As I've said in most of my other posts, I had a guitar tech install a pair of Fralin Steel Pole 42 pickups in my 2007, American Series Tele. The tech also installed a new control plate, which is reversed, that also came from Lindy's shop. When I got the guitar back from the tech and got it home, I noticed the control plate was not sitting flush with the guitar's surface. At first, I thought it might be wires getting in the way, then maybe screws were skewed pushing the plate up. Then I realized that the floor of the cavity holding the hardware on the control plate was not cut deep enough on the PU selector switch side. It was not a problem cutting the floor of the cavity about an eighth inch deeper with a wood carving tool so that the switch could set lower and the plate lay flush to the surface. While I was trying to figure out the problem I called Fralin's shop and spoke directly with Lindy. This was the first time he'd heard the problem. And though I didn't actually solve the problem with Lindy over the phone, I was impressed and grateful that he took the time to help me figure it out. But I also post this as a warning to those who have a similar experience that if you are planning on making that mod, you might want to check this out before taking the IQ test it took me longer than it should have to solve.
