    Accidental NGD: Squier Rolling Rock Tele

    So, I drop into my local music store for a couple of parts, and something green caught my eye.<p> <p> <p> I got a good deal on it, so I couldn't pass it up. From what I was able to find searching old threads, they were promotional items produced in 2002 for Rolling Rock, and provided...

    I'm finishing up a modified '52 style that I'm building for my daughter. I bought a prewired control plate, but the wiring does not seem to match the various schematics I've compared it to. Here's a close up of the switch terminals: It doesn't really resemble the schematic; Notice...
