Had a piece of Alder laying around just waiting to be turned into a guitar. Here's my first Telecaster build. Warmoth neck, Texas Special pickups, 4 way switching. Parts I made or had made: All router patterns, body, aluminum pickguard, stainless steel control plate with angled switch with more spacing between the switch and the volume knob, stainless body inlay (Thank you Ron Thorn for your advice), black lacquer paint. 7 lbs. 4.4oz.
