    Just starting a kit telecaster build in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I'm trying to document this and will probably create another thread to track that build. I have a Strat and a PRS and I thought I gotta have a Tele ... Cheapish kit popped on Amazon with what looked like an ash body, Add To Cart, Order and I'm in ;)

    Have been watching guitar building videos on YouTube for a while, hopefully enough of that rubbed onto me so that I can actually complete a kit... I'll throw in a photo of the stained body with the hardware loosely sitting on top of it.

    Welcome!

    I’m not a builder but more of an “assembler”.

    I hope you can get your answers from the educated folks on this forum.. :p

    Welcome! This is a great place to hang out. Good luck with the build. I am currently building or should I say assembling a p bass and totally modding a mum 72 thinline.

    That looks like a great start!

    Take your time with the finish on the wood. It's normal to be impatient and wanting to complete the project and play it, but if you rush the finishing it will look rushed.
