Well I have finally decided to dive into the world of building (or putting together) my own guitar. I ordered the parts from Warmoth on Monday, and hopefully will have them sometime next week - if I'm lucky. Decided to go with a cream color body, routed for a mini humbucker in the neck, strat single coil in the middle, and a normal tele pickup in the bridge. Giong with a vintage bridge, although with 6 saddles instead of the 3. For the neck.. It has a maple fretboard (just flat finish, not the shiny stuff lol). The standard thin size (which I hear is not as thin as a neck that Fender would say thin). Hopefully its not too thin. Going with a 9.5" radius. I fought with myself about what radius I wanted to go with - but I am so comfortable with my strat that has a 9.5" radius, I figured it would be best to stick with that. The frets of 6105. Still debating on the pickguard, but I believe I might go with a black paisley pickguard. Going to wire it up "Brent Mason." Have a Seymour Duncan Mini Humbucker in the neck, Hot Stack in the middle, and Vintage Stack in the bridge. Total costs with shipping and all, just a little under $900. I know these guitars won't have the resell value of a Fender, etc.. and I'm perfectly fine with that. I will try and post pictures once I get everything in and start building it! Any advice from you guys on this build? I know I will probably need to level the frets a little, but besides that, It seems like things should go pretty smooth? Also would love to see some of the Telecasters that you guys have put together.
