Just pulled the trigger on a used Squier VM Custom Tele - tobacco sunburst. Should get it on Friday. Unless I get it and absolutely hate it, the plan is to rip out the guts and mod it up. A few months ago I posted a thread about "Beefing Up a Telecaster." My plan was to take a Mexi tele and turn it into a dual humbucker/fat tele/Southern rock guitar. Well, that project didn't actually end up where I initially wanted it to go. I love that guitar, but it turned into something else. So, I saw this one online at a good price and snatched it up. Plus, I've always wanted a sunburst. First steps will be dropping a Lil '59 in the bridge and upgrading the pots, tone caps, and the switch. Beyond that, I'd like to eventually get a new pickguard cut to accept a standard humbucker, or see if Fralin or someone can put a standard humbucker into a Wide Range cover. Probably add a new bridge, or at least compensated brass saddles. And here I thought that learning how to solder and work on guitars was going to help me SAVE money. Ha ha! If I don't end up liking it, then you might see it up on Reverb next week.
