    Both of my Tele's have the control plates flipped.

    I kinda like the possibilities of doing volume swells on my reverse plate FSR. Just often wonder what's it like to do tone swells with the neck pickup.

    One flipped, two not, the flipped is the player.

    I flipped that on my tele last year for a few months. I put it back, though. I found that the switch being so far down was awkward. Maybe if you mainly hit the strings toward the bridge end it would work well; my home base is hitting the strings just past the neck PU. So, to each his or her own. I do have the angled switch Rutters plate though; seems more "ergonomic".

    It's great for guys like me that are not fans of switches!

    This is a shot of my.........

    Bigsby equipped Tele. In addition to the plate being flipped, I have a mini toggle switch between the volume and tone control that when flipped up it puts the pickups out of phase for some cool nasal honk........ I took this to the gig on Saturday night along with my bender Tele as a backup. I like to use it with a group who do more ballads as the Bigsby gives 'em a nice "steel guitar" like texture & vibrato.........JH in Va.
