I put that Tele together about 9 years ago with the intention of selling it. I'd sold 3 or 4 other 'reliced' builds as an attempt to create a little cottage industry for myself. I tried on TM for about a month at 2K but had no bites. Subsequently it has become my favorite Tele.

The body is a vintage spec All Parts made out of swamp ash. I wanted alder but they sent me ash by mistake. I went with it and in the end I think that's played a big roll in the guitar sounding so good.
The paint and relicing was done by myself.

Might just be easier to buy a blank body.

Who's Tele is that and how much do they want for it

A) mine
B) your first born

Having heard it, that seems fair.


What pickups are in it?

Heat gun, paint scrapper and quite a lot of elbow grease.
Once I polished her up though it was a very satisfying experience!
