It's coming... My entry for the $210 Tele Build Challenge was my take on a La Cabronita Especial. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to finish it by the deadline.

But, I am going to finish it... Look for "La Mentirita Especial" coming soon to a Tele forum near you!

THANK YOU! I was wondering how long it would take to put all this info together.

Now I don't have to!

I don't think it's possible if you're going to use TV Jones pickups, but with some GFS, it's definitely possible!

I figured it was the least I could do- why hog it all for myself?

Hi Bzablo, I'm doing a build with a couple of TV Jones' pickups, which I plan to wire up in the conventional tele manner. I noticed on your wiring diagram it shows a 250k tone pot. Forgive my ignorance but I was under the impression that 500k pots were best for humbuckers. I'm asking as I have a 250k no-load pot which I would like to use if it were suitable, what difference, if any, will it make?
thanks
Harry

Well, yes 500K pots are the best for humbuckers, but Fender is using the 250K pot, because they wire it for a Greasebucket, instead of the average tone knob. If you're not aware of what a Greasebucket does, I'll explain:

When you roll off the tone on a normal guitar, it brings the gain down with it, but the Greasebucket is designed to leave the gain for distortion purposes. Make sense? If not, enjoy this video where Mike Eldred of Fender CS explains it:



Now, you could wire it this way and then even have the added feature of the no-load at 10, where it basically bypasses it's self, but this wiring was also meant for a single pickup guitar, so I'm not sure exactly how you'd rig it. If you want the diagram for the two-pickup la cab especial, see here:



I hope this helps! Please do let me know if there is more I can do for you, or something I missed!

I'm actually using an Artec Filtertron that I got on eBay for $8.99:



I have no idea how it will sound. If I don't like it, I'll probably go for a GFS to replace it... their pickups seem really good for the price. The Gretsch surround I'm using with it actually did come from TV Jones! It's the only thing I could find that would fit this pickup.

By the way, I think you did a really great job on that list! I'm sure it would produce a great La Cabronita Especial copy. My design, on the other hand was specifically intended to come in under $210 for the challenge and to be "inspired by" La Cab.

Well, great job finding parts! Hope the pickup works out for you! And, I know about the lower-back deacl... I was bummed, but I guess it'll be ok for now. Hahaha

This is awesome....I have been thinking about putting one together for a while, and I think when I'm done refinishing/restoring my '65 Mustang (guitar, not car!) I'll start accumulating the parts.

In my head, I had imagined doing one with more old school tuners and bridge, but those locking Sperzels and American Standard bridge are growing on me....

I juse tried to find hardware identical to that of the Fender La Cab, I think old school hardware would 1) potentially look better, and 2) be your own original! Make sure you get what you want!

I know what you mean, bzablo, and I actually have a spare set of Kluson tuners. However, the more I read about the ease of use of the Sperzels, the more I'd like to try a set. I'm still on the fence about the bridge....whether to use the modern style American Standard, old school Strat hardtail, or a chopped Tele bridge plate. I think if I went with the more modern looking Sperzels, I'd also go with the AS bridge, but I've got time to think about it.

I say no matter what tuners, use the chopped plate! Those are quite amazing!

I MAY just splurge on a Glendale....we shall see. I planned on going that route with my BFG Esquire, but I cheaped out and went with a Fender plate and knockoff compensated saddles....

This WOULD look, feel, and sound great with a chopped Tele bridge, but again, I've got time to make up my mind....although now that I think about it, I COULD use the Klusons I have and save a little so I could splurge on the Glendale hardtail....

I don't like that decal anyway. It's the guitar equivalent of a tramp stamp.

That sounds like a GREAT idea to me!

Now that you mention it, I will have to agree. Why can't a good looking guitar be classy anymore? Hahaha.
