Shipping Info

Replacement Swamp 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 swamp ash. 

Offering the same tonal qualities as regular ash, but lighter in weight, swamp ash is a preferred option for telecaster builds where weight reduction is an important consideration. Although cut from the same tree as regular ash, swamp ash is found towards the base of the trunk, where more water is stored. Once cut and dried, this excess water is lost, making the body up to a kilo lighter than a standard ash body.

    Amazing value for money, superb finish. The build was completed with a Mighty Mite tele' neck that I already had plus p/ups and hardware from various suppliers, again, that I already had in my workshop. looks, plays and sounds great with a beautiful resonance thanks to the swamp ash body. Delivery was also amazing....ordered on a Monday evening and delivered to the south of France by Thursday midday....excellent service all round, Many thanks.

    Oh My God! I's almost too beautiful to touch! The only body in the world with this look at this price! I've been looking for a long time...until now!
    Finest high glossy finishing, perfect measures for Fender and Squier Necks, good weight! Only thing is that the blue is a little lighter than shown on the article pictures, but for my taste even nicer! So i can't wait to get it ready...
    Apologies for my english...
