    Hi everyone,
    I have never played much electric guitar, except being conscripted to play bass when I was a kid, and have really only owned/played acoustic off and on over the years. But it has always been on my to do list to build my own electric guitar someday. Well I finally built a couple of Strat bodies (with a ton of help from this forum) and bought some Warmoth necks. Even with all the setbacks/ mistakes/ re-do's they turned out, and I had a blast! I have definitely caught the bug, and have plans in mind for more... next up... Tele's!

    Welcome to the forum!

    A tele should if anything be easier, and it will be a great addition to your arsenal!

    So, shortly you'll be posting "Two new Telecasters" instead of "New to Telecasters". :lol:

    Welcome! I’m new too to the site but not telecasters. No doubt telecasters are an addicting pastime.
