    Catswhisker Wide Range Humbuckers review.

    For context: I have not compared them to other wide range humbuckers apart from the ones they replaced. I recently bought a gorgeous Telecaster deluxe. It's a MIJ limited edition with a Stratocaster Tremolo, chunky "U" shaped neck and in gorgeous Lake Placid Blue. Telecaster deluxe...

    Bigsby B16 Break angle sollution?

    Hello Telecaster nuts. This is my first post on this forum and I hope a useful one. I decided to put an Bigsby B16 on my "69 thinline reissue just because I think it looks great (just being honest). Of course I had a lot of smaller and bigger issues to deal with to make it work. I ordered the...
