    I had a tele sitting around for a while and never bonded with because it had vintage frets that had been leveled one to many times. So I started buying parts here and there and this is what i came up with. Perfect setup and plays and sounds like a dream. Let me know what you guys think.

    body- fender reissue 3pc alder

    Neck- musikraft 1 piece
    10in radius
    thick u-shape .980 at 1st fret /1.00 at 12th fret
    SS frets (I didnt order the neck so i dont have all the exact specs)
    bone nut

    pick ups-fender CS nocaster

    electronics- R&S wiring

    hardware- Taipan 304 stainless bridge w/ brass compensated saddles
    304 neck plate, switch plate and knobs
    gotoh adjustable height vintage style locking tuners

    I have a nice plain MIM Tele neck that would be a lot more fun and I am willing to trade even for that quilty neck, all that figuring must blind you and impair your ability to play.

    In all seriousness, that's a sharp guitar, very nice.
