    I want to make a string thru but only if its necessary. I want to get that bright tone twangy sound from the TC-10. Is this still possible without the string thru? I bought some high quality fender strings and gotoh vintage tuners from Stew Mac to try to get the best sound possible out of the Tele I want to build. I really have no idea on how to make a string thru at all thats why I only want to do it if I have to and if I have to can anyone help me step by step make the string thru?

    Well I don't have a drill press so I would have to do it by hand and that won't go well. So without a string through it'll still sound like a tele?

    the ones you prefer, like the feel of them and tonality. if you like the stringbending soft you choose something between 0,09-0,10 gauge, if like the bending a little firmer try 0,11-0,12 gauge strings, its a long way to find out your favorite strings. youll just have to test them
