The book describes how to obtain the discrete components that could make a Telecaster-ish guitar. It spells out some of the pitfalls you will encounter as one Tele is definitely not equal to all other Tele's - there are interesting little details to watch out for. Then it guides you through the actual building of the guitar, sequence of events, electronics and so on until at last the instrument is stringed up and has a first test in an actual amplifier. I follow the same sequence of events in my workshops, where participants put a Tele together in 4 hours flat. When it actually produces a guitar-ish sound, the most important part follows - the set up (intonation, action etc). A good setup makes a mediocre guitar into a good instrument: The reverse is also true; a $10, 000 vintage Tele with a bad setup will be a lousy instrument from a player point of view. The whole process is clarified by about 100 pictures in colour.12.11 Standard Tele wiring In case you get lost during modifications here - Figure 12-8 - is a drawing that enables you to go ...
