    Hi All,

    Wanted to share my first tele build which I completed today - it took me 5 hours start to finish. Specs are below.

    • Neck - Warmoth 22.5 inch conversion scale, Wolfgang profile, flame maple, rosewood board, 12 inch radius, medium jumbo frets, vintage tint gloss
    • Body - Warmoth vintage tele body in vintage white
    • Pickups - StewMac golden age
    • Electronics - 4 way harness from Callahan
    • Bridge - Wilkinson
    • Tuners - Gotoh
    Was fun to build - plays and sounds good. Just need to install strap locks. Neck is more substantial than I thought. Would probably go with a smaller radius next time.

    Let me know what you guys think - photos are below.

    Nice job. Wait until you catch the fever to start with blocks of wood.

    Beautiful guitar and gorgeous neck. Really like the rosewood/vintage white/black pickguard look - a bit different than most vintage white teles.

    Congrats - well done!

    Thanks all!

    The neck looks even better in person, and is really high quality. Very impressed with Warmoth. You're right that it is a unique look - I think the rosewood board isn't as typical on the vintage white teles. I dig it.
