I never do any building for myself. Sure there's the red Esquier (wich is long gone) and the SX to blackguard conversion but, lately all i did was building telecaster for other people... There's this telecaster that's been lurkin'in the back of my mind for some time now, a guitar with all the right parts a collaboration if you will from top quality materials. It is a black on black telecaster and it's supposed to be a tribute to Leo Fender who as we all know had "costcutting" on the top of his list. So, i've been gathering parts in boxes for some time now, we have the callaham 5 hole bakelite pickguard, fender aftermarket dome knobs, an allparts controlplate, oak switch,cts 250K pots, a vintage PIO cap, cloth pushback wire, a Fender aftermarket vintage bridge, callaham stainless slotted screws replacement kit, callaham stainless retainer button, a quartersawn maple V neck 50 spec,Fender aftermarket tuners, theres even silver Fender spaghetti decals and a Leo Fender portrait decal. Pro quality grainfiller,sealer, black paint and highgloss clear. Wetsand and buffing stuff i have plenty of Callaham stainless saddles and a set of vintage toneriders on the way, should be here this week... I've been scowering the net for bargains on these parts forever and have sat up for many a night to get it all together ordering from all over the world. Got a very good deal on the body, a 4 pounds even, two piece swamp-ash thing. The neck is a perfect fit... Work starts this afternoon.
