    IMG_4933.JPG IMG_4938.JPG IMG_4943.JPG IMG_4955.JPG Ive assembled ( built?) alot ot telecasters, strats too but i favor teles!! My best sounding ones, next to an occasional extra light swamp ash, are lite pine!! Yeah I heard all the stuff about how they wont hold screws ( they do), and pine is too soft, but i'll swear by pine anyday of the tele-week!! How bout you!! Show me yer PINECASTERS!

    I like the pine Tele look... doesn't get more honest and workmanlike than that...

    Seems like I think the same as you... after doing my first old pine Tele...
    Loove it soooo much, that I've started many pine projects...
    All fo them old pine, except the blue strat type, which is a very dense newer pine, a lot heavier... All are so resonant and lite, smooth sounding... 2015-07-29 19.00.26.jpg 2017-05-15 15.29.12.jpg 20161230_143149.jpg 2017-07-19 19.05.08.jpg DSC_2112.JPG 2017-09-12 19.05.07.jpg

    I don't know what it is about pine, but that P-90 edition especially is giving me GAS.

    That guitar really sounds incredible... that one will travel 400 km, but plans are for another that might stay with me...

    Ive built about 4 personal pinecaster,& another dozen for customers. Unless they weigh over 4.5 pounds, they all sound amazing & do sweeten up with age!!

    Actually pine is one of my favourite woods. From all the guitars I have the better sounding is a pine-core custom made guitar.

    Very underrated wood in my opinion. One of the best sounding IMHO.

    I’m building this one at the moment. It’s sugar pine. And I made every part you see in the picture... oh and the neck plate which isn’t in the picture;) F1EE4AE1-9311-4AB9-A20B-84E641550C64.jpeg

    Here's my old growth pine Esquire I built from lumber which was harvested in the late 40's. Nocaster bridge pup, All parts tmnf fat neck. Bakelite pickguard. Some special sauce wiring. She weighs in at 6 lbs.
    No switch to complicate things...just a no-load tone pot and volume.
