Building a Telecaster from NZ Timbers

This post shows how I built a guitar from New Zealand native timbers – a Totara body, a Rewarewa neck and a Kohekohe fretboard. The Totara body was cut out of an old fencepost, put in the ground some odd 60 years ago, and removed by us when needed to make space for a driveway. A nice token that it came from the family land.
