Hi folks, I'm looking into creating a Paisley Esquire, and I was hoping to share my progress and ideas and see if I'm doing anything deeply unfortunate. My plan is to order a Warmoth neck and body, unfinished. Stainless steel vintage frets and fatback carve, with standard Tele body. I am building an amp for my 10th anniversary and have a good deal of extra fabric (upholstery fabric) in a paisley. I was thinking I could titebond II down the fabric, and then seal before adding a deep navy blue burst from the edges with paper lightly taped in center of body using spray can. My big issue is I wanted to make sure upholstery fabric would work, and I was curious if I could brush on clear shellac as the sealer and then paint over and then shellac some more on the final coat. I've used wipe-on poly but I was thinking about the shellac as it is less toxic overall and I like having something with less fumes in the build. Toss-up between doing a p90 bridge pickup, a humbucker, or winding my own single-coil pickup. Leaning into the winding option. I currently have one other tele that is rocking the Duncan broadcaster set.
