I bought a raw telecaster body a while back and just got around to working on it. Here is some pics of it to start.



I sanded, stained with honey and ebony stain



Doing the clear coat tonight.

Neck came today, here it is mocked up

Excellent project! I never got involved with electronics (or is an electric guitar only electrical components?).

There is a company -lost the link- charging GOBS, literally, of money making Telecasters look like they've been beaten and abused across the world's stages for five decades ...

Here's an old rock'n'roller looking for a Tele. Not much cash, plays MD VA NC SC ... Looks are not important. It's all about sound.

You can put active components in and make them electronic but most are electric only. Basses are commonly active to boost the output.
