Things still to do on the Telecaster



- Clear lacquer

- Solder pickups to control panel

- Fit strap buttons

- Set intonation

- Not point out the slightly cock-eyed string ferrules to EVERYONE.

Distressingly, it’s been four months since I posted this, and I’m still stuck on step 1.

Step one is now complete. And good lord is it shiny.

Off to therapy.

The lacquer fumes aren’t even that toxic. I just like wearing the mask.

Also I’m pretty sure I bought that shirt for work experience when I was 15 years old. I’m still waiting to grow into it.

I lacquered my telecaster body in a dress shirt.

I’m trying to enter a poetry competition, and the theme is ‘the day that changed my life’

There’s some sweet prize money on offer, but I hate writing about myself because I am the most boring person imaginable.

I am about 87% sure that I’ve not taken six selfies in my whole life.
