    It took me a minute to understand what I was seeing. Thought you'd photoshopped something. Around here, when we see a cactus like that, it's in a little 4" pot. :lol:

    Then I noted your location... :rolleyes:

    Gorgeous guitars. Crazy birds eye on that neck...

    Yeah. It's an on-on-on DPDT, which I wire to split in the middle, and series on one end, parallel on the other. Parallel is where it's at for a humbucker on a Fender, especially when matched with a single. IMO.

    Funny, I was thinking I barely qualify, among such esteemed and beautiful '62s...

    lovely looking Tele.

    Sounds cool...

    ...but for me, I’m just crap with tiny little switches when playing live. I can only deal with big on off switches.

    Yeah, I just noodle around at home. And honestly, most of the wiring schemes I come up with... I rarely use. With that humbucker, my first in a Tele, still not sure if I like the idea... but I could have just hard-wired it to parallel and been happy. But then the build-n-tinker process wouldn't be as interesting. :)

    I love double-bounded teles they look so sharp and classy.

    Here's my Squier CVC.

    Just curious - but most of the bound teles seem to have rosewood fretboards. What's the deal with that? Saw a few photos of some maples...

    You gotta love the Squiers CVC!

    What's the difference between these two? Apart from the pickguard of course.

    Y'all are seriously fueling my GAS. I've wanted a double-bound Tele since the 80s (sunburst, please, with a rosewood fretboard), but have yet to stumble upon the right one at the right time.

    One day...

    I have no idea why, but it does seem that way. Very curious.

    Well, historically, it's an early 60s thang. Hence the AVRI 62 reissue. All rosewood boards by that time. Slab boards, too (yum).

    If you say "double bound" in a word association psychological profile... hosted by TDPRI... :twisted:

    The answer is "1962". (And "skinny neck", unfortunately) :lol:

    Maybe because maple is cheaper and was/is more available domestically? Most of the rosewood fretboards I've handled have been flatter, too. But that's a limited sample on teles.

    Well, initially, Leo designed a one-piece neck, with no truss rod. Then added the rod, and skunk stripe on the back. So, obviously maple.

    Only later, did he not appreciate what he saw on television. Namely dirty maple fingerboards, with lacquer rubbing off, and grime embedding in the grain. Every other maker used rosewood, and aside from looks, Leo was also interested in his guitars having the acceptance of the "jazz" crowd, and in competing with Gibson. I'm sure all contributed to the move to rosewood, which happened during '59. There are both maple and rosewood examples of '59 Strats and Teles. Also, keep in mind, the Jazzmaster debuted in '59, with rosewood.

    60s rosewood boards weren't flatter. They were still all 7.25", just like the AVRI62, and the AV64.
