Stroup Tele that thinks its a Jag

This is a handmade T-type guitar from Stroup Guitars currently being offered for sale on eBay. Made from Canadian Maple and with solid brass metalwork, by the maker's own admission it looks a little rough round the edges, rugged even, but I think this is part of its charm. The maker also mentions that he was inspired to build this having played a Jag for many years, and indeed this guitar does feature metal plates and Jaguar-like controls. Whether these controls include the Jaguar's now legendary "strangle switch", I couldn't say. Also it's a shame there's no Jag-style trem.
