Taking inspiration from the phrase, “The Telecaster: The Plank That Made Good” please be upstanding ‘Blackguard Three’. The dry pine was such good wood, with such great tonal characteristics I couldn’t let any go to waste – hence ‘The Plank’ , or the nickname that seems to have stuck, ‘The Mutt’. The obvious choice of guitar to build with these offcuts was a Telecaster style. It just seemed the right thing to do. So here it is in all its ragged glory – Blackguard Three: A telecaster style guitar with handwound pickups and the bite & twang you’d expect.
