A while back, I had the idea that a Tele Jr build would be a cool idea. You know: like an SG Junior, but shaped like a Tele? So... long story short, I did it. Finished setting it up yesterday, and thought I'd share some pics here. Warmoth parts: solid mahogany body, paduak neck w/ figured ziricote fingerboard. Fralin Noiseless P-90 pickup. Hipshot bridge, Kluson tuners. Red aluminum knobs. Essentially you've got your standard vol & tone controls, plus a bit of trickery w/ the 3-way switch. In the middle it functions like normal. There's an extra cap wired to ground when in the "neck" position, so you can kinda pull off darker jazzier tones. The "bridge" position has another cap, this one wired like a G&L or Reverend's "bass contour" control. Basically instead of attenuating the treble, it attenuates the bass. When played clean, it's a nasally almost out of phase sound. But distorted or even with fuzz it sounds killer! Really helps cut through. Custom logo on neck plate. Black/red/black ply pickguard... keeps the red & black aesthetic going, right? Never had any experience with Ziricote before. It feels pretty similar to rosewood, maybe a little slicker. It sure looks like rosewood from a distance, but up close it reveals some pretty neat grain patterns. This was a fun project, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I knew I wanted to utilize the 3-way switch somehow, and while I expect this guitar will live in the middle position most of the time, the other 2 options are kinda neat. Finishing: it's a fun hobby I've been getting into lately. If I had the skills and (perhaps more importantly) the tools & space to build from scratch I definitely would. Someday, for sure! I've definitely got a TON of respect for those of you who post in this forum who do. But finishing has been a monumental pain in the @$$ which while doing it I question why I'm subjecting myself to it... but when it's all said & done, the results are rewarding and I find myself itching for another. This one isn't perfect, but I learned a fair bit -- knowledge to use for the next one, for sure.
