Hi everyone.
This is my second Warmoth build. My first build is in the Soloist forum of this site. It is under Swamp Ash Padouk Neck... or something to that effect.  :laughing7:
I love Tele bodies, but personally I've never really had a need for the "Tele sound". All of the Tele guitars I have have humbuckers in them. This one also has a humbucker.

Body:
Roasted Alder
Black
Routed for two P90s (to relieve some wood weight) and one humbucker.
Front control cavity
Contoured heel
Tummy cut
Forearm contour
7/8" jack hole

Neck:
Mahogany
Vintage Modern
Standard thin
Right hand reverse headstock
Ebony fretboard
10-16° compound radius
6150 nickel frets
Graphtec nut
Black grain filler
Boiled linseed oil
Dark walnut tung oil

Hardware:
Gold
Sperzel locking tuners
Graphtec string trees (gold screws)
Hipshot bridge
Black control cavity cover plate
Pearloid Esquire pickguard (gold screws)
Gold dome knob for volume
Black neck screws and ferrules.
Black Tele output jack

Electronics:
One bridge humbucker with gold cover.
Seymour Duncan Custom SH-5
One 500k volume pot
EMG output jack. (High quality)

Awesome pics and awesome work!

I just joined the forum, so please excuse any dumb questions.

I'm looking at building a strat from Warmoth and will be doing the contoured heel. I noticed that they sell the screws on the website for this, but when I contacted them, customer service said they were made to be used with a neck plate.

A good friend of mine suggested using the ferrules like you have, so I wanted to ask you about yours.

Did you get special screws or modify regular ones? Where did you get the ferrules?

Thanks in advance for any help! I'm hoping to get my order in soon!
