I consider myself a hobbyist builder and amateur luthier. I was born and raised in Tennessee and i try to put as much of that as i can in to my builds by using locally sourced woods. I build for myself first. This project will be a scratch built custom shaped neck-through guitar. I chose to go with a Tele inspired shape but put my spin on it. I never really liked the Tele shape so this would be my chance to put my personal spin to a classic design.
