    Since I miss my '96 Fender RI paisley Telecaster so bad, I've decided to save my money and have the guy that did TDPRI member, FredDairy's, paisley Telecaster to build mine and install a set of older/early Barden pickups and Keith pegs then (hopefully) have my bender guitar friend, Bill Bores, install another set of B/G benders in the guitar for me.....

    All of this is gonna take about a year and a half because I've gotta save the $$$ first. :(

    Wish me lucketh! The photos below are just examples of what I want the guitar to look like before I have the other stuff added to it:

    I love my paisley’s are you using an allparts body? I think those bodies look pretty good.
    Are you having a neck built or using an allparts neck? Id suggest a different neck if you plan on using an allparts, unless you’ve used allparts before and like them. If you’ve never used one I’d suggest going for something a little higher in quality,
    From experience if you buy an allparts neck the frets WILL need work just a heads up.
    I’ve never bought anything from allparts that didn’t require “surgery” to make the parts fit right

    Anyway have a great time in the wonderful world of paisley

    I bought a newer AllParts Strat neck a couple of months ago (Japan made) and to my surprise the fretwork was just perfect. A Tele chunky I bought a couple years ago had needed a light level so YMMV.

    I’ve also only used one neck and am unsure of its origin, so I guess I’d give one a try if I could be sure it’s mij.

    I’ve just had bad experience with allparts their products are close but just not close enough to fit with out some work.

    I would have loved to have had a JVG paisley body but.....he's just too pricey for me. Anyway, I'll be getting an AllParts paisley body from a fellow TDPRI'er and getting the local guitar shop here to do the build and then hopefully send it to Bill Bores for the B/G bender install. And I'm not gonna sell this one! I ain't making the same mistake twice!!!! I was under the influence of painkillers the first time because I had just had major surgery on my foot and those Percocet did the "talkin'" for me. This time that won't be happening. I'm gonna keep it until they lower me in the ground.

    I got the JVC body with the pickguard on Reverb for $200. The guy selling it had bought it for a project and never got around to it. In the meantime, he must have forgotten what he paid for it, but I was super happy to stumble into it.

    Unless you already have the parts laying around, why not just try to find a used made in japan or CIJ guitar already made. It costs me at least $700.00(using quality parts, pickups, electronics to build a decent tele from scratch. That's with me doing all the painting and set up work. There is not that much difference in price to buy one new. The last I looked they were going for around a grand. Used probably much less.

    Ironically, I do actually have a MIJ 2002 paisley Tele that I bought about a year or so ago and have thought about using the neck and the bridge and control plate from that guitar (I have a set of older-period Bardens that I want to install in the new build as well). So, I may just do that. The MIJ necks usually fit perfectly with the AllParts bodies.....right??

    Not sure about that. As you probably well know, the original paisleys had a maple neck with maple cap fretboard. The Japanese reissues have a standard tele neck with the skunk stripe up the middle of the back. I had a maple capped neck from another build (Fender specs) and it didn't fit. I also have a 2002 MIJ and the neck heel was too wide(or maybe is was too narrow, I can't exactly remember which) for my other Fender spec. neck pocket. You may want to do your homework before trying that. The Allparts bodies should all be Fender specs so I think you are safe there. The hardware parts should fit ok though. I hope that helps!

    I think the MIJ bodies are Allparts bodies, aren't they?

    Does anybody know what happened to Bill Bores? I hear he's been incommunicado for some time now.

    He's still around on FB....although, I haven't contacted him in a while. I just checked there again.....that's weird....he's not responding to messages in the usually quick manner or not answering at all. I sure hope he's ok.......:(:confused:
