    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?

    GREAT CHOICE! I bought one of these last year and of the 10ish guitars I have owned it's my favorite...it just has a special something and such a sweet tone that I could never achieve on any other guitar

    Thank you! Sure, just send me your address and I'll send it right over - but, you have to give it back to me for my birthday in October!
