    The mini-hummer is from AllParts - I heard a sound clip of this pickup on YouTube and it sounded terrific, so I gave it a try. Might have been a Gotoh or Razor Pickup, if I recall. Not sure. I mixed it with a Fender '62 Reissue bridge pickup and the combination works really well. There's two versions of this neck pickup. One with adjustable poles and one without. I found the body at the Philly Guitar Show and promised myself I'd build this thing. The neck ended-up being changed to a Pawn Shop rosewood neck, since it's chunkier and I didn't get along with the profile of the first neck I tried. The finished guitar is a tad heavy, but it sounds terrific. Probably the best sounding Tele I have, of 8. So, it was fun to do and returned a really fun-to-play Partscaster. Probably cost me a little less than $500 and I could have done it with a Mex-Standard, but, then it wouldn't have been Sea Foam Green! The color scheme, along with all chrome hardware, was inspired by this '57 Corvette.

    It is actually Shoreline Gold. Looks silver, though!

    Maybe this one shows the paint a little better. I had a baritone neck on it for a little while.

    The last one still needs to have the pickguard sanded to better profile and screwed in.

    And yes, no pots or switch--wired direct to jack and using a vol pedal and EQ box--for slide only.

    Parts just arrived today for my 12-string, including body.

    Just finished putting this one together. Weighing in at a svelte 6#, 13oz, it’s a Fender MIM single bound Thinline body, '69 RI style I think to which I added a micro tilt option. A Gotoh modern 6 saddle bridge. Pickups are Cavalier, a Fat Lion in the bridge and a Lioness in the neck. Wired with a Custom Guitars harness using a CRL 3 way Switch, CTS solid shaft vintage style 250k pots, Sprague .047 Orange Drop cap, a Stew-Mac volume treble bleed kit, and a Switchcraft Jack on an electro-socket jack mount. Has a MIM neck that I scraped the nasty thick, glossy and poorly applied fretboard finish and applied three light coats of Tru Oil, with a Tusq XL nut, sporting five std Fender non locking machines and a Hipshot BT-2 D-Tuner. Needs nothing more and is a joy to play.

    The hardware was already aged. The body also already was reliced but the laquer is really thin so it ages fast.
