New Guitar

My friend Mattias recently moved to Hawaii and had to travel light. He left me this kit telecaster that he built himself. It was a nice looking guitar, but had some sound and playability issues. I decided to put some work into improving it.

Mattias finished it in a beautiful stained flame pattern. I added new classic Fender telecaster tuners, a new jack, and new DiMarzio Area T pickups.

The boring white pick guard was upgraded to a 3 ply black sparkle.

The nut was recut, and it had a total fret levelling and refinishing. Check out how low that action is! No buzz anywhere on the neck!

Special thanks to Mike and Jerry at Players Guitars in Worth, IL for their amazing work. I have a lot of guitars, and this is easily the best playing one I own.
