    would take some doing to get a sharper pic. Who's going to design lcd screen to fit a body? Program your own scheme.would be a winner!

    Whose body and neck did you use? Is the neck a one-piece or a separate fretboard?


    The no-casters are RWRP? Could you confirm the polarity and wind direction for me? Is it Neck North Counter-Clockwise / Bridge South Clockwise?


    I've got a reissue '62 neck and a reissue '64 bridge, but they're out of phase. The winding is reversed, but they're both North. I may have to re-magnetize the bridge to South.

    I'm building something similar right now.[​IMG][​IMG]

    This American Standard has had a number of changes since I posted it a while back. New neck pickup, new control plate, new selector switch, and new knobs. All adds up to being one of my best looking Teles. It kind of seems like a military vibe going on with it, which I like.

    That's some sweet tint on the MIM 50s.

    I lucked out on that one. Had to buy it sight unseen, online, because I really wanted that color. I got it fairly recently, after the Classic Series was officially discontinued...scored a good deal and, as a bonus, it weighs in at exactly 7 lbs. It plays beautifully...a really fine instrument.
