This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Howdy, all
You don't realise how much trouble this guitar has put me through!
First of all, I want to give a HUGE thanks to Wes_H for helping me out with UV Maps. Without him, this probably wouldn't be going up on the site :P

Secondly, you MUST have Atavera's Custom Instrument Hack for this guitar to work.

Now, the object itself. I've always liked Fender guitars, and own a Telecaster myself. I looked on the 'net for any Telecasters for my Sims and found none, so I made this one :D

Hope you all enjoy this as much as I do!

Polys are a litte high, I know - but this was the smallest I could make them!

Additional Credits:
Wes_H for help with the UV Mapping.
Atavera for the great tutorial on custom instrument creation.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

AHHH! I own a tele baja (mex I know, but it's one of the best mex i've ever heard or play! and American are way too expensive in France).
But I own a tele-sonic US which has exactly the same shape than a regular tele, any chance you make a recolor? I'd love to do it by myself but last time I tried to recolor an acoustic guitar for my sims it looked... frightening! lol

Anyway THAAANKS a lot for this!

I've tried making a few recolours, but it just isn't happening for me! I have no idea why, but when I choose the design tool in Buy Mode, it says that the object is not designable...

If anyone knows why this is and/or how it can be resolved, PM me

Hanging upside down to sleep does not make you cool or alternative - I know, because I've tried it...

Thanks for answer =]
It's okay, having a tele is actually great! I mean, this is my favorite guitar ever, and my sims couldn't have it... Thanks to you, now my sims can play a telecaster! And the telesonic is so not-popular that I doubt to find it anywhere someday lol =]

Thanks a lot, I hope you will make more instrument because you're good!

can you do a squier strat please?
I got one at home & I think it a little bit more elagent guitar, less wide at the bottom
& if you will do it, can you make it with recolour for black(what I got), blue(what I want).
And Allso do the finger borad In many colour to choose without a connection to the guitars colour.

PS: do a SQUIER STRAT not squier bulletstrat
