    The only "stock" one I have is the Suhr Classic T Pro seen here:
    [​IMG]

    I've got two Classic Vibe teles where the only thing stock left on/in them is the bridge, body, and neck. Both have all new internals, plates, jacks, switches, wiring, pickups, saddles, pickguards, etc. Threw a G-Bender in my CV Custom.

    And then I did a custom build through Suhr on a Classic T:
    • Alder body
    • plain maple top
    • f-hole
    • chambered
    • 3-tone sunburst w/ scraped binding and black back.
    • gotoh 2-post 510 trem w/ bent saddles
    • 3-way selector
    • push-pull split
    • Thornbucker pickups
    • tinted Even C Medium maple neck with satin finish and 9-12" standard roll
    • Rosewood fingerboard
    • stainless steel medium frets
    • matching 3-tone sunburst hybrid headstock
    • locking tuners

    Just completed this for a COVID furlough project. Guitar Mill double bound ash body, Musikraft fat flamed neck with SS frets, Forney bridge, Fralin Sunbucker and Alnico Rod P90. Very easy to play, sounds truly sweet.

    The tele mod I'm curious about is a reverse plate, master volume knob, center-detented pickup blender pot, and master tone circuit on the 3-way selector switch with different resistors selectable corresponding to values along the taper of a traditional tone pot

    My #1, unseated a PRS McCarty 594 Soapbar.
    Fralin strat neck pickup, split rail steel pole bridge. Fender elite Tele neck. Callaham bridge. Black Korina. The sustain created from the bridge pup and the callaham bridge is immense. Middle position quite spanky too with that strat neck pup.
