    I just picked up this guitar today. I don’t know much about it. It plays great. I know it’s 7.5 neck radius and vintage frets. It was an FSR for Willcutt Guitars. Does anyone know much about them? I have an email sent to get some specs. It smells like nitro and the neck feels like nitro. I attached a pic along with my other “custom telecaster”

    I will add that it came with all the avri style case candy. 6 saddle bridge, another capacitor and wiring diagram to install it, a strap, a cord , hangtags, and a ashtray. It was made in 2016.

    I am with you. This is my second go with them. I had a MIM deluxe I traded last year for a Baja. I may put an aftermarket one in it. I think telenator went out of business or I would do the mod 1 to it.

    Nice guitar! Willcutts is a big dealer in Lexington KY - they get a lot of special runs from Fender (regular line and Custom Shop), PRS (wood library program, Private Stock), and a lot of smaller builders like Collings, Suhr, Nick Huber, Asher, many others) and boutique amps (Carr, Dr. Z, etc.). I've dealt with them quite a bit - used to live in Louisville KY so it was a short drive over to Lexington to check things out. Great service; I'm sure someone will get back to you with a bit more detail on this one. Sorry, I don't recall these; they might have gotten them after I moved to Kansas City in 2012.

    I'm in love! What value pots are on the back p'up? Maybe look at a Lollar Regal or Creamery WRHB if you don't care for the stock one.

    I could never bond with Fenders WRHB copies.

    The Lollar Regal is really nice tho. Not quite a vintage WRHB but a very toneful choice.

    Congrats and good luck with the pup swap!

    I adjusted the pickup from a guide on here that Telenator recommended. It helped it some. I will probably end up changing it and the volume pot. Its ok for now since its not my main guitar and the tone one the bridge pickup is pretty sweet.
