    Haters look away... I need a telecaster body with a forearm contour that has binding. Not scraped or faux binding but real binding... anyone have a source?

    I'd think warmoth could do that.

    You mean like this?
    USA Custom Guitars made this body for me in 2011. I believe it was $575 finished.
    Top bound only. Double bound would look too weird and crowded with contours.

    That's interesting, with the binding on a contour, looks nice. I think I've seen a few bound tele bodies with a back contour, but a standard bound non contoured top and single bound. I can't think of many bound contoured tops I've seen, maybe it's more common than I think but I can't remember any. Must create a challenge or two for the builder.

    I didn't know it was possible until I asked the folks at USACG.
    I don't think I've seen another one.
