Since I was a tiny little kid in elementary school, I've always been a drummer, and throughout my life from that point I have improved as a drummer but have learned next to nothing about music itself, so I believe it's best to start young while i'm still young. I'm in a honors shop class where students are allowed to work on whatever they would like, and are graded on the quality of their work. While everyone else set about making furniture, I got the bright Idea to make something worthwhile, so I set about doing research online to build a guitar and I ultimately decided upon the Telecaster for two reasons. One, because i appreciate it's versatility and classic looks, and two, because there is a surplus of relatively inexpensive kits that are great for a beginner. I ended up ordering an infamous Saga kit off of amazon for about $100. I probably could've gone with something a little more high quality, but i'm on a tight budget at the moment, and simply do not have the funds to drop $700 on parts from Warmoth. Long story short, the Tele made a great shop project and after about a month and a half of work, I've created a beautiful heirloom. I painted the body in a matte metallic Pelham Blue nitrocellulose lacquer and for a little icing on the cake, I gave it a CBS headstock with a decal that replaces the "Fender" with my first name "Tyler." I would be happy to hear feedback, thank you for viewing.
