Building a telecaster


I decided to build a telecaster. Instead of just buying one from Guitar Fetish I decided to build one using cheap parts.

The body is a GFS XGP poplar body.

The bridge is on a boat from china. It is a Wilkinson licensed tray type with brass saddles.

The neck is a GFS XGP telecaster neck in vintage amber.

Dragonfire (who?) pickups. Extremely cheap and decent reviews. Pickups are second in importance to the neck. Why go cheap? If it all works out I’ll buy good ones.

This neat, but almost certainly insanely cheap set of electronics. Quality wise. It was certainly insanely cheap price wise.

Pickguard is kinda nice.

First step is sanding and painting the body.
