Dave if you want to see the finish I have it on the body of my Tele, in fact I have a bottle you could use if you like

Could I bottle your tele? :D

Anytime, it needs a bit of relicing anyway!

And sniff it, lovingly?

Sounds interesting. I've been wanting to do one for years but got bogged down with indecision from looking at the 100's of options on Warmouth's site  :? :lol:

Wanna some help Johnny, I'm a Warmoth's nerd... this new site I haven't searched a lot, but I know many many options from them, even some that are not shown on the site :lol:

Nice ones!! Solid Rosewood or chambered? This thing weights a ton!

Yeah, I was just looking at the rosewood Tele bodies in the showcase.  Even the hollow ones are heavy!  :lol:

good luck, dave. what are you thinking of assembling?

I've just placed the order with Warmoth  :)





Swamp Ash '72 Thinline body (weight 3lbs 10ounces) and a maple 1-11/16" nut Pro series neck with '59 roundback profile (PRS Wide-Fat, basically) and Stainless Steel 6105 jumbo frets  :D

It's having a black-white-black scratchplate, a chrome hardtail strat bridge, vintage tuners, CTS pots, CRL switch, an old paper in oil capacitor, Schaller matt chrome finished straplocks and TV Jones Classic pickups!

Should be fun to put together!
