Man, where can i get a hairy pedal like that?!?
#2083 finally done after a year. :BEER
pbradt, that pedal has a lotta attitude. my wife's nickname for her is "the sass factory"
phoenix, that is beautiful!!! did you build it? what's it got in it for electronics?
i'm thinking of changing my 3-way to a 4-way for esquire switching(tone pot bypass)
what's the weight?
Don't have any pics of my current CIJ Blackguard, maybe about time I took some.
Here's my '54 Esquire. It's been around the block but I love it.
GVCG '53 Blackguard.
Here is my Dec. '52 with matching numbered "The Blackguard" book, and another shot with my '54 Tweed Pro. 7lbs, 6.1k original flatpole bridge pickup. She's in for a body restoration right now. I'll post new pics in the future of the fully restored guitar....
Plaintop, that is just magnificent, I like the book too. I got mine about a month ago.
Here's my homebrew creation
Here's mine. A homebrew project, Lightweight ash body made in Pedro58's garage, Allparts boat neck (freakin' huge!!! had to take a little off) with 9.5" radius, Duncan antiquity broadcaster bridge and an old Gibson mini-hum in the neck. As much as I love old teles, just can't get around too well on that 7.25" radius, so I had to build one. Unfortunately, not my best paintjob, may have to redo it later on.
Fender A, Std. with PigTail vintage bridge with brass compensating balls, 4-ways switching with treble bleed and Fralin P-92/Blues Specials.
Is that an American Series Tele with a humbucker added to the neck? If so, how do you like the vintage bridge with it and how does it change the tone?
Here is mine
The tone enhancement was astonishing! I don't what individual component did what, but the tonal improvement was amazing. 4-way switching is the only way to go with single coil Tele's IMHO. The Fralin P-92 is an amazing pickup as is the Blues Special, and I'll definately be putting this PigTail bridge on any future Am Std. Tele's that I buy. I had no idea what I was doing when I did this conversion....I just got very lucky! Oh yeah, the P-92 can be best described as a noiseless P-90.
Here is another shot of mine with a '50 Broadcaster, and a '56 Esquire that my buddy owns. Oh, the tone in this group is so diverse, each is an amazing instrument.
USA Custom 3lb Swamp Ash body, with a light Mark Jenny relic finish.......Fender MIM 50's neck......Fralin Blues Specials. Feels like coming home when I pick it up.
Nah, Leo buit it, but it had 60's tuners, neck bolts, jackplate, pots and cap that I had to find. wouldnt you know it, I got the whole thing back to pure 1952 and the cap went. RS returned the color of the body back to something more believable than red auto paint. steve
