XGP- eXcellence in Guitar Parts.This is our best.The best woods, The best woodworking, the best finish. Cut from hand selected, kiln dried hardwoods for super sustain, great resonance and very moderate weight. Most of these are under 5 lbs! . We rout each body to exact 1961 Telecaster body specs... using MY OWN 1961 Tele Custom as the template. A super flamey bookmatched top is fully bound for a very custom look. This is a level of quality that YOU HAVE NOT SEEN at anything near this price. This body is cut for two single coil pickups and fits all of our vintage-spec bridges and pickguards, but also looks great with NO pickguard! 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. We think this body compares VERY favorably to bodies sold in the $200-$400 range. BUY DIRECT and save!
