A Trio of Telecaster Builds

White Blonde Esquire

A re-creation of Fender’s white blonde of the late 1950s and early 1960s.

This was my attempt at a 1953 replica. It uses my White Blonde nitrocellulose lacquer.

Butterscotch Blonde Telecaster

A re-creation of Fender’s butterscotch blonde of the early 1950s. This uses the same blonde lacquer as above but with a tinted clear coat to give the butterscotch colour.

This one was aiming at a ’53!

Butterscotch Broadcaster

The third and my latest Telecaster to date uses my “Butterscotch” lacquer.

The body was made from some ash I had lying around the workshop.

  1. Hi, I’ve got an epiphone sg custom 400, finished in antique ivory. I need to do a repair on a broken neck.

    • Hi Geoff, my Vintage White will be pretty close, maybe with a light tint over the top. That’s what I’ve just done on a Gibson SG in Ivory; the colour blended really well and I only had to spray the area around the break.
