    Change my toploader bridge?

    Hey endzone....I'm checking out your gear list and it elicits a vintage "wow" from me. Any thoughts on the amp change?

    Change my toploader bridge?

    Whoa Ironhide! Thanks to you too. I forgot to say that I was a little squeamish about the bullet holes in the back of the Tele...especially if I'm the tech. Good call.

    Change my toploader bridge?

    Okay Everyone...you all rock. TD-SV thanks for your to-the-bone insight. I do not need anymore trauma at this stage of the game. Also I may have deserved a second guitar...but the third, fourth, and fifth guitars are under scrutiny. sjtalon...I will consider both pups and saddles...I'm also...

    Change my toploader bridge?

    Jwells393... I agree on all those factors as contributing to sustain but I have no doubt a bridge can also add to the brew. I'll do the search although it's probably a Ford vs. Chevy kinda deal. Thanks for the input.

    Change my toploader bridge?

    Hola Everyone...I love my 1992 MIM Tele but I'm wondering if there is anything to be gained by going to a three or six saddle through-the-body bridge? I've read about string tension differences re. bending but I'm wondering if there's a possible increase in sustain by going through the body...

    History of my 1992-93 MIM Telecaster

    Yo Tom B...., Yup my '92 is a toploader too. I don't know if I would change my bridge even though the string setup is a bit squirrely. I think I just have to get used to it. My neck pickup really reminds me of my Strat in the neck/middle position with more bite. I have to confess my Strat has...

    History of my 1992-93 MIM Telecaster

    Hi everyone. Thanks for all the responses. This Tele is completely stock except for a strap button that was replaced. I may never know the origin of all the parts but I kind of agree that they may be leftover American parts (maybe not from the floor of the USA shop though). Sorry for the slow...

    History of my 1992-93 MIM Telecaster

    Hi Folks. This is my second posting with this question and I know there's some Telemeisters out there that can answer it. I recently purchased a MIM Telecaster, serial no. MN 2116814, which puts it in the 1992-93 era. It is my understanding that this was the first year for MIM Tele's. Question...

    Hola y Ya eh tey !

    Hi everyone, Starcruiser here. I joined about a week ago but have been visiting/lurking for several months. Just bought a 1992 MIM Tele and am loving it. I have been playing guitar since I was twelve, I'm 56 now and a somewhat better player than I was at twelve. I have played professionally...

    My new acquired 1992-93 MIM Tele

    So here it is. I bought it from one of my son's friends who has become a DanElectro addict. He bought it on Ebay and said it came from somewhere in Texas. Roadwear on the lower bout is authentic but the guy I bought it from did a fine grit sanding job on it to give it the satin finish. He...
