    One for Tele Tuesday. I've been working on this for a few months. All that's left is to string it up and do a setup. Lindy Fralin pickups. Fender body. WD Music neck.
    Bragging rights for the first person to point out what's different. Other than the switch plate.

    I think it would be quicker to name what is not different! Cool guitar.

    Very nice! I like the right hand neck on the left hand body.

    P90 Neck - 5% overwind
    Steel Pole 43 for the bridge.
    She should be fine as wine.

    I used a left-handed bridge on my right-handed Tele partscaster. I "think" I perceive a slightly less "brittle" treble than usual.....but that may be because I WANTED to hear it that way. At any rate, it sounds good.
    Remind people that if you change the bridge, you also have to use saddles (if compensated) that conform to the way you play. (right or left handed).
    Cool guitar......

    Let us know how the Steel Pole 43 sounds. I think Fralin describes it as sounding 75% P90 and 25% standard telecaster bridge or something to that effect. I currently don’t have a guitar with P90’s and thought about this pick up because I believe it fits a standard telecaster cavity.

    It looks like the body is facing the wrong direction. Sorry mate, maybe you can still get a refund.

    You put the pickups and neck on the backside, not the front. Now you'll have to learn to play left handed. :)
