how to build a tele...

a basic guide to guitar building


Part two of my "family of three" group of guitars. This was an experiment in the differences in electrical components V construction materials. Although a much easier shape to construct than the telecaster due to it's obvious lack of contours, this guitar had some difficulties of it's own. The biggest complication was lining and drilling the string ferrules in the back of the body, to load the strings in from behind.

The following is a basic tutorial on how I went about building this tele, and showing how to overcome some of the issues that can and do pop up during the build.
