Build #024: Lake Placid Blue nitro over a pine Telecaster style body, Seymour Duncan Broadcaster pickups and Allparts 10” radius C neck. I’m pleased with the minimal aging and playability. Read on for detailed specs and comments.
WEIGHT: 6pds 12oz.
BODY: Eastern pine body. I love how lightweight these are along with sounding fantastic.
FINISH: The layers of finish include vinyl sealer, primer, Lake Placid Blue nitro, clear and aged nitro. This is one of the lighter aged bodies that I’ve finished. There is minimal aging around the edges and some light finish checking in the paint. One of my favorites!
NECK: All Parts. 10" RADIUS, 21 TALL FRETS, TRO-C, .84" - .95", NUT 1-5/8". I’d describe the shape as a true medium C and a bit fuller than modern Fender necks but not as thick as the necks from Nash. I’ve rolled the fretboard edges and smoothed out the fret ends. Finished with vintage amber nitro spray. The back of the neck has been sanded for a broken in feel and is silky smooth. It has a mixture of black tea, vinegar, and steel wool to give it that aged/dirty look. Overall, this neck is very clean with almost no additional aging. I’ve tried a few different necks and keep coming back to the Allparts for comfort, shape and feel.
 
NUT: Graphtech TUSQ XL. Nut slots filed for comfortable action at first fret. Again, I’ve tried some less expensive nuts, but these are worth the price in sound.
 
TUNERS: Fender Road Worn
 
NECK PLATE: Fender Road Worn
 
STRING TREE: Fender Road Worn
 
PICKGUARD: Aged red tortoise with 8 screw holes. I really love how the tortoise looks against the LPB but it’s not for everyone. I also have a lightly aged mint pickguard shown in some of the photos. This seems to be more traditional for LPB guitars. Let me know if you’d prefer this one instead.
 
PICKUPS: Seymour Duncan Broadcaster neck and bridge. Hands down, my favorite for these pinecasters. I mostly build Esquire’s so I haven’t tried a lot of aftermarket neck pickups, but this is a natural match for the Broadcaster bridge and sounds great to my ears.
 
BRIDGE and SADDLES: Fender with brass saddles – lightly aged.
 
WIRING HARNESS: CTS Potentiometers, Oak Grigsby 3 Way Switch, Switchcraft #11 Jack, Orange Drop 715P Series .047µF / 600V Capacitor  
 
CONTROL PLATE AND KNOBS: Fender Road Worn. I use a lot of Fender parts because they are of good quality and fit the builds very nicely.
 
STRINGS: String Joy 10-48. I think they’re worth the price.
 
SETUP: Most settings resemble Fender’s Telecaster recommendations. These work well for me and are a good starting point. One of my favorite things about Esquires and Telecasters is how easily adjustable they are.
 
If you’re in the San Diego area, feel free to check it out in person. I will allow a 48-hour return, but the buyer will pay for shipping both ways and any additional fees.

*Includes new Fender gig bag. I have a new ash Momo bag I can sell and ship with the guitar for an additional $120.
