Pencil Tele part 3

Continued from Part Two…

So the pencil tele looked nearly finished by the end of the last page, but there was still a lot of work to be done, and this also took a lot of time because some life changes meant that I did almost no work on my guitars for several months.

Most of the interesting stuff happened in the last two parts, and the final stages were doing the finish and assembling everything. There’s not much more to say about that, so let’s just get to some pictures of the finished guitar!

This guitar was in production for so long that I was heartily sick of it by the time it was finished! However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it’s really nice to play. The Irongear Twin Steel pickups have coil taps, and this works well. It’s a bit of a strange beast and it’s not perfect, but it turned out pretty well in the end.
