    It's tough but I figure if I don't buy them who will? Not the best reasoning but it works for me.

    It has arrived! Need to order up the hardware and decide if I am going to route this for a humbucker in the neck.

    Postman arrived! Just need a few more things and some pick ups and it should be good to go.

    The single-ply 5 hole pickguard was a nice choice.

    Thanks. It is from WD aged by Tricked Out Guitar in CA. I was going to drill and countersink three more holes but is a more rigid pickguard then the Allparts ones.

    Nice, I bought both of the replacement tele necks from Real Life Relics / Tricked Out Guitars.

    They do great work. Never tried their aged necks. Are they satin or gloss lacquer?

    Not shiny, no thick clearcoat, it was really similar to the neck that was on my Nash Tele before.

    Going with a set of Fender PV64' tele pickups. TOG will age them and they should be here in a week or so. I went back and forth with those, Manlius and Rumpelstiltskins but couldn't beat the price.

    Love the PV64, I had them in my double-bound MJT for a long time.

    Haha, thanks. I was going to go with the 22SC but they were on back order forever. I got a bit impatient and ordered the VS20. I put a Teese RMC10 and a Keeley Germanium OD in front of it and it kills!

    Hi there folks. I also have an MJT as of 2019. Thinking of ordering another. Here is mine in Firemist Silver. It didn’t quite get as “greened” as I hoped, but I don’t think they have painted this color before...and they checked it a lot more than the “light checking” I requested, but over all it was a great experience and I’m likely ordering again.

    Allparts neck, AMP saddles and thicker bridge plate. Currently loaded with Florance TE-60s, subject to change :).




    here is a vid I recently did. Excuse the spacey fun tones.

    I've ordered a custom body from them 3 weeks ago. Even though they've made me pick the color, I didn't get a photo of the body. Do they send photos of it before the finishing process?

    edit: Just realised it's my first post here, hello everyone!

    You can request photos when it arrives. Just email and ask. The photos are kind of compressed, but you can see them good enough. Hello! I’m fairly new too. Welcome!

    They sent me a picture of the body, front and back, before finishing.
