The Telecaster style guitar is probably more popular now than it has ever been and with good reason. It is an honest to goodness American classic.

These days everyone and their brother is making something that looks like this timeless slab body. Some of them are good and others… maybe not so much.

Matt & Chris know for a fact that we can teach you to build an excellent Tele style guitar in a week. Then we thought that we could use EXACTLY the same woods and hardware that the boutique guitar builders use. Hell, we can use BETTER hardware & materials and y’all can get in on the action of building your own.

Given all of our contacts in this industry, it was pretty much a no brainer to offer a comprehensive guitar building experience that cannot get anyplace else.

Now, Check This Out...

All components, parts and materials are included.

Start With Excellence the very first day With Steve McElhenny at Maximum Guitar Works. Steve offers OEM Factory Services to companies you have, no doubt, heard of, meaning that your guitar will be exactly like some of the guitars built by the big-name boutique builders. Of course, you get to choose your own body & neck woods.

You also get vintage style pickups from OEM Manufacturer Dylan McKerchie from Dylan Talks Tone.

Finally, you will finish off the build with a Complete Telecaster Hardware package from Callaham Guitars. THE recognized leader in vintage aftermarket guitar parts. We used Callahamfor the Strat build and decided this is the only way to go for our heirloom quality Telecaster workshop.
