    I really like the Fender Buckcaster but couldnt afford the crazy money for them. I decided to create my own. Wanted to share my own version on a Thinline body. 20170828_091205.jpg 20170828_091205.jpg 20170828_091229.jpg 20170828_091205.jpg 20170828_091221.jpg 20170828_091229.jpg 20170812_215432.jpg

    I have a friend who is a luthier. We did the paint in his shop paintbooth. We used single stage mettalic auto paint. It was applied with a gravity fed spraygun. Getting the lines straight was achieved using auto pinstriping tapes. Was my first build. It is not perfect. I could have wet sanded a few areas better. We used auto clear coat with a hardener. 2 coats.

    I found that online at WDmusic.com. was a little pricey for plastic. But I think they are custom made there.

    Beautiful job! I've always wanted a standard Buck Owen's Tele in my stable which is kinda funny because I'm really not into signature guitars.
