    that's a whole guitar, dude! why would you part it out? it's sweet as is!


    it's already parted out...the neck and all the hardware is going to EG's kid's tele project...the pickups and pickguard will be spammed...the body would be spammed too, if you don't want it...

    ...it was alot of effort to discover that I'm simply not a tele person...

      Ideally, if we have enough participation I would love to build two guitars - one for the school raffle and one to raffle here among the donors. Due to time constraints, I don't want to do any finishing so I am doing the school's guitar in a pre finished body with their colors. I would love to use that body for the HCEG donor raffle though!

        Man up and make a double bass!!

        On a more serious note, great idea, my parts box is unfortunately empty, though I'd be happy to buy a ticket and/or provide useful witticisms at every turn.

        EDIT: I lied, I have one Gretsch neck humbucker from a 5122 and 1 Orange drop tone cap if you want them.

            Sounds like a fun idea.
            GFS Paulownia Tele body in Daphne Blue with "MINT GREEN" pickguard, maple board, mascot decal to tie in the school colors would be a fine looking guitar.

                OK...we can work out a deal that will be beneficial to us both...

                ...I also have 2 sets of genuine Fender tuners in the parts box...an old set of "F" split-top klusons and a set of sealed Fender minis...we can work out something for them as well...

                  Chris, Let me know if there is anything I can help with. Not that it helps with a tele build but I've prolly got a pedal or two I could part with.

                      Hey Clubber rather than you buy a new neck I would be willing to donate a 1997 Squier Affinity Strat neck. If you cover the shipping cost it's yours. That has to be way cheaper than buying a new neck, even if it a mighty mite. The only issues is that it probably needs new tuners and some fret work because of the frets are high.

                      But like I said, it's yours if it goes to your daughters school group. Oh... I would also like to purchase a ticket!

                        Thank you! I really do want to use new necks for these builds. I want this to be better than anything they pull off the rack for under a grand.
