New Body for a New Project


Active member
Having fallen in love with the Jazzmaster shape for my 3-pickup "Green Special" (sadly not pictured here as of yet; need to take new pics and share them), I decided that I'd use it to fill a Tele-shaped hole in my lif-- I mean collection. And here it is: the core for my new Jazzcaster/Telemaster/Offset Tele build.
As you can see below, I tried to visually pay a little homage to George Harrison's rosewood Tele. "But why use mahogany and not rosewood?" you ask. In a word, "Expense." However, Warmoth's data on the two tonewoods' "darkness" seems to be comparable so we'll see how it turns out.
Here are the specs for your perusal:
