    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...

    GOT inspired Tele build.

    When the GOT series guitars came out I thought the Telecaster was the best of the bunch. However, at $25K that just wasn't going to happen. My son wanted me to build him a new telecaster so I suggested a GOT inspired build. Pickguard, control plate, and border inlay water jetted from .050" thick...

    1960 Tele Custom Ready for paint

    Here's my 1960 Telecaster Custom rebound and ready for paint. I'll have a thread about the entire process once I get it back from paint...which could be a while. The guitar was in desperate need of new binding and paint because of someone's foolishness years ago long before I purchased it. The...

    1966 Telecaster Regrets!

    Here's a few photos of a 1966 Telecaster I owned in the 90's. It was my first Tele and wasn't quite into them at the time. 100% original with factory wide frets and the flamiest neck I've ever seen on an old Tele. This is the one guitar I regret selling. You can't keep them all!! Enjoy!

    1960 Tele Custom, Alder or Ash?

    What would be the proper wood type for a 1960 Telecaster Custom in a sunburst finish? Alder or Ash? I'm thinking if it were a solid color like Dakota red it would be alder.

    I'm getting ready to route a binding channel on my Telecaster Custom I will be refinishing. For those of you that have actually routed a tele for binding, how do you get the router bit into the tight radius in the cutaway. I purchased the router bit and bearings from Stu Mac but the radius of...

    1960 Telecaster Custom Binding Thickness?

    I have a 1960 Telecaster Custom that was poorly refinished when I purchased it years ago. I want to re-bind and refinish it correctly but am not sure what size thickness the original binding should be. It appears that it's .250 wide but the thickness is hard to tell. When it was refinished it...

    Paint Spraying Rigs!

    I've refinished several guitars over the years using laquer car paint and my Binks 2001 siphon type spray gun with good results using a 6 hp compressor that puts out 13.5 cfm with about 50 feet of copper piping coming out of the compressor before my air/water separator/regulator to keep moisture...
