Some Teles I put together over the last couple of years using all Fender replacement parts and some spares I had.
Red one is a Fender CAR replacement body and new Mexican neck with Fender player series hardware and pickups.

Seafoam green one is a Fender Vintera 60s mod body with a Fender replacement Vintera mod roasted maple neck Fender 62 Custom pickups and Fender parts for bridge tuners and all hardware for string ferrules to Pickguard screws. :)

The white one is a Fender Olympic White replacement body with a Fender replacement 7.5 radius lacquer vintage style neck. Pickups are Fender Original Vintage and again all parts are genuine Fender.

I call these Partscasters because they're made up from parts and I put them together because you can't always get what you want..

These two get the most use. The one on the right is a Fender Classic Series body with a Warmoth roasted flame maple neck. I wasn't sure about the cream dots at first, but they look great with the aged Olympic white. The one on the left is a Warmoth 'Vintage' body, Olympic White, and a Warmoth roasted maple neck. Both necks were finished with Tru Oil. Also, the necks are a straight 9.5" radius with Warmoth's 'Standard Thin' C profile, 6105 frets (the flame one has SS6105). I'm so accustomed to the feel, I just about can't play on anything else.

Mostly Fender parts but technically partscasters.

Mine are technically Partscasters too but there is nothing on them that isn't a real Fender product. I love the way you can swap parts around to get just what you want and end up with a very personal instrument without a real lot of skills.
Leo really was a genius.

Those all look like great guitars.

Fender OV's are probably my favorite Telecaster pickup, and I have a Fender Classic Series 50's neck w/ a 7.25" radius on my current Partscaster. Bought it when they were $199, now they're $299 ($50 more for lacquer I believe) and still think that's reasonable for a great neck.
