So at 65 years old I decide now would be a good time to learn new things. Stuff some of you folks can do in your sleep. So this is my first attempt at a refinish and electronic changes. BEFORE: AFTER: I used these GFS pickups. I'm a big fan of the Alnico Fatbody with oversized poles in the neck, and while I like the foil bridge by itself, I don't think it ended up being a good combination. The neck totally overpowers the bridge. So maybe a swap is already in order for the bridge. Qualifying this rating with I had no idea what I was doing every single step of the way and there were many do-overs, I'm giving myself an 8 out of 10. There are a few finish flaws but not too bad. It won't be everyone's cup of tea but I like it and I finally have my long coveted paisley Tele. Everybody has to start somewhere, just wish I would have started 40 years ago. Now I suffer from old cranky guy syndrome when things don't go right.
