My version of the Telecaster guitar. Mahogany used throughout is reclaimed from a 30yr old front door. Wilkinson pickups were used and sound very nice.wax finish.

I play guitar, and always wanted to build my own. I once tried with a CNC but my experience was too low at the time. This guitar looks good. It plays well? Did you make the neck and everything? Is there a truss rod in there? I like the looks of it and is this your own name brand…....?

Getneds the guitar really holds a note, might be because of the mahogany has a good tight grain.neck is carved from 3 pieces of 1/4 sawn 1”x3” glued together edgeways.Truss rod is there, finger board was pre cut i just had to fit the fretwire and markers.all parts were got from stewmac apart from the mahogany.
thats the shiney guitar brand due to sell millions (got to think big dont ya!)
rosewood sorry about the pics forgot to rotate themDesigned the headstock with the use of solidworks, found it hard to get an eye pleasing shape. slight difference from Gibson head.
thanks for looking, and comments.
