looks insane! I Agree though a change of hardware would suit it better.

I kinda like the white pickguard for some reason, though I would have expected it to be a rusty steel plate or something instead. I think a bit of sanding to the chrome parts would help though.

Really? Can't see it myself, apart from it being a Tele.

It looks really cool!

I'd say brass or copper pickguard - and never clean it!
If i was to say something, i'd say the neck is too clean - but playability has to come 1st.
