    I must have gotten bit by a snapping turtle or had salmonella from owning baby Slider turtles, but whatever the reason it lead me to build this just recently:

    Basically what my concept entailed was installing a pair of DeArmond Dynasonics with only the magnet pole pieces & adjustment screws showing. It was easy once I figured out how to do it accurately in ONE TRY! 24 holes. 1 perfectly colored pickguard. It's also got a Warmoth neck, just like my Tele, so it feels exactly the same, but has an entirely different voice.

    Thanks for looking!
