Keeping up the theme of firebranded guitars, here is my "Telecaster" which is a collection of parts.
Neck is a Squier of unknown vintage. Broad and loud, easy to play. A fistful.
Body is a Cal Custom, bought at Banjo Center for 5 bucks.
Other parts are collected up, most after the fire event, which destroyed the stuff that was on the guitar at the time. Tuners, nut, frets etc are fire survivors.
On the back of the neck, note the slightly lighter spot about a third of the way down. That's where the guitar was leaning against my old desk.
The fingerboard around the first 2 frets or so is actually slightly scalloped by the heat. The neck is not just sooty - it's scorched. The strat in the other thread is mostly covered in soot - I sprayed a bunch of layers of light varathane so as to stabilize and preserve it. Soot is very oily… you can't really "finish it" - just hopefully seal it up enough to prevent rubbing off. This guitar was actually scorched - the black areas are verging on charcoal - the finish that was on there blackened in the heat.
The "tele" was not much good before the fire. John Carruthers saw it afterward and for the cost of a couple of pickups (Duncan Vintage something or others) and a setup he very kindly "restored" the guitar, possibly not realizing it was not so great before.
Now it is a very enjoyable, very playable and absolutely unique-looking guitar. My main stage axe.
