I had a thread a month ago about finishing a Rutters Pine Telemaster body I bought off of a fellow forumite. Well, I finally started on her. The neck is a Warmoth Vintage Modern, maple with maple 'board and 22 6105 frets and the Clapton v profile. All I did on that so far was apply a waterslide decal, masked off the frets, and shot some Stew-Mac standing sealer on her. As for the body, I coated it multiple times with Zinsser Bullseye Amber Shellac, and after each coat I sanded her back down with 220-grit sand paper. This darkened the grain lines and made them "pop" nicely. I left the last two coats of Shellac there for a uniform yellowish color, then sprayed 3 good coats of sanding sealer on it. Now I'm just waiting for a nice sunny day to start clear coating them with lacquer. I think the color turned out nicely... Not exactly a traditional Blonde per se, but I really dig the kinda "rustic" look it now has! Parts wise, here's what's going on this guitar: Gotoh tuners, a set of Fender CS Nocaster pickups I got awhile back, a Fender Highway 1 bridge plate with brass saddles I got from Darren Riley, 250k Fender CTS pots, Fender 5-way switch with Barrel knob, Glendale grip-o-matic knobs, a Rutters electrocup, and a Bakelite pickguard. I'm also gonna do the Nocaster wiring on this as well, as all of my other Teles have a more modern switching setup. This isn't actually the neck I'm gonna keep on this thing... I'm eventually gonna get a more 50's correct neck with old style Kluson tuners. I got this neck to try out the Clapton back carve, but it has a 1 11/16's nut width and 22 frets, so it will eventually go on my next planned build, a Cabronita type thingy.
