This article describes the build I did in the spring of 2019 to assemble and customize a kit from BYO guitars. What I was going for with this kit is to create a vintage telecaster/broadcaster with a customized motif. No crap parts or other compromises. I didn't want to spend a huge amount of time building it so a kit was a great way to jumpstart the process. Still in all I spent about two months getting it all done and tuned up. I'm a big Leslie West fan so that is what inspired the custom pickguard and why I gave it the name:

Nikola Tesla was a man who thought outside of the box. One of his far reaching determinations was the fractionalization of electricity into it's electrostatic and magnetic components through the use of his magnifying transmitter. What we know as a Tesla Coil. Knowing Nikola Tesla is to know his competitors; Thomas Edison, C.P. Steinmetz and J.P. Morgan. Tesla was aligned with George Westinghouse in the battle of the currents versus Thomas Edison and financier J.P. Morgan. Steinmetz was employed by J. P. Morgan to understand the inventions of Nikola Tesla. Tesla's tale is a fascinating mix of business intrigue and scientific discovery that inspires people to this day.
