I finished my first partscaster and am pretty thrilled about it! A couple highlights below: - Didn't realize that the warmoth roasted maple necks were such a hard/brittle wood. Apparently they come with a piece of paper that suggests widening the pilot holes that screw in the tuners but that was missing from my shipment! When i screwed in the LAST dang tuner a little fissure developed in the headstock. It wasnt too bad, just sad as hell. For precaution i unscrewed the tuners, widened th holes, superglued the fissure and put a clamp on it for a couple days to support it. - 4 way switch with the bridge passing through the neck as the last option (if understand that correctly but that's certainly how i wired it. - Something is a little off with the wiring. She sounds great though so i dont want to take it apart! lol. I think something is ungrounded as there is a heavy buzz/hum with the tone knob turned up. When i touch the knobs, the sound goes away. Hell, even if i touch the tuning pegs the sound goes away. Not quite sure what it is but let me know if you have any thoughts. I don't think that is traditional 60 cycle hum. If you have any thoughts about what it might be im taking suggestions below. - Just want to point out one of my favorite parts of the guitar is the ebony fretboard around the 20+ fret. I think warmoth called it a flame or something like that, but the wood changes colors and is this delicious creamy thing matching the body and fret inlays. Love it! - The electrosocket jack is life changing. Do this. Telecaster by jayflowers posted Dec 15, 2019 at 7:52 AM Sloppy Specs: - Warmoth Roasted Maple Neck and Ebony Fretboard, compound radius modern/vintage construction. Stainless steel frets, dont remember the size, its the one everyone gets that are not jumbo these days. - Warmoth Body, some kind of white maybe vintage white, Thinline with no F hole so its basically chambered as I understand it. Guitar is very lightweight! - Dimarzio Twang King Bridge and Neck - Fender American Hot Rod Telecaster Bridge, its the expensive compensated one i have no business getting. - Gotoh Vintage locking tuners - Electronics in there are from stewmac, i think they are advertised as vintage or the better ones or something. I actually dont know how to play guitar. I really wanted a strat, but i borrowed my uncle in laws telecaster while i was saving for a new guitar. I shopped around for more than a year, but couldnt find exactly what i wanted. Plus i was too embarrassed to go into stores, plug in and get harassed by a GC employee. I decided i would build what i thought was special, and it is! Bad news is i got bit by the bug... already planning for my next project!
