    thanks to Rob Barncaster for the clean hot A3 bridge pickup.
    Tone circuit is switchable btw traditional tele and 50's Les Paul (Fezz Parka).

    Found this at a garage sale the other day and may have to make a body for it. I'm guessing it is mid to late 70's and one of the earliest aftermarket tele necks that were made. Pre Warmoth. EVH's Frankenstein was a boogie body and neck IIRC.

    Looks like I am going to have to wind a pickup for the 2 string bass build so I dug out my old-school pickup winder that I put together a while back. Still has some bugs to work out but I like home made Leo Fender style of it.
