Hi, I am new to this forum. To some of you I may be just a kid but I want to built myself an exact copy of a Fender Telecaster - I have wood and I have a router machine but I don't have a routing template to use. I couldn't find any free pickup and neck pocket routing plans on the net to make my Telecaster routing template out of. The cheapest plans I found on a web site - they asked $15 for the plans but I live in Europe and they were asking $18 for shipping alone. Problem is that I couldn't make my parents give me $33 to spend on a sheet of paper. So I started searching and I found many free guitar plans on the net but there were no Tele plans. Do you know any free plans for the routing of the Tele pickup cavities and the neck pocket? I am also trying to get myself a Squier Telecaster from somewhere which I intend to use to make my template for the build but there are two problems: I can't find a Squier Tele in my town and I read on this forum that Squiers are not even close to original Fenders - they have larger control cavities, different routing for the pickups, different size pickguards that don't fit an original Tele... I really want my guitar to be an exact copy of a Fender, I want even the non-visible parts and everything under the pickuard to be the same as on a vintage Tele, so if what I read here is right, I can't use that Squier as a guide. Another problem for me would be buying all the necessary hardware and electronics parts after I have built the guitar but that's a different story. At first I will concentrate on the wood work. So, if you know of any sites offering free Tele plans, please share. Thanks and sorry for my bad English - I am learining it in school.
