Hi All,

I'm Irish, in London. I play a wide range of guitars; teles, LPs, some hollow bodies and I have a soft spot for Reverend guitars. I play clean or lightly overdriven in mostly rock or country-rock style through Fender amps.

I am looking to build my first t-style partscaster. I'm hoping to build a double-bound (like the 62) in ice blue, with some vintage style PUs and possibly with a lightly aged look. All advice welcome.

Welcome ReasonableC!
I usually start with a good photo of the guitar I want to build. A photo that shows a preferred color and a preferred look of the dream guitar I'm wanting to build.

Welcome to the TDPRI!

Make yourself at home!

My brother sent some spit and some money to 23 and Me and found that he is 55% British-Irish, so I probably am also.

You and I might have a common ancestor if we go back 500-600 years.

Feels likely - although the British and Irish are very different tribes....

Welcome to the addiction. Enjoy your build. A Telecaster is a kinda plain looking guitar some people say, but it has endless possibilities and mods that can be done.
