I did a search and after the 5th page I didn't find anybody starting a thread like this. I've seen No. 1s, Highways, Squiers, etc. but not partscasters. There are some pics on the gallery but I think some pics are hosted elsewhere like Photobucket and other forums. Personally, I would really like to build a couple or more partscasters and would really benefit from the vast experience of this forum. Pics would be great. Some specs and brief details of the body, neck, pickups and hardware. I'll start. My first and only (but not last) partscaster. A standard black body I bought from eBay sometime last year. The person I bought it from claimed it is a US body but I doubt it. I think the body is Alder. Neck is a Fender MIM Modern C shaped maple fretboard. Pickups are custom Brierlys which is local to Australia. These pickups are hot and a bit darker sounding which I like. Not much twang. Bridge is Gotoh 6 saddle which I'm planning to replace with Wilkinson Brass compensated one. CTS pots and CRL switch. 3 ply black pickguard. This Tele is suited more for Rock and Ballads but not metal.
