So I was given a Squier Tele in pieces by Shadowofseattle when I was a student of his (yeah I'm a wee babby) to practice soldering and guitar construction in general. I'm still garbage at soldering, but now i decided to mod it a little bit more.
Before pic:


I put a black bridge on it, a GFS Lil Puncher 12K Tele bridge pickup, and a black-white-black Esquire style pickguard on it. I used Kwikplug because, like I said, my solder joints are giant blobs of bullshit. I got everything installed and working today, but didn't take any pics bc I'm an idiot. I'll post them tomorrow.

It's the 3rd today and there aren't any photos as was promised. We gonna make Shad take this guitar back, acording to the shortscale legislation and "do it, you won't" policy

LOL I've been forgetting to pick it up from my practice space, I figured I could get away with it, didn't think anyone noticed yet. Been traveling a bit for a new job, and I think of the connections to the jack broke since I still don't have a control plate. Excuses, excuses I know Wink

Yeah when I was putting it together the first time I flipped the control plate bc I didn't like that the switch was that close to the pickups. It seemed to get in my way. Plus I think it looks better that way

Buttons courtesy of several different artists from a convention in Tampa, and missing control plate courtesy of me not having ordered one yet.

Thanks, it's my first attempt at any sort of mod so it's just real basic stuff, but I'm just getting my feet wet for now
