Anyone wanting to get any guitar parts?

Post by robthemac »

I'm looking at doing another Partcaster in the not too distant future. I'll probably get one of these https://www.guitarbuild.co.uk/products/tc-la-cab-2

If anyone is wanting anything, I'd be keen to buy together and share shipping costs (which are otherwise pretty prohibitive).

For anyone interest, I'm thinking a Tele body with one TV Jones-style pickup, single volume knob, metallic purple nitro finish and a one-piece baseball bat of a neck.

I'm keen. When are you thinking about doing the order?

Those body prices are outstanding.

Was thinking the same, getting a Tele Deluxe while I'm there! The necks are fucking expensive though.

For necks, I go to Warmoth. A bit pricier, but you have so many options and the quality is great.

When you specify lightweight Ash, not so much.

No need to remind him every 6 months.

Yeah the lightweight options make it add up. Can do NZD$225 for a two-piece alder Cabronita at 1.9kg though... That a bargain.
