    Vintage Weston Telecaster copy project, any help appreciated!

    My Cousin just picked up a Westone Telecaster copy project. We haven't had any luck identifying the model or year, but it looks pretty old. He only got the body & neck, no other parts. Sounds like an easy project, right? The problem is it doesn't seem to take a standard Tele bridge, we've tried...

    Eleca Trill - any of you Bargain Hunters get one?

    The eBay algorithm bots kept serving this slightly ungainly looking guitar up a few months ago. The price was pretty cheap ~$220 with a tweed-ish case. A Tele-style rhythm pickup and humbucker bridge and uncomplicated controls looked attractive. Set neck and nice to my eye shape. Not sure what's...

    NOGD Thomas Excelsior

    Here's a guitar that was going for a price I could not say no to. It's a Thomas Excelsior, seems to be unmodified and in decent shape, everything works, but needs a little tweak on the action. It's got an old set of flatwounds on it, I'll put some fresh strings on it and set up the action and...

    Mystery craigslist "Lawsuit" guitar, any idea what it is?

    My cousin saw an ad on CL yesterday and sent an E mail, didn’t hear back till late last night, so he arranged to pick it up today. $75 with the original case! Pancake body, Grover’s and a DiMarzio in the bridge. He thought from the picture that it was a sanded top and who knows what else, but...

    NOLS Day (New Old Lap Steel) - what is it?

    Another night of insomnia on eBay and I've ended up with a vintage Lap Steel project. The pickup is missing, but I have plenty of odd vintage pickups to try with it. It came with a nice vintage case, but no identification that I can see. No matches found yet on google, does anyone recognize the...

    Any idea what brand of vintage Humbucker this is?

    I've had this Humbucker since the early '80s and cannot remember what company made it. I've got a faint notion that it was from one of my Hagström guitars, but would appreciate any more information. It's a 4 wire + solid ground wire with white, green, yellow & red. I spent some time this...

    Thinline-style Partscaster on the workbench

    I've always loved the look of the Thinline Telecaster and have been gathering up some parts to make my own version. A nice looking Black Cherry Thinline-style body with a quilt Maple top popped up on that online auction site, so I bought it. It's not an exact clone of the Fender guitar...

    NGD Jazzmaster from guacamole to vintage white

    My 1962 Jazzmaster was the first "good guitar" I ever owned, bought it in 1976. Sadly I sold it a few years ago when going through a very rough financial patch. Even worse, the guy who sold me a sob story about having one when he was in college but had to sell it to pay off debts and would give...

    DeArmond with weak output, reads open?

    I know I've seen it explained somewhere, but could someone explain how a pickup can read open yet still have an output, albeit weak? My Harmony Rocket H53's single DeArmond Indox/Golden Tone never seemed to be as loud/hot as my other Rockets. Thinking it was maybe a bad pot, I pulled the...

    NOGD - Kay TrueTone Speed Demon project

    A year or so ago, I had the winning bid on the complete wiring harness and set of 3 Speed Bump pickups for a Kay Speed Demon guitar. The guitar deal that I'd bought them in anticipation of using them with fell through and the pickups don't easily fit any of my other guitars. It kind of...

    Tell me about Profile brand Telecaster copies

    I've got a Telecaster copy from one of my Brother's buddies for set-up. It's a Profile brand guitar and looks like it's been modded over the years. The pickups look like GFS, but I haven't popped the hood yet and inspected it. More once I get into it, but if anyone has anything to add on...

    Which Kahler tremolo does this project need?

    <sigh>, I saw an eBay project Hohner EvH-style body that was said to use a Kahler tremolo and I have a spare Kahler trem that I thought would work with it. It doesn't. :sad: Any idea which model Kahler this guitar body takes?

    Goldtop copy, 40 years later

    My first electric was a Mansfield Goldtop copy: circa 1974 I don't remember what happened to that guitar, the '70s intervened with my memory. :neutral: Anyhow, I've always had a corner of my heart that wanted one again, but it took quite a while to find one. Our local craigslist had one...

    a friend's Kay archtop to refurbish (pic heavy)

    A good friend of mine from out of town mentioned he had an old Kay archtop that he was given when he was a teenager. I asked him to bring it down on his next visit and he dropped it off a few days ago. It hasn't been played in quite some time, due to a wiring problem. I said I'd get her up...

    Green Greco hollowbody project

    I really must stop scanning craigslist. :oops: There was a Greco hollowbody project that I couldn't resist, as I have a lot of Teisco & Matsumoku parts that need to be put to use. Unfortunately, a previous owner carved humbucker-ish sized holes in it with a steak knife, by the looks of...

    Quick Question: what's this neck plate logo?

    Just a quick question on a neck plate that is going on my Gnashville Partscaster project. I've got a box full of miscellaneous neck plates and thought this one looked familiar, but for the life of me, I can't recall the name of this logo's company. Pic: Gnashville Partscaster getting...

    Alternative to neck mounting plate?

    I recently bought a vintage Kay guitar project, needing a few parts. I have the body, pickguard, switches & neck, but it didn't come with the neck plate. Since I moved to this smaller place, I don't have a workshop with a drill press anymore, so I'm trying to come up with a substitute for a...

    Is the Canadian Craigslist Down for Terms of Use Violation?

    As per usual this morning, I made a cup of coffee and opened the bookmark for my local craigslist, but instead of dozens of ads for black Squier Strats and the usual pawn shops and music stores trying to advertise for free, I got this: Is it down for any other Canucks? What am I going to do...

    NLGD: 3/4 scale Strat-ish Harmony

    New Little Guitar Day! After getting beat on a couple of tempting craigslist deals the last few weeks, I bit on a 3/4 scale Harmony Strat-style guitar. The original owner had it strung with .009-.042s and had it tuned up 3 tones to GCFBbDC. I put a set of .011-050 and have it in standard...
