Partocaster Tele Custom Build

PCJ was asked to design and build a Partocaster Tele…Something a little different.

Having found a Peavey® body and Fender® Telecaster style neck we began looking at the electrics and opted for a Bill Lawrence L500 pickup in the bridge.

The wiring was straight forward with volume and tone controls but with a push / pull added to the tone to split the humbucker.

We couldn’t decide on a single coil neck pickup but found an interesting alternative by leaving it out. The swimming pool route under the pickguard created a chamber and the vacant neck pickup hole acted as a sound hole. This created an almost semi acoustic sound to the instrument.
