Found a reclaimed redwood T-type body locally, apparently from a local house that was being rebuilt or something. He bought it from someone who had done the work of turning it into a guitar, who may have been a member here as I found some old threads about "1890s reclaimed redwood" and that's what this was described as. Seller also had a Warmoth Strat neck that had been modified to fit into the Tele pocket for reasonable money so I bought both to start off this build. My other electric is my first "Good" guitar, a Gibson Explorer from 2001 with Burstbuckers. Amps are currently a '66 blackface Bandmaster, 5F1 Champ clone in a 1x12 combo and a Mini-Tonemaster/Pato-Tone. Had an '04 American Telecaster which I really liked the pickups of. I mention the mini amps because part of the reason for the Tele build is to have something that I can keep on a stand or hanging on a wall without worrying about it like I would the Explorer. Something ready to play for 5 mins, vs dragging out the case and tube amps. Current parts accumulation: Redwood body, fairly thin clear nitro finish with lots of dings/marks, thru strung. Warmoth vintage truss maple neck. Sung-il Wilkinson chrome bridge Wilkinson compensated saddle set Ugly black bridge screws Rock Rabbit alu tilted switch control panel TCS nickel '52 slot head neck plate/screws Bridge pickup from Squier CV En route: Fender 4-way switch Switchcraft jack Callaham electrosocket Still need: Neck pickup of some kind Better/different bridge pickup to match whatever future neck output is? Pots (probably a no-load for the tone), likely do the resistor trick to see a 250K for bridge and 500K neck Knobs (Chicken heads be too weird for use on a guitar?) Body is routed for a P90/Filtertron neck pickup and standard Tele bridge which is throwing me for a bit of a loop... I'm not opposed to a P90 but with my Explorer having Burstbuckers, I want a contrast to that and not another thick beefy tone. I guess I should just order a cheap Tron and a P90 and try both? Does anyone make a plate to run normal Tele neck pickup in a P90 route? Would that be insane to do? Any proven/repeatable way to knock down some of the shine off the chrome bridge since everything else is nickel/softer finishes?
