Allparts Rosewood Pre-Orders

ALLPARTSI know what you are thinking – did you not just get a load in? Yes, yes I did. But Allparts are planning to place another order in the next week or so and are taking orders now. Delivery time is tba…(but expect 4-6 weeks from ordering, assuming stock is in the USA).

So if you want something I don’t have in stock, like a wide nut neck or bass neck or finished neck, get in touch and I’ll get you a price.

Check here for Allparts’ full line of rosewood necks.

Additions to Clearance Corner

A couple of Telecaster bodies have been added to Clearance Corner.

First up a two piece alder Hosco body. This has some minor tool marks at the jack hole that have been filled.

Second, a one piece mahogany body. This one has taken a knock at the rear edge of the upper bout. It has been steamed but there is still a minor flat spot on the edge and crumpling on the back – see the detailed pictures on the product page. Reduced by £30 to £95

Bye bye 2017!

Well it has been another interesting year and I hope 2018 brings more of the same!

Many thanks to all my customers and I look forward to continuing to enable your tinkering addictions in 2018.

I am taking tomorrow off (he says naively) and things will be back to normal on Tuesday.

Have a safe night, and I will see you on the other side!

Possible Courier Delays Over “Black Friday” Sales Period

It seems to happen every year – the courier firms do not add staff over this time and inevitably delays occur.

Yesterday a shipment I was expecting delivered by UPS was delivered at 8pm and UPS did not collect anything from my local Access Point.

On the first point – kudos to the driver for making the delivery instead of returning to the depot at the end of his scheduled shift (I believe UPS delivers to residential addresses up to 7pm)

On the second point, all the customers who dropped parcels at that shop over the weekend will experience at least one day delay in their shipments arriving at their destination. This morning the shop looked like a warehouse! (I suspect a great many local customers who booked collection will also have been let down)

Hopefully yesterday was an anomaly and UPS will be back up to speed.

Left Handed Gotoh Tuners In Stock

Due to a monumental cock-up by my supplier I have left handed versions of Gotoh Kluson style vintage tuners in stock. Aged, non-aged and magnum lock. My supplier is exchanging them for right handed versions (it was a large order) but until that is sorted out they are for sale.

(Yes, I mirrored the right handed pictures!)

Hosco 60s Style Telecaster Bodies

Newly arrived on the shipment last week are a batch of the new 60s style unfinished Telecaster bodies from Hosco. Hosco call it a “62″ body and it differs from their standard model in a number of ways.

Vintage appointments include cutout for truss rod adjustment between the neck pickup and heel, open wiring channel from neck pickup to control rout and router hump on the treble side of the neck pocket. Marker holes for the bridge are also new. Interestingly Hosco’s push-fit jack cup is not compatible (not a tight fit), and would need a standard Tele cup claw to hold it in place by the jack.

I will probably be sending some of these out for finishing, but until then all are available for sale with links to pictures of each body and weights on this page.
