    Hey all! Long time lurker and at one point had an account but forgot my login credentials. Appreciate all the knowledge this forum has! Have too many guitars, but I’ll highlight tele style here.

    Long time tele fan, currently own:
    - Fender classic player 60s tele
    - Fender Chris Shiflett tele deluxe
    - my own t style build (Guatemalan rosewood top, one piece ash body, fralin pickups, warmoth roasted maple neck with rosewood fretboard, SS frets)

    Welcome also! Custom one is your Favorite, I'm guessing? 10 years ago I had a Fender I hated, so Custom's since then. Never looked back except to complain about owning a Fender!

    Custom one is definitely my favorite T style guitar I own! I built it with a friend at his shop and was able to pick out the wood pieces and of course the hardware, etc. It will always have sentimental value, and the Fralin pickups sound really good.

    I will say it was harder than I thought it would be getting everything finished and fit together. There are definitely some advantages to just buying off the shelf Fender guitars. I got the used Shiflett because it had high output pickups, rosewood fretboard, love the 70s styling but flatter radius, and they come with a case.

    Buying everything separately adds up, but it is nice to own a unique guitar that I helped build.
