Tele Style Mahogany with Maple Cap 002
Hand made in the USA by Icarus Custom Shop exclusively for Thompson Guitar & Thrift. This listing is for the exact guitar body that is pictured and represented.
Here's something totally unique and exciting. Exactly like a Les Paul, this tele style body is mahogany with a book-matched flame maple top. Both woods are fully figured and stunning. The mahogany had deep reds, but far more figured and dynamic than you'll see in a mass-produced guitar. The flamed maple top, well, the pictures speak for themselves. Pictured both with and without naphtha applied to show full range of colors.
