Spirit 76 "Keef" Tele Deluxe- $799 plus $60 shipping to USA

All my builds use a combination of vintage and new parts to create an affordable vintage style guitar with modern playability. I try to envision the guitar as something I would have customized 40 years ago, and as this one came together it looked like something Keith would have carried onstage in 1977. Natural wood finishes and brass hardware are a big part of that 70's esthetic and I use both in abundance.


Mahogany semi-hollow Tele body with maple top stained and finished with Nitrocellulose Clear Lacquer

WD Music 2 piece maple large 70's headstock neck
12" radius
Medium Jumbo Frets
1 11/16 nut width
Chunky C shape neck .89" at 1st fret, .91" at 12th
Nitrocellulose Aged Clear finish

Vintage Dimarzio Super Distortion Bridge Pickup

Vintage Dimarzio PAF Neck Pickup

Vintage NOS Schecter Brass Bridge

Vintage brass stoptail

Vintage 1970's wiring from 70's Ibanez (pots, caps, and position selector)

Gold Schaller Strap Locks

Custom 70's style sparkle control knobs

Kluson aged gold Tuners

Aged Brass control plate, neck plate

Brass Nut

Brass String Tree

Brass jack cup

Even brass screws holding on the pickguard

Custom handmade leather guitar strap

Weight: 7lbs 5oz

Body was stained with a reddish-orange stain before I bought it. It also had a Bigsby at some point. It had a cool look as is so I filled the old misaligned Bigsby posts with dowels and finished with Nitro Lacquer. Body had some shallow cracks that were filled as well.

The pickups are vintage Dimarzios. The Super Distortion had a damaged lead that has been lengthened. This Super Distortion was one of the NOS pickups being sold by a member her a year or so.

The neck is a WD Music Maple neck strayed with Nitrocellulose Lacquer and aged to give a comfortable, worn in feeling. Frets have been freshly dressed and action is set at 4/64" bass side and 3/64" treble.

I will install the buyers choice of either .009 or .010 Dunlop nickel wound strings.

This guitar plays and sounds great with fast, low action. If you get it home and you don't like it, send it back. I will give a full refund of the purchase price, buyer is responsible for return shipping

Thanks guys.
Actually, I won't do too well as that is just about my cost.:) It's just a hobby for me at this point, I just like creating something that other people think is cool and will get enjoyment out of. I was in a creative profession before staying home to raise my kids and this is just my current creative outlet.

Next up is a 70's tinged LP Jr.
