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
Weight - 2.8kg (approx)
Neck pocket depth - 17mm
Neck pocket width 55.5mm (2 3/16")
Neck pocket length - 76mm
Body thickness - 46mm

Finished to an exceptionally high standard in POLYURETHANE

Neck pocket made to standard Fender Specifications
Our bodies are compatible with genuine Fender necks

All our Tele bodies are built to Vintage spec to accommodate the vintage "Ash-Tray" Bridge. Click here to view
(modern bridges require string-thru holes in different positions and so will not fit this body)

String-thru holes made to accommodate "vintage knurled edge ferrules". Click here to view
Please note: Due to the many different tremolo systems available, we are unable to pre-drill any trem mounting holes in our bodies. Should you wish to do this yourself we have created a very easy-to-follow video tutorial on the subject which you can view here

    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.

    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.
