    Hi all. As a Strat faithful for over ten years I've just made my own Tele with a body and neck bought separately off Wish lol (yes I know)

    '51 No Caster pickups in it.

    Blow me down if it's not one of the best guitars I've ever played. And the SOUND omg.

    The neck with a bit of DIY tinted nitro spray on it is buttery smooth also.

    Great looking build, especially for your first Tele. Love it all, color is great, neck tint looks right on and the pickups are a big thumbs up.
