Sounds like a hell of an idea and a great way to pitch in. Kudos. You might want to do the decal on the pickguard, though, so the guitar itself can be used without it. Some people might not dig the mascot (what is it, by the way?) and the pickguard can be removed/replaced easily enough. Also, I'd go with the green: Daphne Blue might be popular with the X chromosome set, but tele players are mostly guys. Guys would probably be more partial to the green ... or maybe that's just me.
high school orchestra. She plays cello in the orchestra and they have to do several fund raisers each year for trips and stuff. Last spring they went to Disney World to perform. My idea is to build a tele style in the school colors dark green/light blue and somehow incorporating the school mascot on there via a decal that can be clear coated on the body. So here are my design ideas: GFS Paulownia Tele body in British Racing Green with a light blue mirrored pickguard, rosewood board, mascot decal. GFS Paulownia Tele body in Daphne Blue with white pickguard, maple board, mascot decal to tie in the school colors vs all that green. Mrs. Clubber wants to know our cost for the parts and has to get approval from the orchestra boosters at the school...:facepalm: Whatcha think?

that's a whole guitar, dude! why would you part it out? it's sweet as is!
08-15-2011 05:07 PM
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...

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.
