My bank account is weeping, but I'm like a kid near Christmas time waiting for all these parts to arrive. Hopefully I haven't bitten off more than I can chew for my first build (have only done wiring/setup in the past). Shopping list incoming: Warmoth swamp ash tele body with shoreline gold satin finish (picked this up as a screamin' Deal!) Warmoth modern/vintage tele neck maple with slight birdseye, satin nitro finish Seymour Duncan Hot Rails bridge Seymour Duncan Hot Tele neck CTS/Alpha Pots/Orange Drop/Switchcraft Parchment pickguard Fender brushed chrome locking tuners Fender USA 3 saddle compensaded tele bridge (ashtray) I had the pickups and electronics in my squier affinity as a project, but decided it was finally time to build a real axe instead of a hatchet. I may eventually phase the pickups out for something more vintage, but it's one expense I don't have to foot right now. Things I'm most nervous about and can use advice: -Drilling out the 2 guide pegs for the fender/schaller style tuners (the tuner hole itself will be correct from warmoth) and making sure the tuners are lined up. -Drilling the string tree hole -Drilling the strap lock holes -Basically any drilling -Filing the nut properly Everything else I think I'm ok with. Cheers!
