    Here are 2 more Tele builds I just completed. Both White Pine, one is tinted blue and the other translucent white. Both finished with lacquer. Enjoy!!

    I could not resist buying some walnut at the lumber yard and made those:

    Just got to find something to do with all those guitars :)

    Enjoy

    Dang, that's gorgeous work! Are you using licensed necks or genuine Fender, just out of curiosity.

    Thank you very much. Those are neck that I find used on adds and/or liquidation. I get them and refinish/fret job on them to make them feel good and nice. That's until I finally get the courage to build my own.

    That blue tinted one is gorgeous! What exactly did you use to finish it? I’d like a guitar that color.

    Also, where’d you get the white pine you used, that also looks great!

    Awesome job!

    Thank you, I used saman waterbased stain then finished it with many coats of lacquer.

    The white pine comes from the local lumber yard, the owner is a guitar enthusiast and keep a lot of nice wood for building.
