Hey everyone! I have always wanted to build a guitar and since the Tele is my favorite it made sense that’s what I’d attempt. I have some experience working with wood but not at this level. I have limited tools but am slowly getting things together. I knew this would be the best place to get the advice I needed. I purchased a 3 piece sugar pine blank from Marc at Gilmer Wood Co in Portland Oregon. I found some 1/2 inch mdf templates on ebay that I plan to use for the build. I am open to any tips and guidance. Especially regarding working with the sugar pine. I will be posting pictures as I go along. Thank you guys in advance. Merry Christmas!
