I don't know. Just a random tele pic.
Just funning. You sounded terrific.
I have this "tele" I made from one of the discovered Gretsch Astro Jet bodies and they have a control cavity the size of a swimming pool.
That's the nature of a passive circuit. They are limited and crude and why so many players leave everything on 10 & control things from the amp or...
Ahem. There's only one guitar you can use to play that stuff. :D
We have bad roads here. Maybe potholes are why our tube amps all break down. :D
Pretty simple stuff for me. We don't play very loud lol.
Epi 339, VHT Special 6, 2x10 with some old speakers, tuner, trem, delay, boost.
They're not ignorant. Most own many amps but the ones they grab to play shows aren't the vintage Fenders. The Trademark 60s, Quilters and the like...

And I have the radius cut on the fretboard.
The eye in...
The router gouge came out in the sanding!
And a neck tenon is born.
It's basically a PRS style neck joint....
I love my modern Hipshot tuners. Light, smooth and stable.
This was my dad's. He bought it new in 46.
That's beautiful. Nice work.
You should be able to find the screws at any hardware store. #8x2" in your case.
Pickguard? Maybe trans black flame maple.
