See the 1961 Strat build posted on this forum.
Man I love watching your builds and the sounds that this Tele's kicking out. (player is no slouch either!)
Can you tell us what the guitar was plugged into? Nice website too, gonna' check it more later on.
Thanks. It was plugged into a Fender-Deluxe reissue amp (a red one).
What you hear is the pure sound of the guitar, no pedals, just a little crunch from the amp input gain.
Man, that is some real sweetness coming out of that Tele.!! Nice work Gil.
O U T S T A N D I N G
thank you so much for inspiration, education, and generosity
Awesome, man. Just awesome.
Thanks teleblues001. Yeah it came out sweet didn't it.
Thank you beff_jack. My pleasure.
Thanks and nice hearing from you again.
All the best
Dumb question that everybody here but me knows the answer to :
What is the volume knob pot/circuit that is on Chita's guitar (phenomenal BTW) - keeps the tone the same as you roll back volume ?
Is that called a treble bleed ?
I gotta get one...
Really cool stuff. I spent a bunch of time last night and this morning checking out this build and the other thread on the strat. Awesome stuff. It's amazing to see the knowledge, craftsmanship and tools working in concert to produce such a wonderful result. I hope you'll continue to share future builds!
Thank you TWork. I sure will.
Thanks for the info Gil and speak of the devil - the guitar I want to add that volume pot to is my cheapo pine body 2 pickup Esquire w/ a 1" neck !
Crazy how much sustain/volume/tone went up when I put that neck on there.
Even w/ a truss-rod it's still only 6 lbs 2 oz.
Thanks again !
Apologies for intruding on Preeb's build thread, but I wanted to ask about the finish on that black pine Esquire of Mike's. I love the way the texture of the wood grain is still visible even though it's an opaque finish. Any info on how you did that?
Great jobs!! I hope my walnut telecaster looks at the end close to yours.
Sorry if my english is not good enough
Bought the body from milocj, a member here.
He used the time honored old-world technique of 1 or 2 coats w/ a rattle can !
Every time I think of putting on a couple proper coats of a hard enamel (or black w/ a clear) I realize I couldn't play it for a couple days and I blow it off.
I like it the way it is.
wow, just read all this thread! amazing stuff.
