    Hello everyone. Long time lurker, but as I get closer to going home, I've been gassing like crazy for a Tele, and figured that I'd probably find many kindred spirits, or at least cool people to chat with, here.

    My Deployment rig is: Epiphone LP-100, Pignose Original 7-100, Line 6 Pocket Pod and a Boss MicroBR 4-track recorder.

    I think when I get home in a few months I'm gonna attack a parts-caster build on an ash bodied, big headstock tele with a tele bridge, single in the middle and a PAF flavored HB in the neck. I'm looking at a routed Warmoth Body and Vintage Modern one-peice maple neck....Is a three pickup Tele too much for a first time build?

    I can solder and read a wiring diagram...?

    Thanks, supersoldier71, for what you're doing and as others have said, be safe.

    Beware of building a partscaster Tele, there's no such thing as one.

    Go for it...

    Sounds like an interesting build to me. There isn't any task that the American Soldier can't handle.

    What's Basra like these days? Last time I was there was 91.

    Be safe, Hoo-Ahh!
