A large box was dropped off for Matthew. Special Delivery, COD.
I wonder what could be in that box?
Why it is a Grizzly Heirloom Telecaster Kit! Let’s open it up and see what is inside.
A very nice piece of Alder with a quilted maple veneer top.
That should look really sharp once it is sanded down and stained. Anything else in there?
A rosewood neck no less.
This kit is part of a special project that Matthew is doing at school. His project is to build his own Telecaster guitar. This kit came with all of the pieces however it requires work to complete the instrument. The body and neck will need to be prepared, sanded and finished. The head of the instrument will need to be shaped. The instrument itself will have to be assembled and then a complete setup will have to be performed.
Matthew is going to put “Cleaver” on the headstock. A Cleaver Telecaster. I like the sound of that name. Pretty cool to build your own guitar at 14.
