    Every guitar Fender makes is more than 1 piece unless it's high end custom shop stuff......

    There's a difference between gluing together boards of solid wood vs a laminated product with 1/16" thick sandwiched pieces of board....

    Very wise. I wonder if you could also persuade one of your fellow countrymen to adopt the same policy?

    I challenge you to find me a Custom Shop guitar with a one piece body. I'm not saying they don't exist (maybe special orders that specify this feature?) but the Time Machine range routinely use two or three piece bodies even on guitars with a transparent finish. You need to go to Japan for one piece bodies, & even then they are only on the top of the range models. I have a Tokai Tele with a one piece sen body & it's very pretty but it's no better than it's sister Tokai Tele with a centre joined two piece body.

    What is it called when you custom order something from a Master Builder? That's what I meant....the one where it's like a 2-3 year waiting period.....

    Just out of curiosity I called the Milton Keynes number on that ad to see if it is still Yamaha. It just asked me to enter my PIN.

    Oh yes I'm sure they will make you a guitar with a one piece body if it's a one-off custom order like that. For a price....

    But I would be very very surprised to find such a thing on any production Fender. They may exist, but they will be very rare.

    That's the old Kemble factory. A piano company which became part of Yamaha, they did build some guitars there notably MSG (Image) guitars, if you ever come across a made in UK Yamaha guitar do let me know. I have never seen one nor a picture of one. If you google Kemble Milton Keynes you can find some info.

    I'll be sure to look for one. Yamaha Music Europe still occupy the Kemble building, almost next door to Red Bull F1 racing.
