Fanned Tele

This guitar proves that building guitars can also be sustainable. The guitar has a body and neck made of wood that has already had a previous function. The Irokko body has been part of a staircase of a high school. This has been covered thousands of times over the course of 60 years. The wenge neck was made from what used to be a school door. This piece of wood has also had 60 years to dry. With a fingerboard from Poa Ferro and a top from Monkey pod, this guitar is the ultimate, what one would call, ‘wood-porn’. During the construction I wanted to make a light fanned fretboard. The high e-string is 628.65 mm, the low e is 648 mm. A nice mix of Fender and Gibson.
