  1. I have liked the Danelectro look and such, but I never really liked the idea of a wooden bridge. Randomly because I have a Tone Bender clone coming in I was watching Jimmy Page play with Jack White and David Evans and saw his black guitar. I thought, "I wonder what kind of Danelectro that is? It has a metal bridge it looks like." Checked ebay and saw the Danelectro DC-59 Modified and decided to pick one up since they are not too expensive. The one I am getting is the newer reissue from Korea. It has the dual concentric pots, metal nut, adjustable truss rod, gloss black finish. All the good stuff. Here are pictures from the listing. :)

  2. I am a sucker for a good Peavey. This one is a US Reactor. Pickups sound great and the neck is smooth and frets are great. It was a really nice find. Even came with a SKB case. :D

  3. They are very similar. I have two vintage competitions and one reissue.

     

     

     

    New competition family photo. I thought I should get some pictures of all three of my competitions together. (1968 US Competition Red, 1969 US Competition Blue, and my '69 Reissue Japanese Competition Ocean Turquoise Metallic.)

  4. I decided to suck it up. I went in the garage and got a piece of wood, cut it to the shape of the plate, shaved it down a little, painted it black, and now I have this.

    Kind of looks like a floating bridge now. I didn't have a full set of strings, so I used a couple scrap ones to check the height until I can go tomorrow to get some more strings. As you can see from the picture below, I should be able to get the action high enough for my liking. :)

  5. The transformation to more of a Telecaster Plus has started. It won't be the same of course, but it will be more similar.

     

    First I had to take the old stuff off.

    Next I drilled the control plate and added new electronics. I am using a 500k push pull for the volume pot so I can coil tap. I added a TBX tone pot and a kill switch.

    Getting closer! Cooter is going to make me a new black pickguard that just has the neck pickup. I also have a three way switch on the way. :)

  6. Kind of pissed. Got strings on and realized the saddles barely go high enough to get off the neck. It is like the bridge is sitting too low. I got them high enough, but they won't intonate right. Looks like I need to buy longer intonation screws. There goes a good set of strings...

  7. All wetsanded, polished, and assembled! Just need strings! I am very pleased with how it turned out. :) The color combo turned out great also!

  8. I was gassing on one of those Chinese humbucker telecasters, but just didn't want to pay the $500 for one. Stumbled across this one used at Guitar Center for under $100. Win!

    Pickups aren't bad. I might swap in a Red/Red Dually Lace pickup and a Blue in the neck like Greenwood. I like the orange metallic paint job and the black binding is pretty cool. :)
