100GBP - Div's Telecaster

FINISHED PICS PAGE 9

Simple build, yet my first one.

Specs:
Mahogany Body
Bolt on Guatambu Neck with Ebony Fretboard.
Dual Humbucker
Akkord hardware
Lace Pickups

Kisekae Mock Up:



Getting the body wood tomorrow.

My advantages: Wood is cheaper here than in the states. 100GBP is quite a lot of money at least here.

Cheers.

Good! Practice makes perfect!

as well: Templates make EVERYTHING easier. If you can, make a plywood / MDF template before you start, it'll make the routing process much easier.

Nice! Now that you mention it, the Tele HB bridge does look like a new iPod nano.

When making templates for any straight parts it is best to use doublestick tape to stick a piece of wood where the line is and use a top mounted bearing bit (the same you would use for routing the cavities in the guitar) that way it's perfect. The neck pockets where you want it the best. If it's covered up by a pickguard , cover or anything it really doesn't have to be perfect at all but if your like me it will bother you.
