Re: 7 string Telecaster.

OK its working now .
Work was thin on the ground and so I had a lot of time to kill so got carried away making bodies and necks out of the timber I had lying around .
I know I started a lot of projects and aint posted any pics of finished guitars but they will all be finished soon .

Here is the 7 string Tele I started last week.

Beech ,Acacia and mahogany centre stripe . These are all the last bits of timber I could salvage in the garage.

Birds eye Maple fingerboard blank just been thicknessed.

Re: 7 string Telecaster.

Found some dead cheap 2 way truss rods on the bay , an inch shorter than the normal ones I get but I get 2 rods for nearly half the price.

All glued up and clamped.

Re: 7 string Telecaster.

Very cool. Looks much better than the Agile Texan that one of my students gave me. Still looking for some decent pups for that one. Have you decided what pups you are using?
