Ready for finish sanding and your routing. This is the same wood we use to build our guitars. Nice tonal quality. Weight of unrouted body ranges from about 4 lbs 8 oz to 4 lbs 12.

50AT GR Alder Guitar Body-single cutaway 50's style, 2 piece, side joined, unfinished alder. The alder was locally grown here in Washington State and the bodies are completely bench made in our shop. This would be a fun project to try your hand at a distressed/reliced finish. Body template used was made from an original 1950's Tele, with string ferrule holes slightly uneven for a true 50's vibe. Fender did not use a jig for the string ferrules, they were done one at a time and this can clearly be seen on authentic 50's Teles. Neck pocket is standard 2 3/16" Fender style and will work with the necks we carry or USA manufactured Tele necks. String ferrule holes are inset for flush fit.

FAQ: How is bridge string spacing measured?
String through holes in the bridge are measured center to center from two outside holes:
This one has 2 1/8" spacing.
If you are working on a new build, measure string through holes on front of body.

Tele Bridges-Aged hardware takes a few days, please be patient.

PICKGUARDS for Tele®
Complete list below except Lefty
About Aged or Distressed pickguards: The aged pickguards listed below were added to compliment our distressed bodies. If you choose to purchase one of our distressed pickguards or have a very old pickguard, please note the following: Don't use guitar polish or other liquids on vintage or aged plastic or hardware. Polish should be sprayed on a soft cloth, not directly on the guitar. Aged plastics will acquire grey smudges if hands are dirty, sweaty or wet. We recommend having clean, dry hands when installing a pickguard, pickup covers or knobs or doing any work on the guitar. Our aged pickguards are not recommended for people whose hands sweat excessively when playing guitar.
