    A friend had asked me to build him a Telecaster last month. Most of the parts came in drips and drabs. Basically it's almost finished, just need to mount the neck. I tested the pickups with a screwdriver, the volume and tone are working so far, that's a relief.

    Kmise Roasted Neck $65
    Moon Laser Body $62
    Wilkinson Tuners $25
    American Standard Bridge $17
    Guitar Madness Neck PUP $17
    Tele Bridge PUP $20
    Misc parts $18

    Looks so nice I don't want to sell it now.

    Gonna mount the neck tomorrow. Hope there are no issues. It's going to smoothe right now.

    Your friend is very fortunate to have you as a friend.
    Looks great. Really like the knots on the back of the body. Gives it a unique character!
