Hi there, my names Pete, and I have had an infatuation with Telecasters about 20 odd years ago as a teenager, and decided, if i can't buy one, I'll build my own. Last year started a few roughs at work in spare time, and now I've finally had time to actually put one together. I live in the South West of Western Australia. anywho, here's my start to a few rough outs. The top is an radiata pine, middle is a LP Junior i started in Acacia, and the bottom is Jarrah which is grown here in the bottom corner of Western Australia. I have just about completed the pine partscaster, I had it all together like this, everything soldered and playing. Nut to bridge length is 25.5", I don't have the dark circuit engaged, so the neck pickup with really warm, and the bridge has the nice Tele twang. Currently has 10-46s but I will be swapping back to 9-42 super slinkys, I find these a lot easier to play. It is now completely stripped down, and I have laid the basecoats of the blonde finish ready to be clear coated in the next day or so. I also have a '05 Squire Strat which I have retaught myself to play, and also drums which is my number 1. My next project once I have completed this one is build a semi hollow Tele with with either a single or twin humbuckers. I have never actually held a Tele in my life or seen one up close, only on stage or in video clips, so I am hoping I am close to representing one. Pete.
