    My latest C/L find

    I bought this John 5 Telecaster for $100.00 last week off of Craigslist. I have added some of the missing pieces and made it into a "Mule" for testing pickups and wiring.

    The changes I made were to the input jack, new 250 ohm pots, a cheap neck pickup in a three-ply pick guard and black tuners. I'm still playing with the wiring. It now has Humbucker/Bypass/Both pickups controlled by the three-way switch.

    I really like the placement of the switch away from the control plate and up out of the way. I like it but it is really hard to take a picture of since it is so shiny.

    My favorite guitar right now. My only Squier at the moment, but that'll change.

    Nothing special here...

    Just my old Squier Standard. I loaned it to a friend and a week later he had a house fire! It didn't burn, but the firemen did manage to kick it over and stomp on it. It has a couple small dings in the neck, but no major damage. It did get it's fair share of water, smoke and filth. Nothing a little Naptha couldn't sort out.

    Here it is with a new pickguard, pickups, new electronics and new strings. Tele's are Tuff! :)

    The Antique Sunburst on the Squier Stds is my fave Squier colour.

    Squier Std Teles are great guitars, with really nice necks. The pickups are pretty sweet too, IMO

    I wanna play ...

    .. I have a small brace of squiers at the moment.

    My classic vibe: patent bridge, comp. saddles, quality pots, sprague, 4 way, duncan quarter pounder bridge, fender scn neck, axetreme pickguard: happy punter.

    If this thread develops legs, i'll post some of the others.

    Those Antique Sunburst Standard Tele's are EXACTLY why I'm buying one. For what they are and at my playing level: Perfect!

    Here's my Silver Series Squier:

    Great neck!! That's the best feature of the guitar. A part from that it is not heavy and I like the top loader bridge.

    CV50 2TSB Strat and CV50 BSB Tele.

    The Strat is quite heavily modded. Original pups in neck and middle with rails in the bridge; all new electrics with master volume and master tone that works on all three pickups; solid steel trem block; USA string tree. Back of the neck de-glossed back to satin.

    The Tele is totally stock except for a similar neck de-gloss, roller string tree and the knobs which I changed to Strat knobs purely for the visual reference of the numbers. Not planning to change anything else on the Tele.

    Love these guitars. :)

    Finally get my hands on a new '51, couldn't help but take it home.
    All the fun of the original, but with smooth fret ends, block saddles, and a string through body (doesn't say 51 on it anywhere now).

    My CV '50s has changed quite a bit since my first one (this is my third one). The first one had a strap button that wouldn't stay tight. When I finally took it off I found that the hole had been drilled incorrectly so they just drilled a new hole right next to the first one and a split developed between the two holes. Fender replaced the guitar. I never could get the new one to set up properly and it was discovered to have a warped neck. Fender replaced that guitar too. With each replacement I had to put the guitar back to stock configuration for the exchange. This one also has a nicely flamed neck which really compliments the extensive number of mods.

    That's not just a good looker but nice photos and a great layout. Is it difficult to put pics together like that?
