I love this thread.
My favorite single thread on the whole TDPRI!
I need to take some decent pics of my current two "partsters" and post 'em.
I love seeing what everyone else is putting together.
Teles are much more fun to assembly than to buy whole.
My parts tele. Warmoth 10-16 compound radius neck, stainless steel medium jumbos, 1-11/16 nut width. One coat of Tru Oil. Allparts swamp ash body, Tru Oil, stopped counting coats after 12 or so. D Allen Hot Vintage bridge and Alley Cat neck.
Stunning! - Really glorious!
Do I really see staggered rails on the bridge pickup to match the slant?
Ok so it's been a (short) few years, and I've recently acquired a MM blueburst tele body and can't wait to start shopping for the remaining parts. In the meantime I'll show the last one I put together - the Black n Blue Nashville style:
Blackout Tele body, MIM neck. CS 52' reissue Tele pups, CS Texas Special middle. Had to have the nut replaced (original was cut poorly) so I went with a graphite and while it was at the local tech shop he did a PLEK job on it that fixed all the playability issues. Since then I've learned to level my own frets, but this guitar plays absolutely perfect and is (most of the time) my #1.
Cool! What's going on with your tone pot?
Since the pickup selector switch is a std 5-way (strat/nashville) style, the tone pot has a push-pull switch that brings in the bridge pickup to allow bridge+neck pickup combination - I did not want to miss out on the tone a regular tele in the middle selector position offers.
Clever! Great idea.
What a beautiful guitar!
What is and what will be...
the sunburst on the right was my 1st build: 08' Highway 1 body & neck, Am Std pickups (thinking about a change).
Love to see everyone's projects. Very inspiring! Here's my first two partscasters:
- MJT body and neck. Olympic White. SD Antiquities. Love this guitar. The most "tele" sounding guitar I've ever played.
- Danny Hines pine body 'Esquire'. Waiting on my Don Mare Twangzilla. Can't wait!
Hello, telecaster anonymous? Yes, I have a problem...
Just finished this project. Allparts TMO-FAT neck, TransTinted and finished in Tru-Oil, on a Squier CV body. Pickups are Texas Specials. It's a little on the heavy side (around 8 lbs), but sure plays great, especially given the low cost of assembly.
My Paisley build, did all the finishing myself.
Nice. Care to share the how to.... ?
That is cool. Out of this world, even...[groan] Seriously though: niiiice.
I think doing a Paisley build would be my one way of getting my wife to release funds to me. She'd be able to help and she likes the pattern... Hmmmm...
