I'm primarily a bass player, but have always had this admiration for Leo's early Telecasters. Sometimes I wonder what those early guitars would have sounded like brand new out of the factory. So I thought about trying to recreate a Blackguard telecaster using new parts from various suppliers. For example, Musikraft offers Blackguard bodies and necks, Don Mare and other could wind vintage correct pickups, and there are many others with vintage exact or near exact hardware. My early research has revealed that I'll have to compromise on some of the electronics, but hopefully not by much. My goal is not to assemble a relic that simulates fifty years of aging, but to recreate a pristine Blackguard using currently available parts that accurately resemble the look, feel, and sound of those guitars when new. I'm not even considering rolling the neck edges for enhance playability. Just trying to simulate brand spanking new out of the case. Am I looking at an insurmountable task or is this a feasable project? And if feasable, does any one have thoughts regarding part suppliers, body finishers, etc. for the project. Thanks.
