Bought a huge chunk of solid walnut 8/4 x 13.5" x 94", that means I'm on body build 1 of 4. Found some 62 Strat Blueprints, so here we go: So far layed out, rough cut, template started, planed, and checking out how parts will look together! Aside from the 6 vs 2 screws, is the modern tremolo routing the same as the vintage? Found a guy with a 2007 USA with a broken neck, offered him $225 for the pickups and tremolo bridge, need to discuss further tonight Already bought my Fender neck...next time, I'll try my own! *Started a new thread since the last was got off track with forum troubleshooting'*
I'm starting up a solid walnut Telecaster Deluxe build. The body is English walnut sides with Black American walnut center stripe. The top will be a goldtop with black pickguard and hardware. P-90 pickups with deluxe style controls. The neck will be Black American Walnut with a Rosewood board. Currently I have the body wood milled down, glued up, and rough cut to shape. The routed to shape. Got the neck milled down and roof cut. Then routed to shape and installed a Paduak skunk stripe. I will be updating this thread throughout the entire build.....
I just went an bought a piece of walnut lumber for some bodies. Found a craigslist ad for some 8/4 x 14" x 6'+ lengths for $8.75 bf. Planned on picking up a 6' piece for ~$120 to be able to make 4 bodies. The closest he had was a 13.5" w x 94" l, well I still had it in my head to make 4 bodies, so I just had him cut it in half (47"). Totally kicking myself on the way home, I could've got another ~17" l piece out of it!!! Stupid me, coulda made a Tele!! Well, now instead of $30/ body, I'm looking at $35. Still much better than the $69 I gave to Carvin for a chunk o' alder. Will be making some new bodies in the near future!!
