Ive been up for about 32 hours. At about three in the morning yesterday, i decided to try and complete this Texas Tele.
Just the body and the neck..so after 12 hours of wiring, rewiring, taking the neck off a dozen times to shim it right, restringing it a bunch of time, adding everysingle thing including string trees , strap buttons, and then setting it up for 3-4 hours.
I cut this pickgaurd myself from some tanned cowhide a while ago, but it didnt fit when I put it together, so I proceeded to butcher the body and the guard.
Also, I went balistic on the neck pocket;
TIP- easy does it.
Actually, the neck pocket is the thing that brings me down about the whole thing. It makes me sick to see how i butchered it..but this was a some piecemeal crap I got off ebay a long time ago. Im just glad it went together.
plays good sounds good.
I want to get a branding iron and put a brand on it. I put black hardware on it black so it would kind of harken to wrought iron and sh*t. I also got someone to cut me a Tele body made out of hardware store Pine. I lacquered it with Nitro.
Here it is..the Texas Tele..wild as the West Texas Wind!;
