Not so much a build as me finding the parts and giving to to a luthier to put together.

Have this body from MJT coming it is candy purple, but is mostly looking red haha.


Have some aged nickel hardware coming.

Have a maple board Birdseye neck lined up cheap, likely won't be aged but I have to put some of the aging in myself.


Haven't decided on pickguard or pups.

You should put it together yourself. You will love it more when it's done!
I totally agree. It isn't as difficult as you might think.

Take your time and enjoy the process and then the pride associated with having done it yourself.

Look to Budz for pickups. They're what came stock in both my Danos (Tele and Esquire) and those are absolutely fantastic pickups. The Eldred wiring scheme is a cool thing to do as well, whereby you replace the front position of the 3 way switch (which previously would have had a preset "bass" sound, as per vintage spec) to one that allows for more of a cocked wah style midrange frequency to come through. Very usable and works well in tandem with the brighter settings on the guitar.

Things might actually get out of hand here. I might do two tele builds haha.

The tele gas is strong.
