Actually it was a 62', note the single ply pickguard....
Flat surface make it slabboard, slab piece of rosewood mean slabboard, laminated or veneer fingerboards thinner and have a curved bottom.
I already mentioned it's not period correct and this is not make it a ''veneer'' board.
Actually Cropper's Telecaster is a 64
And that one probably a 63 not a slabboard as you can see:
The guitar in the first picture is NOT the same guitar as the one in the bottom photo, the one on the bottom has a single ply guard, while the one in the upper photo has a 3 ply guard....
As i said. 63 and 64 or 65 ? None of them slabboard. But he had a Esquire with slabboard.
Single ply guards like slab boards lasted only until May of 1962...
Well my neck is nearing completion....here are some photo's of the build in progress.....Dominick's attention to detail is amazing....can't wait to wrap my hand around it!!
The photos of the side and back are from the shaping of the profile, and the dots are of course genuine CLAY dots....
Look forward to seeing this finished and your opinions of the final product, coming on nicely!
I see a little flame in the maple.
That 50 year old Brazilian rosewood looks great!
Are you going with completely vintage specs or something different?
For the most part totally vintage, but it will have 6105 frets, which is of course a wider fret that the skinny Fender originals....other that it's going to true to the originals. The guitar that Dominick is building for me will also be straight vintage in both details and construction. I have never spoken to ANYONE that is more fanatical and obsessive about the vintage details of both Strats and Tele's than Dominck....I love it when he sends me photos of guitars. I also love talking politics with him, his perspective is quite interesting, considering he's an expat Brit living in Spain, far different perspective than my American friends!!! I love him, crazy bloke that he is!!!
No, not RS Guitarworks, Dominick's website is here and his stuff is incredible....
This just came in...it's looking really good....
Sorry, so are you having just a neck, or a complete guitar?
Both actually, this is the neck Dominick is making as a replacement for my 1959 Custom. He is also building me a 59-60 tele, in tele blond, or as my friend Pete calls it, hens__t yellow.....
I am wondering if they can supply just necks or only whole guitars.
Not sure what you mean by " supply "? If you mean in any kind of quantity I would guess no, but I certainly don't speak for Dominick! But bear in mind, he is just one guy, and he has order's for guitars. He only builds strats and teles as far as I know. He's an expat Brit living in Spain, and he KNOWS his vintage Fenders, let there be no doubt....and he's a great guy with a wicked sense of humor!
Well what i mean by supply is do they produce (if thats a better word for you) whole guitars for customers or can they produce just a neck for someone.
I can't speak for Dominick, your best bet would be to check out his website and send him an email. Tell him what you want, he likes detail and is extremely detail oriented. I can tell you that he's a pleasure to talk to and work with!
His stuff is pretty much made by hand. He cuts both the bodies and necks. Nothing is pre made. He does it all....I love the shape of the headstock.....
Ready for spraying...
Almost finished should be in the mail by next Monday....can't wait, it looks wonderful, and that IS a gorgeous piece of Brazilian rosewood on that fingerboard!
