Anyone do a custom tele build with 2 Lollar Charle C. pickups?

    I've really been digging the clips of the Lollar CC neck pickup and wonder if anyone has done a cutom build with the CC in the neck and the bridge? I think it would sound fantastic. If you have done it, did you have to use a different bridge because of the pickup route? Any pics, clips info would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    A few guys make a CC that fits in a Tele bridge but if you want 2 full on CC pickups you'd have to go custom.

    I've not seen one before but I'm sure it's already been done...

    I dont know the answer but If you need a bridge I recommend a hipshot. Great product.

    You might need to custom fit the guard as well.

    I also recommend a p90 bridge and CC in the neck...that might be killer.

    Jason Lollar makes this

    http://www.lollarguitars.com/mm5/me...e=263&Category_Code=charlie-christian-pickups

    and he also has this on youtube

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuwQtM0Y9IM This is a tutorial on how to put a CC pup in the neck of a standard tele.

    Problem solved! I did the same thing a little while ago. The routing is very minimal and it demonstrates a pretty safe way of doing it in that video. The pickguard was the only thing I was nervous about. Find a tele you enjoy playing and mount em in it.
