    Congrats on your new Hot Rod! It's a fantastic guitar -- just a beast.

    Regarding Q1, IMHO, the Hot Rod is a guitar that's framed as a "player" anyway so the mod was the result of another player's opinion about usability etc. -- a utilitarian view of guitar as tool, not museum piece. Personally I don't love the depth of my HR's stock output jack because some of my angled cables don't quite reach all the way in (though Fulltone angled plugs do, just barely) so it's the kind of thing I might have done myself if I couldn't tweak the existing one to my liking. So I would say, if you like yours as much as I like mine, I'd leave it as-is and just play the sh*t out of it.

    Hi All,

    I purchased a used '07 Hot Rod '52 a few months ago. On a whim, I decided to swap in typical single coil pickups. I also wanted to clean it up a bit under the hood as the former owner must've been a smoker...

    Anyways, I noticed that my neck doesn't appear to have a 'Hot Rod' stamp...should I be concerned?

    I don't know what year it is (I don't feel like taking off the neck), but it plays and feels like a dream. No real exciting story, just was looking for a Tele, and I had eyed this one at GC online for a few weeks. I told myself on a friday that if it was still available on Monday, I would drive into Boston and try it out. Needless to say, it was, and I walked out the proud owner of a guitar I have dreamed about since I was a kid.
