"But no cigarette burn decal?"

I have a pack of Lucky's around here some ware to add seasoning if needed!

OK, so I just went back to GFS and they still have this stuff available. I have a nice pair of DiMarzio HBs in a box so I ordered a set neck Tele in black with cream binding for $109. It's routed for HBs top mount. I got a shorty Wilkenson compensated 3 saddle bridge for it too.

Gimme a couple of weeks and I post pics when she's done.

Thanks guys but it's a copy/paste thing. Other than measuring up the bridge location and center there is nothing real technical about putting it together. I do like the look!

Very cool Hammond!
You gotta love "Erector Set" builds!

How's the neck shape and profile feel?

The headstock pic looks like it's fairly wide at the nut, but it could be an optical illusion.

Can't wait to see the tele too!

I'd call the neck a soft C. I'd like it just a little chunkier but I can easily live with for the little I have invested. radius feels 9.5-10 but is no doubt flatter.

Width at the nut I didn't measure however the nut was pre-scored a little narrow and I didn't feel like swapping it out. I play narrow and wide both with no issues. Lucky I guess.

Thanks Hammond. Good info.
Thanks for the link too. If not for the shipping & exchange rate, I would be *seriously* tempted.

Plus, I've done to project guitars in as many months! Need to reign in a bit. (for a while at least :^)

WOW. Nice work there!

It's amazing that we can get a virtually complete set neck guitar platform for a lousy $100.

Unbelievable.

That looks really nice. I think I need one. Maybe green sparkles, with matching clogs of course.

I do not need the red bound tele...I do not need the red bound tele...I do not...

YES I DO!!!

One question...is it 10 MM headstock holes, so it will take Klusons?

Yeah, 10mm. I mounted up a set of Schaler locking with no issues. Holes are modern size. Adaptor bushing would be needed foe true vintage style tuners.

Yes you need it. No I didn't need two but later I found out I did! That pair of pickups I had just sitting there needed some love.

Ok, the black bound set neck Tele body showed up. Very cool looking and well built. The finish on this one is not as nice as the Strat and there is a ding in the top about 1/8" just below the neck PU. They got a bit of paint on the binding too. This will clean up easily.

It could use a final buff but if it were any other color than black you wouldn't see that.

I'll post pics in a new thread once I start work on it.

Might be a bit longer than I thought. I'm changing bridge models and had to order it. Going with vintage Strat hardtail and just a trim ring on the bridge PU.
