....that stands for 'New Neck Day' in this case.


Been slowly modding my '62 Telecaster over the past 18 months or so to the point where it's barely recognisable, and have been really happy with the results - but gigging 30-4 times a week has taken its toll on the frets, to the point they were beyond crowning.


So after a few attempts on eBay to find a nice new neck, I turned to one of my old guitars for the solution...



I've turned it into a firebreathing rock Tele and it feels and sounds great!
Sounds like a Les Paul but with a bit of trademark Tele spank, and the Ibanez neck isn't actually all that different in feel to the one that was on there originally, just bigger frets and a noticeably flattter radius.


What do you think? Hot or not?

Hot?

More like orgasmic.

I have been sigged by UG's Greek, what have YOU done today?

But for metal that is definetly a sick guitar.
I mean where have you EVER seen a Tele that has risen from the dead?
(In a good sort of way)
My gear so far:

-Cort KX5 (pearl white)
-Crybaby Wah
-Danelectro Cool Cat
-Fender Twin Reverb 65' Reissue
-Hardwire TL2

First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me

The headstock killed my raging boner...

Really cool look though. It's definitely original.

Haha cheers guys. The Ibanez neck was very much supposed to be a temporary and slightly silly solution, until I can afford a really nice custom Strat neck...but it plays really well!

Might print out a picture of a fender headstock on cardboard and tape it over the Ibanez one

Is that a SD hot rails in the bridge?

HNND, it's wrong for a tele to have a thin neck though. They should be nice and thick

I know he posted it as a N_D thing, but it's more of just a Mod.

Haha, I've got about 3500 fonts on my design PC and didn't bother saving that pic as a psd. Believe me, I'm racking my brain trying to remember!

You can get a really nice neck from Warmoth.com for 157$ But that's definitely a nice tele.
