    Just wanted to share my transformed tele! It already had some mods when I bought it: a Twisted Tele Pickup at the neck, and a Seymour Duncan Antiquity at the bridge, and a classic series 50s neck. But I added:
    Flipped the control plate
    50s wiring
    Push pull pot for out of phase
    Push pull pot for in series
    A kill switch.

    Very fun project and now and incredibly versatile guitar!

    This is the diagram I made for myself, and some pics:

    I like the mods. It seems like a killer guitar.

    Nice Tele. Funny, my Baja came stock with all those tones, except for the kill switch.
