    Another MJT build: Sonic Blue Tele

    "Yeah, I'll put a low bid on this body. I'm sure I'll get outbid."

    And now I'm building another partscaster.

    Ash body. A little bit over 3lbs. Sorry about the messy laundry!

    Waiting on some Lollar Tele Specials. Hopefully, next month will put in the order for a Musikraft neck. All the other parts, minus the knobs, came from Mojo Tone.

    Since it was pre-drilled for the bridge, I used that as a guide for everything else and just eyeballed it. It took me a minute to commit and drill the holes!!

    All done and surrounded by mint. This thing came out so killer. Plays and sounds so great.

    That looks so good, congrats! I wouldn't have guessed that was sonic blue, but I'm bad with colours

    As far as I know it's been done many times.





    This was an MJT Build I did a while back:





    It was an MJT body with a Musikraft Brazilian neck. The thing that impressed me the most about the body was the very natural and subtle micro checking. I kinda had low expectations, lol, but in person it looked great. I tried to wait for the cleanest least relic' looking custom style I could find then it appeared. Looks like you've got a solid build there!

    Good God, that thing is beautiful.

    Yeah, I was pleased with the minimal amount of wear on my Tele as well. I'm not super into MJT's more over the top offerings.

    @thinsissy Yeah, SB is pretty difficult to photograph!
