A While back I bought a tele body its for a real fender telecaster 6 string guitar.
Its a beautiful body as far as wood-grain goes. It is made from laminated Mahogany it appears to be a 3 piece body and about a full 1.5 inches thick. See pics below, Anyways I was going to build a regular tele out of it, But I already have a tele 6 string and im not even a guitar player.
So Im going to make it a telecaster 4 string bass guitar. Its going to take some imagination and some new parts but I think its going to be sweet. And the lightest Bass I own and im thinking of going fret-less on the neck.
Just cause i happen to have a fret-less neck laying around. And its going to be a right on the money 34 inches scale. Im going to go with a single P Bass pickup, Just like the 1951 P Bass`s ,1 pickup near the neck and did they growl. You might be familiar with the look of these bass`s they had the single pickup near the neck and covered with that metal cover every one called the ashtray the bodies back then looked more like a regular p bass body. I will update this post as it advances for now its wait for parts.
