Thinking of buying a foto flame top Japan Tele that was routed for a bridge humbucker but the routing job shows a little on the top even beyond the large humbucker bridge plate. Forget about putting the old single coil back in! Are there any extra large humbucker plates available to cover an overly generous routing job? The gap or notch only shows slightly. My guess is that Im pretty much out of luck. It's such a shame because it is a really nice playing guitar and otherwise very nice looking. How much do you think this should decrease the value?
