Not sure how many pieces I think 12 for the body reclaimed from house in Nebraska, (Nomoonlasrer on Ebay) the neck is a one piece Warmoth CBS headstock, roasted maple with 59 round back profile, 10-16 compound radius, corian nut and Hipshot grip lock open gear locking tuners. Wilkinson Bridge with compensated brass saddles that I think is as good or better than Fender for half the money. Solder less 3 way harness Tele Vintage style clone pups, anodized and powder coated black and brass hardware. Plays great still needs a full set up, string trees and strap buttons. Really pleased with this one so far just needs a little tlc.
