So earlier this year my Grandpa passed away. Being a long time woodworker (he taught me most of what i know) he had a garage full of 30-40 year old wood. In remembrance I decided to bring enough of the wood home to have a guitar built. Nothing crazy. Basic Tele in general. He sent me a link o the build progess and I figured I would post it up.

It has been so long since i used the uploader I no longer have a password there. Sad so here is the link for anyone curious.

Mostly cherry and cocobola. Hand wound pickups. hot bridge, p90 front), aged bronze hardware. pickguard made out of same material as fretboard. Fretboard inlays are the 4 card symbols (spades, hearts, diamonds, and clubs) with my grandpas wooden toyshop name inlayed at the 12th (all our of the body material)

Can't wait to get this thing.. I hope it is a fitting tribute.

That looks cool. So the body will be clear coated to show the laminate sections?

Also, your Grandpa had a wooden toyshop? That's super cool.

That's really cool Mickie and will be a nice tribute to him.
Look forward to seeing the finished guitar.

Yep. He worked full time managing a small mine/quarry and built wodden toys and small home items on the side. I grew up in that woodshop.

Great idea, looks though it's coming along nicely.
