    Figured I'd showcase my Tele partscaster in this thread.
    The body and neck are both from MJT (built by USA Custom Guitars and finshed by MJT. Mark and Matt to excellent work there and are super friendly.
    Neck is 22 fret, 12" radius, 1 11/16" nut width, regular C shape, 6150 frets. Body is Alder with bound flame maple top.
    For electronics, I'm running Lindy Fralin Blues Special pickups and an ObsidianWire pre-wired control plate.

    Thank you! Will have to bring down the nut height a bit, action at the nut is quite high. Otherwise it plays great, and these Fralins are great pickups.

    Thanks! Yeah, the pickups are spectacular. Neck pickup sounds almost like a Strat neck pickup while retaining Tele qualities, bridge pickup can sound like a vintage PAF in an LP depending on my attack.

    Looks fantastic!

    Especially while you have assembled it from different sources, the whole thing looks uniform and like it's been together forever. Very nice looking instrument.
