Hey, nice combination of nickel and brass (I am assuming). If the control knobs are indeed brass, could you share the source of these fine looking pieces?
I will be starting my first build of a Tele partscaster soon and am in the process of selecting all the parts.
Going with Lollar Vintage T pickups and an Emerson control set. Body and neck from USACG.
Well, all you folks out in T style partscaster land, here's a photo of my first attempt at a partscaster. Just finished assembling it this morning and took it to my luthier for a pro setup.
It took way too long to get this finish done to an acceptable level. I did the ebony grain filler, shellac for seal coat, water based walnut dye and finished with a single coat of SC Johnson wax for a satin type finish.
Also happens to be my first Tele. It has a few more dings and a Dimarzio zebra PAF now, and a modified Esquire circuit. African mahogany Warmoth body, Warmoth neck, all shot in clear lacquer.
I have something similar going on with my last build.
I posted this somewhere else but it fits here too. My paulownia and pine Tele's both finished with Tru Oil.
Here is a new view of the guitar is just finished.
Wow. Just . . . Wow!
My new baby. USACG Ash body, satin wipe on poly, Allparts TMO-C neck, custom black guard. GFS pups.

You're just one enormous pickguard away from the Peavey T-60 look!
Stripped to natural Ash, my 2014 '50s Road Worn. I switch between black and white guards.
I put Nocasters and USA electronics in there. It's a beast.
Looks great! what have you finished it with?
The prior owner stripped it and covered it in stain. Badly. I picked it up cheap. He knew he'd done a bad job.
I sanded it all back and used boiled linseed oil. Then later thinned artist shellac. Then I used 000 wire wool to dull back to a very light sheen.
Thats gorgeous!!! Very different! !!
