I built a set neck tele but it was never as good as my special, I have just built a thinline that I really like and I never really like f style builds before but I'm building more of them, jazzmaster is coming
Nice guitar like that trem, my friend made a jazz tele that was superb
Well, clearly you like Teles more than the OP suggests, because yiyr nuce custom guitar is about 95% Tele, with the changes being minor tweaks. The headstock is an inverted. tweaked Strat head. I like your guitar -- for the same reason I like Teles, which it largely emulates.
I have not built guitars in ten years. Too much to do at work (I used to work at a wharf building sailing yachts)
It was a friend who got me started again. He wanted me to help him build a Tele bass.
So I thought, we build them together. I show him how it´s done and he can learn.
We had a good time, always with a beer in our hands.
Body: one-piece mahogany
Pickups: StewMac Parsons Street P90, Chinese Toaster copy
Bridge: Schaller roller bridge
Jazzmaster vibrato (probably chinese)
All the wood comes from my job, except the fretboard
even though that wasn't a real beer you were drinking, since it wasn't a coors, it seems as though ya'll did indeed have fun. that's really what it's all about. and now you each have a guitar that will spring memories of the builds everytime ya'll play. i like that. well done
