Re: Project Tele Finally Done

I bet that thing sounds great! It looks very classy with the black and the pearloid pickguard... Why did you choose a graphite nut over all the other options you had?

Partly because I heard good things, and partly for looks.

Looks like an amazing guitar. I'm a sucker for a well built, hotrodded tele. Lucky you!

Re: Project Tele Finally Done

Very nice Cid. I love binding, especially double binding on a Tele. Are those Warmoth parts or some other custom parts?
