    Received this in a recent trade with fellow TGPer. I was not in the market for another tele but needed to unload the trade. This was built by that forum member.

    - Relic'd Neck "F" headstock decal was added. C-shaped. .852" (1st), .954" (12th)
    Neck is not All Parts as was previously noted.
    - body is a relic-ed "closet clean" MJT. It is fiesta red but appears to have an orange tint to that.
    - pickups are CS Nocaster in the bridge, custom wound (by another forum member) Sunset PAF in neck.
    - The wiring schematic is interesting: from the builder, "The wiring is from 920D and it’s a custom blend pot that mixes the bridge into the neck."

    I had the guitar setup just last month by Rod Miller of RM Guitars here in LV. He put a new nut on there. Awesome guitar, just not being used currently.

    $650 pp/shipped to lower 48

    I would consider trades but leaning heavily towards cash. Not a PRS guy, not into any modern-type stuff. I dig lawsuit LP/SG, am looking for an SG (cheaper standard or faded), similar roadworn teles or strats.

    EDIT: will be shipped with gig bag or i have a Fender tweed case I can ship for the right deal.

    Had a couple people with questions about the wiring. The middle position activates both pickups as normal, and the tone appears to work as normal as well on the middle position. I know nearly nothing about wiring, but there's definitely something going on in the middle position that gives it a little quacky/out of phase sound.

    Here's a couple pictures of the control cavity - maybe someone can make out what's going on.

    What's the weight on her? Can you explain the wiring blend a bit more? Is that on all 3 switches? Thanks.
