    My SX STL-50. The most recent mod was the P90 in the neck. It's a GFS Alnico P90 rehoused in a non-plated nickel-silver cover from Philadelphia Luthier Supply. A while ago I had upgraded the bridge and electronics and a GFS Repro 50's bridge pickup.

    Love it! what is the P-90 like? Does it balance well with the bridge PUP?

    It's worked out really good, especially for slide. The metal case and a lower height seems to help it blend better with the bridge pickup. The P90 is around 8.2k and the bridge is about 7.4k so the P90 does dominate in the middle position.

    I no longer own this heavily modified 2006 '69 Thinline Reissue. New pickguard, Lollar Charlie Christian in the neck position, Wilkinson bridge and new tuners. I miss this guitar.

    [​IMG]My other (main) tele is all built from parts so I cant really call it a modded tele.
    This one is a 2012 USA standard. All the mods are in the pic.
    Fralins stock set, gotoh brass saddles, tort guard and a complete rewire.
    Carol (the lizard) is not a mod, shes just being a glamour model.

    Warmoth swamp ash body finished in nitro. Warmoth compound radius roasted maple neck, oil finish, jumbo frets. Fralin Blues special 5%/2% overwound set. Gotoh compensated bridge. coolest thing: bakelite pickguard.
