    Here’s some before and after humbucker pics. Note the humbucker was originally in there normally and it’s back to that again !

    It must. Both are designated by the EPA as a toxic waste hazard so there will be very specific guidelines to follow.

    I find it so completely funny what price people will pay for partscasters just because some NAME player owned it. Keith is my favorite musician of all time and I had built two Micawbers back in the seventies, had to sell them when things got stupid after divorce, but I don’t even mod my guitars most times now, I did put a set of Tonerider Alnico 2 classics in my 30 th anniversary PRS SE just because the stock pickups were to powerful and I wanted a more PAF like tone. Other than that and Strat switch tips on my teles and everything gets Dunlop Strap Locks, they’re all stock.

    Micawber is currently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, along with Blackie and numerous other famous instruments. Looks to me like it has a lot of life left in it.

    This. I know exactly what Clapton's and Gilmour's #1 guitars look like. I have no clue what Keith Richards is playing.

    Every time I see that guitar it just gets cooler and cooler looking.

    Would it be fair to say KR and tech invented the Hot Rod Telecaster?
