This XGP Custom Tele body is cut from solid Alder, same as they used on vintage guitars. The real deal wood! These match the real 1960s-1970s "Tele Custom" style body setup exactly. Correct vintage thickness- a touch over 1 3/4", correct USA spaced Tele Bridge mounting location, and cut to accommodate a neck humbucker up to and including the oversized Fender "Wide-Range" pickups or our own GFS Wide-Tone pickups. We sell pickguards to accomodate the vintage pickup AND pickguards to accomodate normal humbuckers!
The body is predrilled- with six top holes that line up perfectly with all vintage-correct tele bridges, and 6 rear ferrules holes that fit perfectly with our vintage spec 9mm ferrules with a 10mm shoulder, Item # K13, K14, and K15. This bridge position has the traditional Tele single coil rout, and accommodates all GFS pickups as well as Genuine Fender brand pickups perfectly.
The neck pocket is routed to a vintage correct 2 3/16" width, and fits our necks and most real Fender Brand necks perfectly. Take a good look- the thin, hard vintage finish, the perfect contours- this guitar will take all of our "Vintage" style telecaster bridges.
We think this body compares VERY favorably to bodies sold in the $200-$400 range. BUY DIRECT and save!
