Tele Project 2pc Walnut Body 2pc Reclaimed Purpleheart Top, Rock Hard Maple 25.5" to 24.75" Conversion Tele Neck Purpleheart Fretboard!

Note: Will sell separately! Send me an offer!

The Body and Neck pictured are the ones you will receive. In the last 3 pictures I wiped the body and fretboard down with naphtha to show what they will look like with a clear finish!

I have several guitar project I am not going to get to so it is time to pass them on so someone else can build their dream guitar. Since this is a project some sanding to the body and fitment will be required. The neck and body fit is will me snug after some finish is applied. 

This body neck combo will build a really nice very unique Telecaster style guitar. This neck is a 25.5" to 24.75" scale Conversion Neck. Perfect for those that want a Telecaster but prefer the shorter Gibson scale! The streaks and worm holes in the top are supposed to be there and were caused by an infestation (don't worry, all the bugs are gone). The top is from some reclaimed lumber that sat in a wood storage shed for a long time. The the body itself is from some premium walnut bound in white.

Note: I stock every part to finish this guitar like pickups from several different winders including my own brand, top brand electronics like CTS, CRL, Oak Grigsby Switchcraft, PIO, Orange Drop, Mallory Vit T, Russian PIO Mojo Dijon capacitors., Tuners, Tremolos and several types of nuts.
