I have been without a tele for a while. I love the guitar, i just have a hard time finding one that i like, so i thought id have a go at putting one together. I always loved the look of the double bound custom teles from the 60's, but im not crazy about the skinny necks and small radius fretboards. I started with a huge baseball bat allparts neck i traded a pedal for from a buddy. From there it was a gradual process of gathering the rest of the parts for it. Some things were donated by a couple awesome friends, and my girlfriend got me a gift certificate for a music shop where i got most of the hardware and electronics. The body arrived from rock audio last night, so i pulled out the tools and got busy! Impressed with how well the neck fit the body, considering it is two different aftermarket parts. Going to take it to band practice tonight to put it through its paces!
