    Hi all, only have one tele at the moment, I'll try and do better. My current is a classic vibe with a replacement neck.

    Others are a 68 strat, 65 country gentleman, early 80s hamers and deans. Some knockoffs that I use for mods.

    Right now my problem is a Lead II neck that won't give relief. I loosen it, but it won't set up. It may even have some back bow. Well, off to searching the old threads on this forum.

    Have a good rest of the weekend!

    Steve

    Welcome

    I’m sure there’s an answer for everything here

    That’s a shame about that lead II neck
    My first good guitar is a lead II , has to be one of my favorite feeling necks

    There’s a video on YouTube by stew Mac where Dan Erlewine works on the Mike Bloomfield telecaster
    It has a slight back bow so he takes the truss rod nut completely off lubes it with Vaseline and then retightens it and it takes the bow out
    If you want to see the video it’s titled “Mike Bloomfield’s telecaster” by stew Mac on YouTube
    He also puts some slightly heavier strings on

    LOL, I tried to play golf this AM, it was supposed to flurry in Somerset county, but it was sleety rain. The face of my clubs were covered in ice. I chipped a ball on the green and as it flew I could read the logo as the ball didn't even spin.

    Silly boy I am. Glad to be home after 9 and get crankin on that truss rod. Well not literally!

    Thanks so much for that. I put a tele classic vibe neck on the lead ii for now while I solve the truss issue.

    I couldn't wait to play it because I got zexcoil juicy and throaty buckers on it. Moved the output jack to the body, with the extra hole plus the original phase switch, I do their "silent split" on each where the default is HB voiced. And switced forward is 3+3 in parallel. This yields trad fender tones that are far more usable than a double coil split which I've never liked. View attachment 660125
