Hi everyone. I’ve been playing for many years but no very little about the actual mechanics of electric guitars (changing out pickups, adjusting truss rod, etc.) I would like to learn these basic skills. I want to either buy a budget guitar (around $750) to practice on or build one myself (to learn these skills). First question would be: what is the best path to go down- build myself or buy? What would be most advantageous? I am interested in building or buying a 3 pickup guitar. Either Nashville tele or Strat. I already have an American standard tele and love the bridge pickup. The middle position I don’t use because I don’t like the sound. The neck pup I like. On the Strat side, I find the bridge very harsh, but I like the neck and middle pup. I want something different than my tele, should I go Nashville Tele or Strat and why? Or if you can recommend another configuration or guitar build I am open to that too. I would just like 3 pups. Thanks a bunch!
