My second build is a version of the awesome Fender Telecaster Deluxe that lasted only a few years in the ’70s until it was finally reissued 30 years later. Body and neck both from Warmoth. I finished both with nitrocellulose lacquer and distressed the finished so that it appeared 30 years old. The pick-ups are Lollar Regal Humbuckers and the best pick-ups on the market. Period. All Fender components and like my previous build I did my own headstock decal. This guitar plays so well that I loaned it to renowned Canadian musician Bob Egan (of Blue Rodeo) at his request so that he could play it.
