    So I have a neck cds style three bolt neck maple . Next week I'm ordering my ash telecaster custom body that will be fitted for a three bolt strat neck .

    Gonna have fender wide range pickup in the neck (wouldn't be the same with out one)
    I'm thinking broadcaster bridge pickup
    Ether a natural finish or Olympic white finish(unsure)

    Three barrel brass saddles On a ashtray Bridge . I guess I fell in love with the 72 custom I played but it is now long sold lol IMG_0659.JPG IMG_0660.JPG IMG_0661.JPG IMG_0666.JPG IMG_0666.JPG

    Cool man, can't wait to see it. I'd go white myself, Olympic white with tort shell is one of my favorite color combos.

    That never stopped me.

    And never stopped my wife from taking the frying pan to my head.
