Re: Even more stupidity: Greco Super Sounds "Telemaster Custom" mashup

That's a pretty cool idea - or maybe a "little 59" except WRHB config.
I might go for the black cover for the full blackout experience, but can always switch back and forth ...

Re: Even more stupidity: Greco Super Sounds "Telemaster Custom" mashup

Updates: new tuners (not period correct, sue me), new knobs, bridge set up (chemically aged, I would normally despise this but it looked way too shiny), everything dialed in apart from the neck pickup. Comparison shot with my 83 Squier Tele Custom from the same factory as the Greco neck - the aesthe...

Re: I got to fuck around with a real fender marauder last night

Surprised you'd have an accurate Marauder made by Fender then specify dots instead of block markers. Impressed they had all the plates etc!

Re: Even more stupidity: Greco Super Sounds "Telemaster Custom" mashup

So a Telemaster needs a bridge and pickup. I got these off eBay - http://i.imgur.com/evRD4SL.jpg http://i.imgur.com/NdpNnKH.jpg Astonishingly high quality, $37 US delivered all up. I think the pickup is probably out of that ToneRider stable, all the materials are dead-on (fibreboard, waxed string et...

Even more stupidity: Greco Super Sounds "Telemaster Custom" mashup

Last year I bought too much stuff, during fairly crappy mental health leading up to quitting my job. Yesterday the (almost) last batch of stuff arrived. http://i.imgur.com/iq88HcY.jpg The Mustang VI still doesn't exist, but that apparently hasn't put me off another project combining the following in...

Re: PSA: Squier CV 60s Jag

I don’t mind a subtle mint, and I saw a 64 Strat once and it looked great.
Frosty looking good these days, the fretboard calmed down after two intense oil binges.
