    Hey Gang,

    I'm building a tele kit and I figured that I'm already starting to have some questions so I figgered that this would be the best community to reach out to.....

    I'm kinda new to teles, but I've always wanted one.

    My current guitars are a rickenbacker 360 and a Precision guitar kit les paul junior kit

    Welcome! You'll be glad you have the tele. Such a simple basic yet versatile instrument.

    Welcome to the forum!

    You'll find a wealth of knowledge, variety of opinions and discussions on everything under the sun including but definitely not limited to Tele's here.

    Kit builds, scratch builds and everything in-between.

    Oh and the members LOVE Pics. So don't be shy when posting, just make sure you include pics.....If you don't, don't say you didn't know...lol

    Topic searches will answer a lot of questions but not all. I've found that most questions have been discussed and addressed before, however, clarification and new discussions are welcomed by all with exception of the odd grumpy member. Ignore the grumpy ones and have fun.

    They are pretty well sanded when they come. I used a grain filler and sanding sealer. Then nitro blue and mohawk topcoat.

    Great kits!
