Even if you hard tail it makes no sense not to feed the strings from the bridge side and wrap under the tailpiece to increase the break angle

That’s the color scheme I’m going with for with the Duo-Sonic I’m building.

Though I’m going with a three ply pickguard so I don’t get in trouble with the neighborhood association.

I mailed it to Erik (username rodvonbon).

There should be a 40 page thread all about the process but I'm sure all the photos are nuked by now

This is what it looked like after a new pickguard and me filling in all the butchered routes it had

Never met him in person. We just put incredible trust in each other mailing guitars to work on

with all the re-issues, fender still can't do a trew bronco because of that crazy-ass bridge.

I must be confusing him with someone else. I remember a photo of you with some other member of the forum and you two had two Broncos
