    I am upset, should have been NGD, Update: situation resolved

    I also forgot to add that Allparts Necks come undrilled, so you can't really pin that on them.

    I'm sure it's too early for the "Grolsch Beer Squad" suggestions, but they should be up around the crack of noon......:roll:

    I am upset, should have been NGD, Update: situation resolved

    That is curious....I've worked with and handled hundreds of Allparts necks, and don't ever recall seeing one that was as you describe....Not doubting your findings, just seems odd.

    1952 tele serial 1531 neck shape?

    I'm not really sure I understand your Quest ?....but be aware that all those Early Guitars were hand shaped & sanded, and sizes were all over the Map. Nacho's Excellent Book only covers a very small sample of what was produced.

    Telecastered my Esquire: think I made a big mistake

    There is a reason some of us Love Esquires...and you've Discovered it...:wink:

    Is this a good price for this kind of work?

    Once again, if you had read that it includes a complete Set-up and Nut install, I will again state that it's not really that far out of line IMO...but that's just me.

    Compensated 3-barrel bridge offset

    I quite agree....To start with, this Forum's (and others) obsession with intonation being absolutely Perfect @ the 12th fret is nonsense....and always has been on a fretted Instrument....Take a 4 string Bass Player for example. Do you think they would rather have their fretted note...

    help, I've killed my tele's tone (new pickup problem)

    Changing phase on pickups to play well together in the combined position, is a little more involved to do it correctly, than just swapping 2 wires. Perhaps these will help some.

    Is this a good price for this kind of work?

    If you can perform a Pro Set-up....nut Install w/ slot heights, and address 42 sharp fret ends in under an Hour w/ 3 Coffee breaks...... I bow to your Awesomeness !!!!!.......:shock:
