    Looking for a custom part

    TESI makes great kill switches. I put one in a custom plate I had made for my sons Tele!

    GOT inspired Tele build.

    The Turtle people didn’t make the neck. Musikraft did @ $690. Certainly not the cheapest route but a stunning neck will cost you!!

    GOT inspired Tele build.

    As far as my shop goes it’s just a garage with scattered equipment. I’ll take a few photos later.

    GOT inspired Tele build.

    Thank you all for the kind words! Here’s a video of my son with a song he wrote and plays all instruments but keys on. You’ll see glimpses of this guitar throughout. He recorded all guitar parts with this guitar.

    GOT inspired Tele build.

    Yes, I machined the entire body from a blank piece of wood. I had the patterns made from an Autocad DXF file out of 1/4” aluminum.

    GOT inspired Tele build.

    Switch seems easy to use and no noticeable popping noises. It’s not used a lot either so time will tell how robust the switch is.

    Bigsby Autocad file for Telecaster?

    Let's say you just drilled through the headstock..

    Furniture scratch stick is your answer. I’ve done a lot of cabinet work and the wax sticks you get when purchasing new cabinets fill brad nail holes incredibly well. Cheap, easy and un-noticeable.

    Can you guys help me date this tele?

    Not sure of much else but the switch. It appears to be a CRL1452 from the 50’s/early 60’s. If so it’s worth ~ 250-300 bucks.

    Repairing a vintage CRL 1452

    Years ago I was looking for a CRL 1452 for my 1960 Telecaster Custom and came across a broken one with an extra CRL 2190 switch for parts for $15. The 2190 is basically the same switch except it has temporary positions for 1 and 3 and is fixed in position 2. I bought them and put them away while...

    Any masterbuilt owners here?

    Love me that Tremoverb but you’re right, it weighs a ton! I recently bought a Suhr PT15 IR that I’m really liking. And only 24lbs.
