So I will explain, early this morning after coffee and bacon sandwich, I was lying there half awake sort of thing listening to the news, well obviously the mind drifted to guitars as it usually does with empty head space. I say empty , I can be mid conversation with someone and drift off but any way s. Probably due in part to the recent threads about signature models and perfect guitars etc which I've greatly enjoyed, I started planning a build based around a tele body with contours sort of strat/ Jeff Beck esquire/kotzen style. Finished in a light apple green nitro , Gold hard wear like the kotzen teles. Not sure on pups but again like the set up on the kotzen but I had thought about a fralin in the neck and j b Seymour Duncan in the bridge ,but open to suggestions . Now the neck I want to put a scalloped rose wood tele neck on it …. Why because I think it would look and feel amazing plus I've never seen one on a tele before? I know some will be thinking why but does anyone know of where one can be sourced ? ; or will it be a do it my self job? ;done it before on a strat an whilst a lot of labour to do right , would keep me busy over the winter. So I guess my question is have any of you done a scalloped tele neck or seen any ? Plus would be interested to know what parts you would all use for this build and where to source things , So tele body contoured like a strat style, I will paint but what best sealer and paint used rancher in past. Gold hard ware preferably locking vintage style, Pickups, want tele and strat ish tones said what I like above but ideas?. Scalloped rosewood neck , pre cbs decal Slanted neck heel on body as well btw. What harness set up should I use or be looking out for . Also what best aged white guards are available these days ?. Dreams you see after coffee and bacon , joking aside its a build ive been thinking about for a while and it keeps coming to me in my quiet time lol. All help and ideas appreciated and noted.
