    I was after a multi purpose guitar in this build. I took a les paul shape and tried to cross Fender and Gibson's best vibes into one guitar.

    Tele neck and scale length, with tele bridge and les paul control layout. The bridge pickup is a Seymour Duncan Hot for tele lead, and a Duncan P-rail in the neck. The Neck pickup can be run as p9 coil, humbucker in Series or Parallell, or a strat rail coil. The P-90 is hum cancelling with the tele pickup, and the strat coil and tele pickup will fake a strat reasonably well.

    ON TOP OF THAT, I had Charlie Mcvay put in one of his saddle benders on the B string. Smooth , silent operation that is tension adjustable and rock solid return to pitch and stays in tune.
