Carved Top Tele® Guitar Replacement Bodies

Carved Top Telecaster

(Alder shown)
Carved Top Tele® Body

After many requests, we have designed a carved top version of the legendary Tele® shaped guitar body. Most carved top bodies require a laminate top but as with the Alder body above, we can use a standard sized body blank to carve the body from. Not only is this a great design option, but it is also more economical to produce and available at a lower price point than most carved top bodies.

Now, if you would like a fancy wood laminate top, we can, of course, accommodate your wood desires there as well! Also, check out the Hollow construction option for reduced weight and the F-Hole options for cool looks!
