So basically I am planning on doing something like this


The neck will be telecaster shape instead of strat shape. With more squared at the end of the neck pocket.
Instead of the tele bridge there will be a Wilkinson tremolo.

Everything can be arranged at Warmoth but the pickguard.

So, does anybody knows where I can find custom tele pickguard that covers the lower horn of a strat body? Just like the picture above.

Actually, if you can do a full-sized sketch of the pickguard, Warmoth WILL do it for you.

Oh shit... Now I HAVE to do this one just to see him swear some more


Anyway... I just sent off an email to warmoth about the pickguard. This is basically a standard tele with lower horn of a strat. Another alternative is to have the entire lower half strat shaped and top half tele with that lovely curve. Would be very interesting...


--EDIT
Warmoth support just answered and they can't do it. Reffered to this guy instead http://www.terrapinguitars.com
I guess I will take a look. Seems quite expensive for a custom, though.

It's not as easy as you think doing it by hand. I would prefer to have a flawless cut by a machine.

I have no idea if it would work, but perhaps ask a some of the custom pickguard suppliers whether they could modify a normal Telecaster plate to that shape.
I deeply regret the 6661 in my username. Siiiigh. Damn you, 14 year old me, you edgy little bastard.

Actually id buy the one in the picture as is, that thing looks sweet.


That guitar is a $5000 customshop Masterbuilt model. Fender Masterbuilt Tennessee is the name. I don't think I have the budget for it. Can barely going for warmoth build :p

You do realize that it requires a custom routed Strat body, right? The pickguard is the least of your concerns if you want to copy that design.
