    Based on a superb one piece Swamp Ash Guitarbuild® body here’s my Hybrid Telecaster.

    I first stained the body in deep-blue and lightly sprayed it with PU varnish, to finish the process. I wet-sanded several times with different grades and applied two different polish pastes to give a light gloss effect. You can nicely feel the wood grain under the fingers.

    The guitar is done and it’s now a Hybrid Telecaster with two very powerful Humbuckers, Seymour Duncan SH6 in bridge and Kent Armstrong Rocker HRO, a thick " Chunky C " Mighty Mite USA neck with matching headstock and a very heavy Gotoh Japan trem block for a lot of power and sustain.

    Hi, Justin and Levin, so sorry but I’ve never checked this particular page again since the pics were uploaded.

    Thanks you so much Justin, best compliment ever !!

    Ian, I didn’t spend too much since the Hum are 2nd hand same for the tuners and trem. All quality hardware but half the price on the 2nd hand market.
    What is really important I think is buying the right neck, since bodies from Guitarbuilds are top notch don’t ever put a chinese or squier crap ; )
    Take one of the “Fender licensed” brands, WD, Mighty Mite, AllParts, Warmoth, Musikraft. The first 3 brands have very fair prices, you can start at a hundred $ with a very good neck and Fender licensed.
