Replacement American Ash Telecaster body
We've been making bodies and necks for many years now, and we have achieved a reputation among builders and luthiers for producing wood products of the highest quality.
We use only hand selected hardwoods from the USA to ensure consistency and quality, and manufacture everything in our own factory. We run a relatively small operation, meaning we can make everything by hand, without the need for expensive CNC machinery, thus keeping the costs relatively low.
All our Telecaster bodies are made from 2-piece matched American ash.
All control panels and neck pocket pre routed
Neck pocket and strap pin holes pre-drilled

very well finished body inc pain and bindings. My only criticism is that the neck pickup wires are routed through the bridge pickup cavity. Everything gets a bit tight. I would have preferred routing from the neck directly to the control cavity.
Body of very high quality, superb wood grain, varnish incredible .. Simply perfect. Sending very fast, perfect packaging ..
I've been on the waiting list for when these were back in stock. So when I got the notification email I ordered straight away. I wasn't disappointed, great grain pattern, looks almost like one piece. The sunburst is just right and the vintage cream binding sets it off a treat. Has made an awesome 62 custom telecaster.
took a while coming back into stock, but boy was it worth the wait! Really impressed with the build quality of this body. Lovely three colour burst with cream binding and a beautiful finish. Well happy!
Nice grain, super finish, no faults found, is going to make a great looking guitar. Well packed and quick delivery, no hesitation in recommending Northwest Guitars for their bodies and parts.
