Building a Vintage 1963 Lake Placid Blue Telecaster - The Parts
Click on each image below for a larger view.
This section presents pictures of the various parts that go into building a Telecaster guitar. I had searched for a "generic parts list" to use as a guide - no such luck. Fender does have documents on their website and that come with their guitars that list parts but at a high level and without the detail needed to ensure all the parts fit together.

So I created my own MS Excel spreadsheet with various parts, vendors (addresses, URLs) and costs so I could select various components and see the total cost for the project. I will post that document on this website soon.
