My first telecaster was one that I picked up in a small shop on the East Coast. It just had a unique quality to it so I grabbed it. I tore it down and found that it has no markings anywhere on the body nor the neck, just a parts caster of an unknown builder. I replaced the electronics on it and it remains a favorite, but I still am not certain what wood the body is? I originally thought it was a Sugar Pine when I bought it due to what appeared to be sap line under the finish in one spot, but it is too heavy for that at 8.2 lbs. The pattern just throws me as it doesn't really look like Ash to me nor the alder of my later project. Anyone have a good idea what it might be?
