A rare neck through dual humbucker Telecaster in for a fret level, though not for fret buzzes. These wide, flat jumbo frets were causing intonation issues for the player. Leveling out the flat frets and recrowning them helped improve intonation up and down the neck.

A custom neck through Tele with dual humbuckers in for a fret dress. Most fret levels that come through the shop are done to correct buzzing issues. This player has a good ear and the flat spots in the jumbo frets were causing intonation issues for him. With a wider fret, the fretted note's contact point gets pushed more towards the bridge as the fret looses it's crown when compared to narrow fret wire. Leveling out the divots and recrowning restores the string's contact point to the center of the fret slot to provide improved intonation.
Neck recarve :: 2014 JW Van Tele
I've carved another neck for this player and he knows what he likes. This neck was much too thick for him (~0.960") so it was carved down to his spec's and refinished with tung oil for a satin feel.
Custom reclaimed pine Tele Esquire [7.3 lbs] :: new neck & assembly
This body is made from an old pine board from a barn with a bunch of nails, imperfections and all. It arrived at the shop in parts with a new Mighty Mite neck. The body neck screw holes didn't line up with the neck plate, so I needed to plug three of the four holes and re-drill them. After the body mounting holes were corrected, the the new neck's heel had it's mounting holes drilled. The bridge was located and mounted and wired up with a new Lollar Special T bridge pickup. I love the vibe of this reclaimed body.
