    Nice price! Some specs missing (wood type, weight, etc.) but this could be a keeper. Reverb listing.

    Neck and body by the incredible D.Stanley from North Carolina. So it's all Fender except for the body and neck. For me, it would have to be a guitar I could play before buying. A non-Fender tele body isn't as big of an issue as the neck. You never know what a custom neck is going to be like. JMO

    I don't often chime in on these kind of threads but that pick guard fit around the lower horn looks terrible in that image. It looks better in the listing. I'm no fan of the finish on the neck nor the headstock shape nor the truss rod adjustment at the headstock. A Squier would look better.

    Is that a crack running down the back seam of the body? Might just be a trick of the light...

    You can kind of see it in a few images. The thing is covered in orange peel. The neck and body need a wet-sanding or five.

    What a piece of crap. I can't believe people actually try to get away with this stuff.

    "All fender parts" is a red flag.

    Partscasters are for building. Not for buying.

    If one of my finishes had that much orange peel, I wouldn't want my name associated with it. And look at the ripples in the fretboard finish!

    Also, the seller is touting this a '60s Telecaster? With a butterscotch finish, black guard, and NO ROSEWOOD FRETBOARD?

    Appears to be a wide glue joint.

    No, thank you...

    IF Fender guitars looked like this in the beginning, the professional players who were Leo’s guides would have laughed and we would not know what a Fender guitar WAS.
    Imho, the sum is worth much less than the cost of the parts that are attached to the wood.

    Sorry, no deal for me.

    It's NOTHING like a 60s Tele, not the body, not the tuners, not the neck, pickguard, NOTHING.

    I bought a Performer body, Allparts neck and ALL Fender parts. My total was $650 with all taxes and shipping and blows that guitar away for fit and finish.

    oh my god.. that headstock.

    Ive traced the tele pattern onto a Strat neck, cut it with a jigsaw.. and it came out so much better than this. And I am not a handy person. This one looks plain deformed.

    How interesting.

    That is one of my bodies and it's probably my neck, hard to tell.

    It certainly is not my finish work. Wonder how it made it's way to New Jersey. They're using personal information from my old website.
    I sold these parts a couple years ago from inventory that wasn't selected for finished projects. The body is poplar, which I only use for solid colors. It's the body on the right in the pic, see the knot left of the string thru holes and the green poplar grain on the right side. The glue line is off centered too. I remember this set. I made the body and neck and sold them as unfinished parts.
    I have no idea who the Reverb seller is. David Stanley

    Even the pics are crappy! Bridge plate isn't straight, tilts toward upper bout. Yuk.

    From the description:
    "The Body has been dyed with Zeda product. Neck and body and sealed and finished with Mohawk/Stew-Mac Nitrocellulose lacquers by D. Stanley of N Carolina. Ships from NYC where it has been maintained in a local recording studio. Never gives. Comes with bag,title extras and pickup case."

    Okay, wtf is 'Zeda product'. And what exactly 'never gives'...?

    An auto-correct of "never gigged"

    Wow, Thanks for chiming in. I hope I didn't offend you. I didn't mean to imply that you made that guitar, but re-reading my post, it comes off that way. I'm sorry if I offended you, really.

    The guitar is only as good as the assembler, no matter how good the wood is. My comment was about fit and finish, not about the raw parts.

    I love poplar for Telecasters, I think it gives excellent sustain. and the wood does take a solid color very well. The end grain is easy to work with and finish doesn't sink in like ash or pine.

    Unfortunately, the finish on that guitar on Reverb was clearly lacking.

    No offence taken.

    Obviously no prep work was done before they slopped on the finish. For example, in my shop photo you can see a router burn mark at the bass side of the neck pocket, it's still there in the Reverb pics under the clear coat, so not a lot of prep work.

    "All Fender parts"????
    Funny seller, aside from the lack of correct info and large amount of enthu$ia$m.

    Interesting finish on the fingerboard, applied with a broom?
    Nice tight neck screws, look at the deformed neck plate sunk into the wood.
    "Neck pocket lowered 1/16 for lower string action"?
    Where is this guy getting these lines?
    Monty Python?

    Wow right, no sand and prep if they left router burn visible.
    That would sand out easily on poplar.
