Hi guys! wink.gif

Last week i got my home made Telecaster finished and now i would like to know what you think about it! I`v bought the parts and electronics at www.gitarrdelar.se , its a Swedish guitar-parts shop but is also available in english if you guys want to take a look.

The parts is from different brands and not everything fits 100% with each other so sometimes you may have to modify some. Im very happy with the result and I was very suprised when i couldn`t find a gold and black Telecaster on the Internet so i desided to make my own! wink.gif
The guitar itself is in very good quality and it doesnt feel like a homebuilt guitar when you play on it. The part that im most satisfied with is definitely the PICKUPS! Oh my god i tell you, the pickups deliver an incredible Telecaster-sound and they even sounds better then most single coil pickups iv ever heard I shit you not! And for what price!? For incredible $88! A guy that wrote an review on the pickups wrote that they sounded better then the pickups on he`s REAL American Telecaster laugh.gif

The final pricetag on this beauty was about $660 and it was clearly worth it!
Unfortunately i dont have any recording equipment so i cant record this baby sad.gif

Let me know what you guys think of her! rolleyes.gif

Nice job, dude! Let me ask you - how long did it take you (in terms of hours) would you say?

Awesome! I love telecasters biggrin.gif Though, my dream tele is with a neck humbucker and tele bridge single coil, though maybe a joe barden pickup in the bridge would be good (pickup danny gatton used). You can find them in the tele 72 customs, but they're made in mexico and have a different pickup selector/volume and tone knob setup and different pickguard.

I have a picture I drew of a tele I'm going to build someday.. I'll upload it sometime smile.gif
