Nice mods, great build. Painting will give you self satisfaction even with spray cans and no Tele will look any better than in one of Fender's classic "soft" colors. Is that the Chinese Bigsby look-a-like bridge I've been seeing on Ebay? If "yes" do you think it will work with a factory top load Affinity Tele six-saddle bridge or would the angle of the string through the saddles and base of bridge plate be too great? I may have to Bubba-Mod my bridge and install the three barrel saddles. Any intonation problems with that set-up?
