To start this is purely an excuse to post pictures. But, this September marks 10 years with my project, mutt partscaster and 5 years with my AV64 tele. These are both smile every time you pick them up guitars for me. The AV64 is stock except for a brass saddle. I put a small gouge in one of the grooves in the threaded saddle and used brass for a place holder. The other saddle is fixed, just haven't put it back on. I also have no clue if the brass effects the sound. I just know it sounds good regardless and has such a great neck. The partscaster started my wannabe luthier journey and it has turned out to be a great guitar. I learned set ups, soldering, plugging neck holes and re-drilling them, installing a bigsby, removing a bigsby, etc with this one but I think its finally set as an esquire. Again, purely an excuse to post pics so here we go. Thanks!
