My name is Robert Eaton. I live in northeast Pennsylvania, and record under the name North Arrow. I've had many, many guitars over the years, but
about 15 years ago, I bought a modded '66 Tele and haven't parted with it since.
One of my big influences is BTO. Since I was about 10 years old, I was really into the photo of
Tim Bachman playing a double-cut Tele on the BTO II album cover. The only other double Tele, if memory serves me, was an old picture of a young kid playing one with block inlays.
My friend seems to remember it, too, but I can't seem to locate it anywhere.
Now, I know to a lot of people this would be sacrilege, but to
modders it should be pretty cool. I also have a reliced-out '52 black Esquire that I put together for under 200 bucks and it just smokes!!
My next project is to make a double-cut with two single coil Lawrence pickups, one in the bridge and one in the mid Nashville position. Just starting, so I don't even know what kind of wood
yet. Maybe mahogany.
Well, thanks for the site and keep moddin!!
