I started this build about a week and a half ago, figured it was time to get some input. To make a long story short, I have a 20th anniversary affinity squier strat (with the big fat 70's headstock) that the cavities were routed to deep and busted @ the tremolo. I was going to try to pick up a strat body somewhere, but I have a really nice set of seymour duncan antiquity series pickups that I've been looking for a vehicle for. Each pickup is hand signed by seymour himself twice on the back, and once on the bag they come in. So I thought why not build a tele deluxe body. Kill 2 birds with one stone, and fulfill my deep lust for a tele. Since I do not own a tele, in my search for templates I found the tdpri forums. I downloaded the Terry Downs cad file (thank you Terry), and took it to a local machine shop with a waterjet machine. They blew them out of 1/8" aluminum in about 15 minutes.
