I talked about my plans here in the original thread:

    https://www.tdpri.com/threads/show-us-your-robben-ford-inspired-tribute-telecasters.1034435/

    but it took far longer to get everything together than I’d expected!

    It has a Nitro finished two piece alder body from SC Relics, a Classic 60s neck with a RW board, aged control plate and knobs along with a dual top loader/through body bridge, 60s style threaded saddles and a top hat switch tip. The pickups are a Fender 64 Telecaster set and the pots and switch wiring harness is from Six String Supplies.

    I still have to age the saddles and bridge - got a bit impatient and just wanted to play it! I am really happy with the way it has turned out. The body is extremely resonant when played unplugged and the Fender 64s really sound great.

    I will take a few more shots of the back etc later if anyone is interested

    Cheers
