Comments: This was my first guitar build. I thought I would try to make a mid 70s TL clone. I upgraded most of the hardware including the tuners, bridge, pots, and the pickups. I used the Fender Tex-mex pickups. I finished the body with a black grain filler, a walnut stain, then tru-oil. I made the water slide decals with an ink jet printer on photoshop. I even attempted to inlay a purely decorative skunk stripe. It was a hoot to put together. I’m already planning my next build.
