This XGP Tele body is now lighter in weight, with an average weight of under 5 lbs! We rout each body to exact 1961 Telecaster body specs... using MY OWN 1961 Tele Custom as the template. This is a level of quality that YOU HAVE NOT SEEN at anything near this price. 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 body has the traditional Tele single coil rout, and accommodates all GFS pickups as well as Genuine Fender brand pickups perfectly. These are FULL VINTAGE THICKNESS- a bit over 1 3/4" thick! 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!
