Our T-Style Premier Series replacement bodies are constructed from high quality alder. These replacement bodies are a great option for seasoned builders looking for a higher grade body. Each body is finished with polyurethane sealant and gets a quality check before shipping. These T-Style bodies are vintage spec meaning you can use any vintage spec bridge on them. Please keep in mind that as a 3rd party body there may be up to a 2mm tolerance you must adhere to when using other 3rd party parts.
If you are interested in having a custom body made to your own exact needs, you can do so here.

While we cannot guarantee you will receive a body with an exact weight, if you message us after placing your order requesting a light or heavy body, we will do our best to select the closest match we can. Please keep in mind that this is a courtesy, and isn't going to be an exact weight match.
Our colors are not officially licensed. We select color names based on historical color names and what they most closely resemble. If you're trying to get a 100% color match that may not end up being the case with this body. Color variances may be offset depending on the screen you are viewing these images on. Please keep this in mind when placing your order.
While our body's specifications are outlined above, as a 3rd party body that is not licensed you must adhere to an industry standard variance of 1-2mm. Guitar manufacturers spent decades creating different specifications for guitars, and not all parts will be compatible due to vintage, modern, and import variances. When you receive your body we strongly recommend doing a "soft'' build without doing any drilling or any modifications to the body.
The body arrived VERY quickly, very well packaged and in over-all good shape.It seems to be a very well made body, certainly better than others I've used in a similar price range (or even a couple hundred more). Good weight, clean routs and everything I've dry fit so far has lined up well. Color is accurate to the photos on the website. Can't wait to finish this build.
The body was VERY dirty inside of it's packaging. I'm not sure what exactly was on it, but it was all over the back front and sides. I wiped it down with a damp micro-fiber cloth, used a (MusicNomad) cleaner followed by a polish. While it looks much better, there are still a few areas that can be seen at certain angles and feel slightly "satin" to the touch. Trying to decide now if I try to clean/buff it or progressively sand the whole thing to a satin finish.
This is my second Tele body that I’ve bought from AE and love them both. No fitting issues at all. Might be buying a 3rd!
