Telecaster kit build: The MountainCaster


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:
