This is the target of my first endeavour in the world of guitar building 🙂
Why a Tele?
1) it’s easy : no moving parts 🙂
2) it’s got only 2 pickups => less connections 🙂
3) Purpose of this project is to get acquainted with some handcraft. Screws, screws, just screws 🙂 at least in the beginning – and then octave tuning, action setting, setup activities in general – AND some soldering (scary!)
Why getting inspired by this model?
It’s a hot-rodded Tele which is good for both twangy country-like sounds and straight-ahead metal 🙂 and all the in-between.
This is because of the pickup choices and the wiring circuitry – my field, anyways, huh? 🙂
A point is worth noting upfront – this baby sells for something around €1600. Take note of that.
Enough for an appetizer? 🙂
