Hi

I just finished putting this guitar together from scratch. This is my first comlete assembly, but I have had alot of experiance fiddeling with my other guitars, changing hardware and pickups and so on.

The parts come from Warmoth and most of the tools from Stewmac including setup kit, fretting kit, straightedges and alot more (unbelievable how many tools you need for a job like this).

I must say this is my best playing guitar in my large collection, it´s the same quality as Fender Deluxes or even better.


Body: One piece Swamp Ash, Blue Burst finish.
Neck: One piece high grade flame maple neck with some Birdsey pattern and abalone inlays.

Hardware: Gotho Telecaster bridge, Gotho vintage tuners, Seymour Duncan Broadcaster bridge pickup and matching Vintage neck pickup.

The setup is just perfect. I bought this Peterson Strobo tuner, and it is very accurate so I can get very good intonation. But the frets have to be leveled and crowned for it to be absouloutly perfect, specially if you like very low action, but I like kind of medium action, not to high and not very low either.

Now I can use the tools to freshen up my other guitars and make them equally good.....no need to take them to the Luthier any more. I never did anyway, too expensive for so many guitars, and the 2 or 3 here in my country are very busy, and the guitar stores only make them worse. Best way to learn it yourself, it´s not that hard and you always have your guitar in best playing shape possible.
