And what would those lovely pickups be?
Rockinger Telly Twister and vintage P90
Arty'sCustomsGuitars Treble bleed included
90s Fender American body
Fender elite neck
Duncan Donahue in the bridge
Twang King in the neck
The color is sunbleached with poly finish. I haven't polished it yet and I'm not sure I'm going to
Nevermind the janky pickguard. Chinese peice oh ****. I'll never do that again
There’s a build thread on TDPRI for this one. Just finished her up. Fretwire left handed 72ish Thinline build. Body is top bound with mahogany back and maple top. Everything is stock except the pots and the nut. Neck is finished in tru oil. Body is a light blue metallic (acrylic lacquer from Duplicolor) top and a natural back and then cleared in nitro. Pickups aren’t bad at all.

My first post on TDPRI
I've just finished my first Partscaster build so wanted to share some info and photos.
Black Ash body with white top binding
Roasted maple neck with some gloss
Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound bridge pickup
Seymour Duncan Phat Cat neck pickup
Pots are Emerson Custom Pro (500K volume and tone)
Fender American Standard Tuners
Graph Tech Tusq XL nut
Standard 3-way switch
I’m not usually a fan of gold hardware but I’m loving it here! Really beautiful!
Thank you, appreciate the feedback!
Love it! That guitar has a real "Bandit Trans Am" vibe to it...
Here is my effort - MIK Squier body from 97 with a 2010 Classic 60s neck (courtesy of a trade with a fellow TDPRI member) and a set of 1989 Japanese Squier pickups. Longer term the neck and pickups will go into a Robben Ford style white guard build
Here is a few of the herd.
Yeah! Forgot about my Robben Ford version from unknown body and Allparts vintage specs aged neck. Added 4 position Fender switch, Texas Specials CS, bone nut, Planet Waves Elliptical locking strap pins, Fender ferrules and neckplate, Vanson compensated saddles.
Guess what? Very HAPPY with!
I always wanted a Tele in this color combo (burst w/ binding and a maple neck) and have always been a fan of and owned a few of the "older" 52AVRI's (also called Pumpkincasters) before they changed the name to "Pure Vintage" and changed the color, pickups, neck profile, etc. I never like the finish or color on either model, and the PV52 neck was just uncomfortable.
My Partscaster is basically all Fender parts except for the StewMac Golden era 4-way wiring harness. Has a Classic 50's neck that has quite a bit of flame, bone nut and has been PLEK'd. Fender OV pickups (same pickups used in the older 52AVRI's). Body is from a Squier CVC. The Classic 50's neck is basically a spitting image of a 2008 52AVRI I used to own as far as shape and profile, vintage style frets, etc. I really think the Classic 50's necks were one of the best bargains from Fender when they were $199 for poly and $249 in nitro. Looks like they've increased the price of each of those by $100! I bought one of each at the time and went with the poly because it looked better, has some flame to it, and the nitro version was way to orange.
From all the pictures sent in, folks are building some nice axes on their own. To me it's like putting together your own "Hotrod" car. There parts may come from here an there, but in the end it is something of beauty and you can call it your own creation.
I bought this one as a partscaster, and have made no modifications to in four years of ownership. The guitar on the left started life as a black MIM Classic 60's Telecaster. The owner re-finished it and painted a grubby grime/relic effect on the body. Neck was changed for a MIM standard neck and modern Fender tuners. Bareknuckle Brown Sugar pickups. The bridge, control plate and knobs have been reliced and an engraved neckplate fitted. It came with the original neck (truss rod works, and not a lot of fret wear) and pickups, Levy's strap, a Fender professional case for under £300 shipped. I'm unsure about the painted finish, but it plays and sounds as good as any guitar I have so nothing is going to change.
These are all partscasters and only two of these have any wood at all and minimal plastic only a few pick up covers and switch tips.
Just finished this one yesterday.
That is wicked awesome! Well done!
