I recently finished up this build. It's a telemaster style using a Reverend Warhawk body shape as inspiration. Thread: http://www.tdpri.com/forum/tele-home-depot/430976-telemaster-reverend-style.html I've sorted out the neck, reworked the nut and set the intonation close. The problem I'm having is low volume on the high e string. It's a blade pickup and seems to be working correctly. Looking at the pic below I see a very low break angle over the saddle at the high e. Could this cause the problem I'm hearing? I've already shimmed the neck a bit to get the saddles up where they are. Don't want to shim it more, in fact, it shouldn't need a shim at all with this neck. The bridge is a top-loader, obviously, that I had in my parts box. I thought it would be easier and faster to use this type of bridge and, honestly, I was in a hurry to get the guitar put together. The string mounting holes are drilled rather high up on the back plate, which I think is part of the problem. So the question is how much of a pain is it to switch over to a string through bridge and will the pickup location stay the same? I don't mind re-drilling the mounting holes, but what other surprises might I be heading for? Thanks for any input ya'll might have.
