bluegrass guitar, it's been my best project during the pandemic. I started on my husband's Martin D-18 but after a while felt that my smaller body size didn't agree with a dreadnought so I bought this beautiful Martin 000-18 (same woods, smaller body). I love my guitar and I love to play it.
