  • Be it ever so humble...



    I decided to look for a Squier Standard because it fit my budget, I prefer the necks on them to the CVs and I prefer the pickups in them to the MIMs. Found this one for $150 including case. Indonesia, made in 2000 at the Cor-tek factory.

    I generally prefer maple fingerboards on Teles, but this rosewood one is super sweet.
    I don't want to sell my music. I'd like to give it away because where I got it, you didn't have to pay for it.

    • Currently my only Tele. It's a partscaster using an Agave Blue MIM body, a Warmoth fatback birdseye maple neck, vintage tuners, a brass Fat Head, a Lollar Charlie Christian neck pickup and a GFS 50s bridge pickup.

      I think sometime this year, I'll do some sort of swapping around, either putting the Warmoth neck and the CC pickup in my Squier 51, or I'll buy another body. I like the guitar as it is, but from the beginning, I wanted to have a wood finish on this project. I originally planned on a heavily chambered ash or mahogany body either with the same wood for the top or possibly wenge.

            that looks great. Did the fathead make a difference tonally? What do you think of the CC pup?

              • Apologies if I've posted this already, but this is my one and only Tele, a homebuilt job a friend did for me. I'd love to get more Teles but I need to keep a lid on the finances for the foreseeable future.



                It has a set of BG pickups calibrated for 500k pots, Callaham hardware, one-piece ash body and a Warmoth fatback neck.

                  LOVE the Charlie Christian! It's definitely a unique pickup. I'd had the hots for one for a couple years and, to be honest, was 60% of the reason I built it up.

                  Not sure how much of a difference the Fat Heat makes, but I can't imagine it hurts sustain or teh toanz.

                          Do you realise that you could make dozens of exotic Teles with slab bodies out of that huge tree back there?

                              • Ooohhh... how do you like the SSVs?

                                Are they wired to split? How do you like the neck pickup split?
