This guitar started off as a hot mess, but it turned out pretty good! Guy is asking $350 for it on my local CL stating that he drilled the neck holes wrong, but it holds tune and plays well. Right. I was interested because I knew he had some quality parts. MJT LPB reliced nitro body, reliced Allparts neck, Fender Custom Shop Nocaster pickups, tweed thermometer case, etc., etc. Anyway, I get in touch with him and set up a time to go check it out. He tells me only one other guy was interested in it, and he's from Canada. I wonder why. So I meet him and look at the guitar and it's everything he said it was. I popped the control plate and there were black and white cloth leads coming from the neck, and black and yellow cloth leads from the bridge, just like they're supposed to be. Reliced LPB body looks great. Not too overdone with some nice lacquer checking. Vintage spec neck looks a little yellow for my tastes, but the frets are good enough. I'm interested, but there are issues of course. Neck is misaligned, strings are almost half an inch above the fretboard. High E string is falling off the edge of the neck. Pickguard is crooked, control plate is crooked, intonation isn't even close. This was his first attempt at putting together a guitar, and basically everything he touched he screwed up. I point this stuff out and offer him $325, which he quickly accepts. So I get it home and start sorting it out. I take off the horrible mirror pickguard and fill in all the holes he drilled. Same with the control plate. The neck wasn't as bad as I thought. Only one hole was futzed up there. I got everything lined up and drilled new holes, adjusted the pickups and the intonation, and put an aged white PG on there. Not looking too bad! After a fret level, crown and polish the action dropped down there quite low. I plugged her into my amp and those Nocaster pups deliver classic Tele tone in spades! Sounds great clean or dirty, and the vintage spec neck is starting to grow on me. It's lightweight too. Lighter than any of my other Tele's. I like it! Some pics... Never had a reliced guitar before. Kind of like having an old pair of comfortable boots that I don't have to worry about too much if I scuff them.
