ive got about 10 projects running at any given time nowadays, as a lose and regain interest
so, about 2 weeks ago i score this, but havent had a chance or the willpower to do anything with it really.
Peavey Generation series metal tele. Made in the USA (found out about 4 days after i got it) HS config, kahler spyder, peavey actives. Got it FREE in exchange for putting the hardware (except the spyder) on a cheap tamiyo wtf ever that is. dude just wanted a trem, and the guitar has a kahler ripoff thats ambidexterous already . its just got the hole on the right side full up crap i just need to yank out.
anyways, so this comes only with the spyder, which a brief thread convo with lee leads me to believe is crap, but goes for decent cash on ebay, so yesway
has a cool finish, but outrageously thick, per peavey standard.
but i want an actual tele of sorts for my standard scale psuedo baritone project, so what do i do? take the neck off durr
heres the kciker. fretwork is in GREAT shape levelwise, but the board and neck have shrunk up, so the edges need milling, but thats an easy fix.
whats it made of? 2 pieces of flamed maple with a niiice ebony board you say? huh?
one deadish spot in the flame, which is a bit more visibly flamed still in person than pics
the luth at work tole me the mix of dye to use to stain the grain right there to try and get it to balance a bit more with the rest of the flame.
So, im waiting on materials to build a new beveling file since mine is lost, and ill bevel it, polish up the frets and board, and definish the neck.
i jokingly asked lee if he had a spare mexican tele body, and hes hooking it up with a project warmoth tele body that needs some finish work (which is great since i have godawful finish ideas for this anyways ), as well as some other basic goodies. props to lee for helping out a brokeass college kid
anybody who figures the finish (that i didnt show clearly) gets a yesway smiley on their page!
Those Peavey two piece necks are awesome. My buddy has one that he bolted to a Tele body that he built, and it has one of the most comfortable profiles that I have ever played. Excellent choice.
