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. :)

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. :)

The switch came today so I finished up under the hood there. All seems to work as it should. (Killswitch, Push/Pull, TBX tone pot, and Selector) Once Cooterfinger's pickguard arrives, I will be able to string it up and rock out. :D

New pickguard installed! Looks great. (Sounds great too.) Really happy with how it turned out. :)
