    Perusing the Facebook marketplace and this caught my eye. A young lady had listed it, which is often a sign that it’s a pawn shop I’ve learned. I told myself a couple years back no more cheap guitars, but I’ve really wanted to do a bound Tele partscaster build for years now. Figured out which one and scooted over quickly before they or somebody else realized what it was.

    $169 out the door - boom!

    Condition I’d rate as excellent - some slight finish marks from normal use. Doesn’t appear to have any fret wear even though it’s a 2010 model.

    Anyway, I’ll probably play it as is for now and wait for a deal on a neck to appear. Needs some new strings, but is already set up pretty well.

    It may be against the ethos, but I love double bound teles. Congrats!

    Nothing at all, other than not being the neck I’d pick for a partscaster project. I know people like them, and I think they are fine.

    Plus, the nut is rubbish and is extremely hard to R + R.

    Funny - I’ve made the mistake of messing with those nuts before.

    I figure I sell it and get a very nice body for around $100. That’s just dumb luck.

    Nice. I got mine for $200 and felt like it was a sweetheart deal.

    Congrats!

    Great score! I love mine but had to replace the neck because of a faulty
    truss rod. I swapped it out for a chunky maple one.
