    Hi everyone,

    My brother and I are going to have a go at building our own tele's. My brother is going to make his standard but I would like to put in a set of the GFS Gretsch style pickups in mine with a bigsby vibrato.

    I plan on obtaining a template to work off and buy a pre fabricated neck. All I would like some advice on is how do I make sure that the pick ups and the vibrato unit match up and how do I know where to rout the holes for the humbucker size pickups. I also do not want to have the original volume and tone pots covered up with the chrome so how can I avoid this.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, and congrats on a great site.

    Kurt
