Congratulations to Aaron for winning Guitar of the Month for April with his Warmoth parts mutt Tele! Some light fabrication work and a final assembly resulted in this electric/acoustic hybrid.









Quick Specs:

  • Warmoth body and neck
  • Swamp ash body (chambered 1-piece with 1-piece swamp ash top)
  • Pau ferro neck (Fender size frets)
  • Schaller mini-locking tuners
  • Fishman VT Powerbridge
  • Fender Texas Special pickups
  • 4-way wiring

Congrats, Aaron. The Foo Fighter suck! :vince:

Beautiful tele :yesway:

I love that pau ferro neck. I've never seen one before.
I hadn't either until this one. My bass has a pau ferro fretboard, which I've always liked. It's a lot like maple tonally, but doesn't need a finish, like rosewood. Feels even better than it looks.

And it's sexy :D

I never understood how people can play guitar in their crotch. :chestrocker:
To be fair, the strap's set for me, and I'm a little taller I think, so it doesn't ride so low on me. But really, a Tele just feels right a little lower.

I've heard that Pau Ferro is the middle ground between rosewood and ebony :shrug: It's more like maple you say?

Haven't spend enough time with either maple or ebony to say for sure, but it's a nice hard, snappy wood compared to rosewood.
