Paint-grade Swamp Ash Body for Tele

About This Item

While supplies last: When these bodies are sold out, they're gone!

Killer price on a paint-grade body!
These 4-piece swamp ash Tele bodies are a great choice for spraying a solid finish. They're shaped exactly like an original, but we've left the final sanding and finishing for you.

This type of body would usually be found under an opaque finish, but there's no reason you can't finish it in transparent lacquer or even add a veneer. They'll sound just as good as a carefully-matched 2-piece body.

Average weight: 4.25 pounds (1.9 kg)

Shaped like a true '52
The shape of the body and electronics cavities exactly match a 1952 original Telecaster®. The body is 1-3/4" thick with the correct 1/8" radius. The small router hump next to the neck pocket, and the 7/8" flat at the output jack, are quirks we retained for vintage accuracy.

Golden Age 52 Tele Details

Holes for mounting the bridge are drilled. Holes for string-thru-body are partially drilled, giving you the option of using a top-mounted bridge instead. Neck mounting holes are started in the traditional 4-screw placement, it's easy to finish them out with a hand drill. Our Replacement Neck for Tele Guitar is a perfect fit.

Ready for final shaping, sanding and finishing.

Swamp Ash body blank


Verified Buyer

Nice grain, very good lamination and matching of grains on faces of body. Even at full price this would be good value, sale price was a bonus! With modest finishing this will look fantastic!

As someone who usually only makes custom strats from scratch by hand, I'd been toying with the idea of trying a tele for sometime but didn't own one to template up off. Saw the paint grade s/ash body for tele @ thought perfect!!! Bought one @ a neck to go with it @ FRANKLY!!! I'm over the moon with both... The body is a lot nicer than I thought it would be @ the neck is a perfectly snug fit so now I can template these @ try a few unique tele's in unusual timbers...Also...swamp ash is very hard to find in N.Z.@ this body's certainly nice enough for a tinted clear finish which is a REAL BONUS for me. Knowing what's involved in making a body from scratch this is...EXCELLENT VALUE ALL ROUND!!! No doubt about it. BIG THANKS TO STEWMAC!! You've put ..THAT BIG SMILE...on my face once again. cheers!,ROD. N.Z.
