Description:  My first attempt at guitar building. From your base kit I opted for the Seymour Duncan Hot Tele pickups. I prefer a Rosewood fret board so I sourced that elsewhere. Added a modern Tele string through body bridge, Graphtec nut and bridge adjusters, and Grover locking machine heads. The finish is my attempt at creating a well used vintage Tele so I used a dark stain to create a sunburst effect then purposely sander through a few spots then used amber shellac for the antique effect. The final finish is a satin lacquer. Plays quite good and the pickups are killer.
