Is it a Tele or a Strat?
Found this unusual Telecaster body with Stratocaster routing. This could be a project!
Hard to find a reasonable neck to fit the pocket. This one just wasn’t quite right.
Meanwhile work on the body could continue. Decided to use a “Denim” look wood dye form Crimson Guitars.
A few coats later now for sealing and a polish. Takes days to achieve a good finish.
Looking a bit more like it
Had to modify the neck pocket a bit for a good neck I found.
The neck now fits just a bit more work needed
All done, with my very own branding “Strelicaster” (not as easy as I first thought), also should have used a better 5 way switch and after resting a while I think more work on the frets would improve the playability. I may do this work later, for now I need to play it.
