    I haven't really been sniffing around tdpri too much lately, but seeing everyone's partscasters is always a treat.
    This is my latest, mjt body, musikraft neck, Texas specials, and regular cts pots and wiring. And of course, an OriginalFuzz strap.

    The body was a relic I got second (or third) hand. I sharpied in most of the cheap looking "dings" around the edges, and rubbed some black minwax into the bare wood. After stain, some super fine steel wool made that wooden edge totally rip-able against bare skin, no stress there.
    This thing is killer. Light, loud AF unplugged, and just a joy to play.

    Hello there,

    it was about time we have some properly colored Telecaster :). Here's the handbuilt one from the bosnian luthier MK Guitars:

    alder body with nitrocellulose finish
    maple neck, modern C shape, 10 radius, medium-to-jumbo frets, bone nut
    wilkinson w/ brass compensated saddles
    gotoh tuners
    other fender hardware except switchcraft jackplate
    custom pickups from mu buddy (neck pickup is SD quarter pounder clone, bridge pickup just classic tele pickups with less highs and slightly warmer and with more output).

    all images are before putting custom pickups, the present ones are some 80s MIJ tele pickups

    I swear, this is the last picture I take of this thing...the previous one didn't do the color(s) justice. I really dig this neck.

    Started with 250k for volume and tone. Swapped in a 500k for the volume and left the 250k tone and that seemed to brighten up both pickups just the right amount. Got up the next morning, picked up the guitar, and I swear it sounded just as warm as before I replaced the pot. So now I wonder if I actually replaced the 250k with another 250k and my ears heard what they wanted. It was pretty late at night by the time I was done. I don't have a multimeter handy to check right now.

    Right now the bridge pickup is raised pretty high (about a nickel coin between the bobbin and strings). So there's a lot of mids, so I think a 500k pot would be fine for it and make the neck humbucker a little brighter. With the 250k pot the neck pickup was a bit warm, but useable in most contexts.

    Sigh...I'm back. Decided to revise the $38 Special...again. Now it's sporting a modded Epiphone Alnico Classic Plus (coils wired in parallel instead of series), an Afinity "p90-style" middle, and the same '51 neck pickup. Also re-shimmed the neck, blocked the trem and did some work on the nut so it stays in tune.

    What are those white blade pickups? Bardens or little killers? I've been thinking about putting together another parts caster with the same sort of set up.

    These are the Barden modern T set. Really really recommend them.
