Comments about Mighty Mite MM2705 Telecaster Replacement Body:

I bought this body because I wanted to build a sea foam green telecaster. First impressions were amazing! However within five minutes I noticed a few chips and a somewhat hazy finish. When I started to put parts on, they didn't all fit. The bridge wouldn't line up with the crooked string holes and pickup routing. I made it work but the guitar is barely intonated. The neck pocket is to wide for a fender neck so there is a gap and the screw holes didn't line up with a Warmoth neck. to anyone else the guitar looks perfect, but to the people who build these guitars, aka me, they'll notice all the flaws. Don't expect much with this body.

Do your research first

Comments about Mighty Mite MM2705 Telecaster Replacement Body:

Overall if you are on a tight budget it is good but if you can spend a little more then search for a dealer on ebay to give you a body that has all the demensions you need
Bought this body with mighty mite bridge and you think it would fit...nope! I had to order 3 bridges until I found one that would fit(stew mac regular bridge with the grooved saddles..not the ungrooved brass saddle version) Customer service was non existant. Finally got through and they never called me back. Musicians Friend were no help either....MF get to know your products!!!!! Routing not very accurate.
It's not a bad body but I would help to give specifics on measurements and what types of bridges would fit. Believe it or not there are mant different bridges with very dofferent measurements and fars string spacing(obvious) and the length of the plate pickup hole matching with the routing. Routing was not very accurate.
There necks are a better value. KNowing all of this I would have spent the extra money and bought a nitro body from one of the reputable ebay dealers. They at least know the exact measurements. This is the fault of Mighty Mite but also Musicians Friend.

Actually pretty good

By JOHN BERGER

from Los Angeles, California

Comments about Mighty Mite MM2705 Telecaster Replacement Body:

This was the second body I received. The first one was returned because it had a significant finish drip near the the jack and the string through ferrel holes were out of line. The seafoam green looked more like sonic blue to both me & the guy at Guitar Center when I took it in for return & try my luck ordering another one. The transaction went smoothly at Guitar Center and the replacement body I received this time is pretty flawless especially if you like your seafoam green to look like sonic blue. There are no finish drips and the ferrel holes are all lined up. Solid. It weighs just under 5 lbs @ 4 lbs,14.5 oz The neck pocket could use a slight touch of sanding on the bottom. Both the first body & this one had this issue with the pocket - like the cutting bit needed sharpening . Nothing significant though. The neck pocket does fit the Fender neck nice & firm. It appears to be a 2 piece body as the seam runs right down the middle of the neck pocket on this one. All in all quite satisfied. I just wish I had received this one first. And . . . I am going to cover over the sonic blue with a dark version of seafoam green.

Fantastic body

By Stratoverb

Comments about Mighty Mite MM2705 Telecaster Replacement Body:

At this price you can't go wrong. Quality is first rate and you'de be hard pressed to apply a finish this good.
I built a partscaster but didn't want to finish the body. I bought the mighty might in natural because I thought if it looked like mostly like the one in photo that would be fine. Mine came to me and was absolutely beautiful. The wood grain was pefect, the finish - perfect. The string and neck bolt holes all seemed up to snuff and I ended up having a fantastic looking tele. It's not the lightest weight peice of wood out there but for a single peice swamp ash body that's kinda par for the course.

Anyway you can't go wrong with one of these - especially for the price. Think of doing a mary kay (white with gold hardware) for next one and will definately use a MM body.

Really nice body

By Stratoverb

from Hudson Valley NY

Comments about Mighty Mite MM2705 Telecaster Replacement Body:

I decided to build a parts-caster and wanted to do a natural blonde w/black pick guard classic looking tele. I took a chance on the MM body and I have to say the finish and wood are beautiful. For the price you really can't beat these. It's not super light but it's just a gorgeous piece of wood and the finish is flawless. I'm guessing it's a poly finish but I'm not sure. It could by lacquer because I put a couple of tiny cracks in the finish when I installed the string ferrules(whoops).The neck I had fit perfect in the pocket and all the fender hardware lines up with the routing and holes. The only downside is that the American Standard pick guard doesn't line up "exactly" so I've ordered a Mighty Mite guard and am hoping that fits better. Not a biggie though and a little trim work would make the standard fit. Bottom line is that if you want to build your own guitar but don't want to do the finish/paint work you can't beat these in terms of quality and price.
