    Hello!

    Telecaster is my guitar to go.
    When I was younger the guitar couldn't have enough pointy edges... I played metal and punk... so it was a world of Jackson, BC Rich, Dean, etc
    When i stopped playing live i sold most of my stuff...

    At my 30th Birthday i got my first tele: A Fender Nashville Tele. I love it.
    It was my only guitar until earlier this year. When i was like...
    "I want to try to build my own...." So i thought about building one of these Kits, that were available online... As I wanted a Dual Humbucker Tele... I decided to scrap the KIT idea and simply started collecting and gathering parts... used Parts, chinese ones, vintage ones, etc.
    Did a coil split and added a kill switch...

    But I'm not 100% happy with the guitar... I think the neck frets are not perfect...
    Until I'm motivated to take it apart and work on the frets again... It's hanging on the wall of my office...

    Three weeks ago i got an Aria 1582T 24" Made in Japan Tele from 1972 for dirty cheap.

    And since this one needs some work and love... i got active... to bombard you with questions...

    :eek::eek:FIRST QUESTION IS ALREADY IN THE TELE HOME DEPOT SUBFORMS :eek::eek:


    Other Gear...
    I'm playing through a PCL vintage Amp combo 75W. (Rath-Amps)
    ProCo Rat
    Marshall Jackhammer
    Boss HM2
    I'm also playing directly in the computer with virtual amps and plugins a lot lately...

    Those older Aria guitars are really cool and have a cult following.

    Thanks :) yeah totally. It looks really cool. You should definitely put one of these on a Tele :cool:
    Sadly I'm having a bit of tuning issues on mine, which I hope to get rid of with the help of the boardies on here :(:(
