    Where are all of these nice bodies from?! Florida Sam, proknblue, and Bud Veazey, all have lovely guitars and you make me want another tele. Can you guys tell me where the bodies are from? Or don't... Cause if you do I might have to make a new guitar.

    The Warmoth-Caster is a Warmoth body. It came with no finish. I routed .12 binding channels and installed black/tortoise laminated binding. Finished the top and back in Mary Kay White.

    Da Valnut came from an eBay vendor called RH Factor Guitars. Book-matched walnut top that I finished in natural. The creme binding was already installed on this one.

    Thanks for the comment.

Thinline body, 71 Musicmaster 24" scale neck, Gretsch Filtertron and GFS Retrotron Liverpool pickups, Villex pickup booster, Steinberger 40:1 gearless tuners, Torres Bluestone harness, variable coil tap, Taipan Tonebar, built-in rechargeable Samson wireless transmitter.

    Thanks, I picked up a blank from a fancy wood supplier and sent it to USACG for cutting and fretting. The body is one-piece ash from USACG also.
