Can't believe how quick this one is coming together man, and it looks sweet, I also like the Truss Rod covers you've fabricated, including the peacesign logo, I'm sure you could market those. The pickguard really cleaned up nicely.

Tell us how the pickups sound. I'm with Joe as far as that is probably the weakest link on this era of Japanese guits, the Electronics almost seemed to be an afterthought. My hats off to you, great job. I almost afraid to ask if you saw the other Tele that just surfaced on eBay though... Mike.


yes. I saw the other one on eBay. thought about getting it for the case... :) I think the neck on mine is better shape... fretboard wise...
I still haven't gotten my box of electronics :bawl:


that one went for $420 out the door. it had a case...

mine was $229 shipped, and I've got about $25 in parts I had to order, and $15 in parts I had laying around from previous projects...
So say, $270 total into mine... just needs a case...

Great job and probably lots of fun and satisfaction on this project. Gotta love the simplicity of the Telecaster...looks just like an old early 50's model that was played everywhere. Front humbucker and rear single pole seems like it would offer some unique sounds a normal Telecaster or even a Deluxe would not have.
