Building a Fender Telecaster Guitar – Part 2 – The Neck

Canadian maple neck with 21 jumbo frets, tusq nut, trussrod opening on headstock, wooden trussrod skunk stripe (not pictured) and test fitted Grover tuners. It has the c-shape neck and the 10mm tuner holes.

The neck is made from Canadian maple with maple fingerboard, for that extra bit of twang. Crafted in Japan in satin finish.
