Warmoth Telecaster Project - For Sale


Recommended Posts

Under Construction: Will complete later.

For sale I have my Warmoth Telecaster project. I've had this for a long time and I never find the time to get it all put together. I've got less and less time these days and an expensive car hobby (rebuilding cars = expensive!) So, I think it is time to get shot of some more items which are filling my room.

This morning I opened my wardrobe to look at all the items and to my disgust I found a massive chip in the body. The guitar has been sitting in its original packaging which is heavy duty cardboard. Someone (myself or someone else in the house) must have dropped something on the box and its really left its mark. For this reason the body will be significantly reduced in price.

I have grouped together some items to sell together...for example the neck will come with the tuners etc. I have also included individual prices on each item...although if I can sell a group I would rather do that.

Group A: Complete Project = 350

Group B: Neck & Associated Parts = 125

Group C: Pickups = 70

Group D: Body = 90

Group E:

Group A: Complete Project

Buy everything as seen in the picture below for


For a list of parts see the individual groups below.

  • 10"-16" compound radius fretboard

  • 25 1/2" Scale 22 frets

Quarter Sawn Hard Maple w/ matching maple finger board

Hard Maple (Acer saccharum):

This is the most traditional Fender neck wood. Dense, hard and strong, offering great sustain and stability. The tone is bright. Maple must be finished to protect from warping. The figure varies greatly and does at times contain some Birdseye. Most often flatsawn with quartersawn available as an option (extra cost).

1-11/16" (42.85mm)

1-3/4" (44.45mm)

Back contour:

Fat back contour.

Similar to PRS neck in feel. More information on back contours is available at the following page:

Fret sizes:

Again similar to the size PRS use. I cannot recall the exact number. Need dressing before being playable.

Total Original Price of Neck: $302.00 = ~165

Current Price of Neck: 100

Graph Tech String Trees:

Graphite. 500% less friction than normal string trees. Keeps guitar in tune when preforming bends by allowing the string to return to correct pitch. In combination with the graphite nut this guitar should have very stable tuning. More information at the following link:

Group C: Pick-ups 70

Seymour Duncan Hot Lead (STL-2)
Hot Rhythm (STR-2)

From official website:

Hot true single-coil pickup with increased output. Great for country pop, rockabilly, blues, jam, and classic rock.

Imagine taking the Vintage models and turning up the output. You get a fat and full punch in both the low frequencies and mid-range, yet it retains the muscular twang of the Vintage. The sensitive coil combined with custom length flat pole pieces provides more sustain.

Available for both rhythm (neck) and lead (bridge) positions. The rhythm pickup has a similarly designed high-output coil for full, clear sound and comes with a chrome-plated brass cover. Often used in the lead position and matched with a lower output rhythm pickup like the STR-1 Vintage.

Original Price: 50 ea.

Current Price:70 pair



Group D: Body 90


Standard Tele Replacement Body



Alder is used extensively for bodies because of its lighter weight (about four pounds for a Strat body) and its full sound. Its closed grain makes this wood easy to finish. Alder's natural color is a light tan with little or no distinct grain lines. It looks good with a sunburst or a solid color finish. Because of its fine characteristics and lower price, Alder is our most popular wood and it grows all around us here in Washington State. The tone is reputed to be most balanced with equal doses of lows, mids and highs. Alder has been the mainstay for Fender bodies for many years and its characteristic tone has been a part of some of the most enduring pieces of modern day contemporary music.

Original price of paint: $210 = ~115

As can be seen in the pictures below there has been a large chunk of paint removed whilst in storage. Not sure how this happened but I am really annoyed. For this reason I have put the body for sale at material cost as the finish has been ruined. There is also a small dent on the rear of the guitar. This was cause by my watch when fitting some hardware. Stupidly left it on instead of removing it.

Payment & Postage:


I can accept: paypal, cheque or cash for any of the items.


I can deliver in and around Aberdeen within reason. I can also post anywhere in the UK at additional cost to the buyer. Postage costs will be as required by the post office. I'm not looking to jack up prices with large postage costs.
