I guess I'm more stubborn than most... The last thing in the world that I need is another Tele
I lost count of how many I already have, and continue to build them every day. I wonder if the problem is in the piezos or the preamp. I further wonder if there are replacement parts available, and if it's worth the hassle/expense. I'd take a bath on this one, as I would be compelled to disclose the problem, this is only the third day I've had it, and I rebuilt the entire thing (except the piezo portion). I gigged it last Thursday night, and liked everything else about it, plus tore up two fantastic guitars in order to have the neck, pickup, and switching configuration just how it needs to be. I installed my favorite AP maple neck, (that came in lightly flamed maple as a fluke), I got rid of the stock pickups, (which are ok.. but not what I prefer)- and installed a Fralin in the bridge, SD quarter pounder for strat in the middle, and a early 70's Gibson Mini bucker in the neck position. the switching goes
2) bridge & neck parallel
4) neck & middle parallel
Plus dial in the piezo, and a variable master hi pass filter.
Needless to say, it would be easier to fix the piezo than to try to get this thing back to stock and sell it for a loss... Plus the most important thing... I love the color
