Looks cool just like that.
Nice transformation, and very little spent by the sound of it. Congrats.
I like CBS headstocks when they are upside down! Here is a Partscaster that I just assembled. It cost me about $850, but it is based on a 2014...
Very, very nice guitar. Congratulations, it must feel good.
Wow, nice shot. you have a future in the tunneling industry.
Yep, moved to Minneapolis area from Southeast England 12 years ago and never looked back.
Mockup looks fantastic by the way. Looking forward to...
I am loving this thread, the guitar looks great so far. A P90 version of this would be sweet too!
Great looking tele, love the red/black contrast.
I just checked the online configurator and you can get a mahogany/mahogany version with P-90 routing. Maybe they added more options?
Les Paul Style jack plate would cover it up:
Love build threads, love Les Pauls, can't wait for the next installment. Thanks for sharing this with us preeb.
Funny thing for me is .... I never wanted a Tele. I have a gorgeous Les Paul and a nice Strat and was blissfully happy playing them. Then I needed...

Thanks mellecaster, that helps a lot. Not going for 'authentic vintage', just wanted to get it approximately where Fender would put it.
I am down to the finishing touches on my partscaster and just need to fit the vintage (button type) string tree to the headstock. Could someone...
I used the nut as well, with the socket flush it makes it easy to plug in 'blind'.
That is going to be one gnarly guitar. Is that really the finished shape? Interesting.
First build, $120 budget, and it plays. I would say you did really good. Well done. Looking forward to the neck build!
Looks interesting. I love build threads as every one I read gets me more ready to try putting cutter to wood myself.
I was totally paranoid about getting the neck and bridge perfectly lined up. I made some dowels that fitted into the string through holes to hold...
