I should probably take better pictures one of these days, but these should suffice for the time being.

As for details...
Hollow mahogany Stratocaster with Indian rosewood top, clear gloss
Indian rosewood neck with CBS headstock, LSR nut, fret size 6230, Planet Waves auto-trim tuners, Ziricote fingerboard
5-way switch, master tone, master volume, neck pickup is a humbucker size recreation of a Charlie Christian pickup, middle is a single coil recreation and the bridge is a humbucker based on the CC pickup from Vintage Vibe.

Hey I'm almost as good a photographer as you.

And we need CLIPS, those of us under born after the humbucker was invented don't know what the hell those CCs sound like!  :)

Yeah, I'm not sure where the tip went... I had two of them and lost them both. The pickups are Charlie Christian pickups from Vintage Vibe. I'll have to dig out a camera or something for clips, but the next best thing would be a recording of the real Charlie Christian. [youtube=425,350]z-U1-AB_vnM[/youtube]

Playing through my dad's deluxe reverb reissue, it does sound remarkably similar to the real thing.
