79: – 79 0407 – Adrian’s Telecaster (2007)

number79I built this guitar for my friend (and one of the best guitar players I’ve ever met) Adrian Lillis using a centre-joined swamp ash body, and a highly figured, flat sawn maple neck with similarly highly figured maple fret board. The guitar is fitted with Kinman Tele pickups.

After 79 instruments, the hazards of loose screws on the workbench should be a thing of the past- but not so! The “Bucket Blue” had to be resprayed to the back of the instrument and the soft maple fretboard proved to be entertaining to get the frets level. However, the end result proved to be most satisfactory.

As a demonstration just why I regard Adrian as one of the best guitar players I’ve ever met…  Raising the Roof
