Mahogany Telecaster


Recommended Posts

For my second build I'm planning a mahogany (body and neck) telecaster but I'm concerned about the mahogany making the sound too warm or muddy so I'm asking you guys what I can to help retain some twang.

The first thing I'm doing is to use an ebony fretboard.

Other things I've considered:

500K pots

higher output pickups

Which do you think is the best route?

Thanks for your time.

I woudn't worry about mahogany being too warm or muddy. It'll bring out the mids a little more and make the guitar cut through better but you won't have the same attack on the notes compared to a maple neck.
