    I finally had time (Thanksgiving break for teachers) to put together a guitar I've been collecting parts for. Im missing a few black screws and a black switch nob. So its technically not done but I just had to share.

    Neck: Fender replacement neck from WD music.

    Body: Nomoonlaser pine body

    Hardware: mostly generic parts.

    Pickups EMG tele set.

    It feels good and sounds great. I highly recommend using nomoonlaser for bodies. The cuts are great, the bodies are a fair price and everything lined up. 20201123_155631.jpg

    Thanks. I love the stained wood. I never had a tele before so I figured I build one for the fun of it.

    How do those EMG for Tele pickups sound? Can you get a nice clean tone from the neck?

    Here's a quick sound of it. straight line in, then a clean patch, then clean with some sustain, then a chorus clean I use a lot. All neck pick up. Sloppy playing but you can hear the tone.

    I like the clean tone. I put EMG SSH in my Jagmaster. Never looked back I love the sound. I like the humbucker the best.

    It has been a crazy year so far. It's a bit scary knowing what this is doing to the education system. Large learning gaps are being created. A ripple that will be felt for many years.

    I'd love to finish any song! haha. I have so many incomplete files on my computer. Last year I wrote a Christmas riff it was pretty cool. I'll try to dig it up. Maybe I'll make a new one.

    Nice job. I have 2 tele bodies from the same guy but I have a cedar barncaster and a alder one ( he said he doesn't do many alder ones). Also good choice on a solid neck. Killer build.
