The new project

Mrs F bought me a Telecaster kit as my Christmas gift. It has an ash body, maple neck with rosewood fingerboard. I have some stain from Wudtone that I will use on it.

I will post the progress once I get going on it

  10. I had absolutely no idea you could buy a kit and build your own guitar! Is this an actual Telecaster from Fender or is it a knock-off? Does it come with pickups? Never mind...I'll Google it.
