The first Telecasters had bodies made of pine, and apparently they sound pretty awesome.

Neal Moser did a pine tele about a year ago, if I remember correctly it's pretty good to work with.

It's very crumbly and got a lot of air in it, it comes out slightly honky, lol, a tele's the ideal guitar for pine haha.

Got questions about anything I've said, done or do? How about pickups, tech, music production or just anything! Check here and ask away!

European (yellow) pine is apparently much more dense than the North American varieties, so it should work out very nicely.

You're from Norwich? My grandparents used to live near Cromer.

I'm not sure I'd recommend pine for the neck, but it'll be dandy as a body.

im very near there and i have a thaxters in my town and i went there today looking for some mahogany or maple but they dont stock any and they have loads of pine i didn't get any because i though i would be able to get some maple or mahogany but its too expensive around here so i'll pop in tomorrow and get some. i won't start my build till monday or tuesday.

Pine wouldn't stay rigid enough without being super thick, even with a truss rod. It wouldn't feel right either. Would kill sustain too.

Huf made a sigle cut guitar (ala LP) with pine years ago, he said "was very resonant" pine>low quality basswood (bad cuts on deep low end guitars)

Reinforce the neck with two carbonfibre rods; no more difficult than routing out the truss canal. Or maybe a three-ply pine/something-else neck.

carbon fibre rods would be a bad idea IMHO. If anything does happen to the neck, you can't adjust them.
But as a 3 piece.... that might actually work.
Still I think a neck made of pine would feel awkward.

I like Pinein fact i found this article from a pro builder about pine bodies and is pretty interesting.


I chose pine because it's one of the best tone woods in the world. It has the best resonance and the best vibration from the string. Pine is a very close relative to spruce and cedar, which have been used on acoustic musical instruments for thousands of years. This guitar became a point of controversy. It was a shock to people -- they assumed that pine was a junk wood since all the fancy guitars are made of flamed maple, quilted maple, spalted maple, and other exotic hardwoods, most of which do not reproduce the vibration of the string very well because they're hard and heavy.

I might make a guitar out of pine too. I have always wanted to build a guitar, but I was too much of a chicken shit to do it because I didn't want to ruin a nice piece Koa or Maple.

and i got all my wood for £3.30 which is like $5 so i might get some more to make a neck and put a piece of mahogany, walnut or maple in it to keep it strong

Man, plain maple neck blanks are cheap. You can get one from StewMac for £12...granted, shipping would cost like £20, but surely there is a reasonable source for maple neck blanks on the island...

You should call your previous lovers and get them checked for it too...

Frozen or fresh?

... take your pick.
