So a few years ago (maybe 10), I picked up a partscaster off the FleaBay ... semi-hollow body with an all rosewood neck (didn't figure I'd ever drop the coin on a full rosewood/Harrison CS tele ...). But, the kid who I bought it from had routed the body out for 2 buckers ... poorly (it appears he tried to use a hand drill). And then, having buggered the job, he slapped in a cheap Gibson bucker in the bridge, and jammed a Hot Rails into the ugly gash at the neck. So, I had seen a custom comic book covered guitar done by a luthier in CA. I looked him up, and made a deal to send him the body and an extra copy of West Coast Avengers #43 (from John Byrne's run on WCA, for any of you Marvel fans). He did his best to properly finish and shield the routs, and did a great collage job with the comic under vintage tinted nitro. When I got it back, I put in some underwound Reverend PAFs, 5 way Big Apple switching, and 2 push-pull pots for in/out phase and series/parallel. Lots of options ... and only 2-3 sounded good to my ears. Only played it on a couple of live gigs, and never in the studio. Then I bought a Les Paul and later a semi-hollow (Godin Flat Five), so I had the HH vibe covered in spades. The "Wacko"caster (fans/haters refer to the WCAs as the Wackos) sat in its case ... Last week I decided to give it a new life, but went the cheap & easy route (I shudder to add up what I have spent on this guitar over the years only to not play it): GFS Goldfoil single-coil alnico in the neck, GFS Surf 90 (Dynasonic clone) in the bridge, and one of their Kwickplug harnesses so I don't have to embarrass myself soldering. I had two goals: make it feel like a tele again with the humbucker-sized single coils, and chase a little of that Coodercaster mojo (really into Blake Mills and Joey Landreth lately). Best $100 I have ever spent on a guitar! The Surf 90 is all twang, the Goldfoil is warm and bluesy, and the middle (hum canceled because the neck is RW) is a great balance. Sounds great through my Fender, even better through my Vox rig. Plus, I dig the ugly duckling aesthetic. The Wackocaster rides again!
