    A good friend of mine picked up some quality parts for his first tele and custom build. He didn't feel comfortable putting it together himself so I helped him out. I've only really frankensteined a strat and tele before this so I'm pretty stoked how it came out!!! The roasted flame maple neck is one of the best looking necks I've ever seen!! Only thing that he screwed up was getting 6mm shaft knobs instead of 1/4 inch.

    Parts list.

    Warmoth T style body in shell pink roasted ash w/ contoured heel
    Roasted Flame Maple Neck 5A
    Schaller locking tuners
    Warmoth Vintage style bridge w/ compensated saddles
    Emerson Custom 3 way Tele electronics
    Fender Custom Shop 51 Nocaster Pickups
    3 ply pick guard

    Looks good as is. What vintage bridge does Warmoth sell, the Gotoh? I like Marc Rutters and Glendale for small parts, strap buttons, knobs, switch tips, etc.

    It's their in-house vintage style bridge and he ordered some compensated brass saddles off amazon. Not sure of the manufacturer. All I know is that it sounds good!!!

    I'd leave the white guard, personally. Mint and maple together looks weird to me.

    It looks great!
