Hey, I figured I would introduce myself here. This site has come up many times in my google quests but just recently decided to join. I have yet to own a telecaster but I am obsessed with them and cannot wait to own my first. I was considering a warmoth body and neck so I can make exactly what I want, plus I want to do the finish work myself. Im really leaning towards a surf green body with cream guard with a roasted maple neck, think it would be a charmer. I just launched my guitar finishing business earlier this year, Hunter Bennett Paintworks, just doing it pt for now, but very rewarding for me. I am 35 years old, started playing when I was 12 but the past 6 years have been pretty scarce on the playing as we were starting a family and renovating our home. My short term goal is to start fitting in some time to practice because it has been a love of mine for more than half of my lifetime and I just love playing.

Welcome to TDPRI. Along with being Telecaster experts I think we've got some of the best guitar and amp builders available for online advice. I write music, play guitar and synth keyboards, research and collect guitars, amps and effect pedals which makes me pretty useless to anyone except myself but ..... there is a treasure trove of information available here for those in the building, customizing, etc. fields.

Plenty of people here to guide you with a Tele build.

I dont own a Telecaster yet, I really hope to very soon, but this is an example of my finish work. I have some lovely telecasters on the bench, one in a surf green and another with a highly figured flame top and black limba body. Excited to post those soon!

Welcome
I’m 3 years into my first Telecaster and it’s 90% of what I play.
