    The Guitars of Keith Richards: A Short History from Five Watt World

    Cool video. Forgive me if it was posted elsewhere. I definitely learned a few things. I do not think I knew the Can't Get No Satisfaction riff was played on a Firebird.

    NGD: Epiphone Firebird

    So, Firebirds have never been among my "always wanted one" guitars, like a black 70's strat with maple fretboard, Ric 330, or Gibson Les Paul Custom. At least, not until recently. I have a firebird pickup in the neck of a tele and it is amazing, so I have been thinking about how much I...

    Neck-through guitar and GC Warranty

    I have a neck-through guitar on layaway at Guitar Center, waiting for Pawn Clearance (stay tuned for a NGD soon). When I put the deposit down, they made the pitch for their warranty and how the manufacturer would not honor any warranty with it being used. Normally, I would not be too worried...

    Black Screws for Telecaster Neck Pickup Pickguard Mount?

    Anyone know of a source for these? I have some of the DiMarzio ones that say they are for strat or tele, but they have huge screwheads compared to standard ones. Thanks!

    4 Way with Out of Phase

    Anyone have a diagram for a 4 way switch config that is B, B+N in phase, B+N OoP, N? (Or B, B+N OoP, B+N in phase, N -- I don't care) Whenever you search for 4 way with out of phase the diags that come up are usually 4-way series wiring with a separate switch or P-P pot for OoP. Thanks!

    NND: New Neck Day

    Got my Squier Tele Deluxe neck from Stratosphere yesterday and attached to my Telecaster Custom II. Added some Gotoh SD-91 locking tuners I had bought for my SRV sig strat but then decided to keep the gold hardware. Other changes I had already made were a new black pickguard, new fillisters...

    Wire Question

    I have recently runout of modern insulated wire and was wondering were you folks usually get yours. I still have some pushback, cloth insulated. I usually use like with like. Additionally, the next wiring job is going to be a little tight so I think the thinner overall diameter of the modern...

    Body and neck matchup

    Was looking at putting a CV Tele Deluxe neck on a Squier VM Telecaster Custom II. I *looks* like the neck is rounded like a strat neck and the pocket on the body is squared like a standard tele. Other than the possibility of a slight gap at the corners, does this matchup look like it will work...

    Squier Serial Number Anomolies

    So, I have a couple of classic vibes, and all have the standard waterslide serial number on the back. I noticed several Squiers at Music Go Round that have what looks like a decal under one or more layers of clear coat. Basses, teles, and others. Pics from a CV Tele Deluxe at MGR vs one I...

    Do you use your phase switch?

    Do you use out-of-phase sounds if you have them installed in your tele? Am thinking of putting a phase switch in a HS tele build but trying to decide if it is worth it. Thanks for your input!

    Help with this funny humbucker I bought

    I have a Seymour Duncan 59 Neck pickup. Has a third, white wire though and I confirmed with Seymour Duncan that 1) it is a 59, but 2) that wire is not original. So, it looks like a coil shunt (hope I am using the right word). The full pickup reads 7.54 k normally and the white reads 3.73...

    New Pickguard Day!

    Yellow tortoise shell from Warmoth. Thought I would try the Prince vibe. (I am aware this is the wrong side ;) , but since the pickguard is translucent this is the best way to show off how it is going to look on the front.)

    Which tool for cutting a telecaster bridge?

    I hear of folks cutting them down from time to time and wondered what is usually used. Was guessing an angle grinder? I have one I want to cut down but was unsure what tool was best. I have an angle grinder and a Dremel Sawmax (which is surprisingly useful, if a little bulky and non-ergonomic)...

    Mini-switch through standard Control Plate Hole

    I am trying to install a mini-switch in the middle hole of a 3-hole telecaster control plate and wondered if anyone has any advice about washers, etc., to make this work. I am starting to think it would be better to just get a 2-hole plate and drill a smaller hole. If anyone has an experience...

    Favourite Saddles for a 6-saddle Bridge?

    What are you favourite saddles for a 6 saddle bridge? I am in the market for some for a partscaster tele and might replace the vintage saddles on my strat if I like them. Thanks!
