    I have changed the bridge!

    This is a Guitar Mill Tele, actually an Esquire*. Its one piece ash, blonde burst. CS med C neck, Gotoh tuners. Pick up is a Wilde L298. All my own vintage electrics. I put all the parts together. A pro set up is yet to be done (so far so good on my own setup).

    I had a stainlesssteel bridge but on a whim I changed it for a brass Armadillo (TX) one with Keef saddles. Nice one. So then I got other hardware to match the bridge.

    *I like Esquires, but I like the look of the Tele neck pup, so I have a pup cover filled with a wooden chock which screws into the body.

    First time post. I recieved my dream tele 3 weeks ago and decided to come here to get peoples thoughts on vintage style bridges, pickups etc.

    So here's my new custom Koll T style. Lot's of custom tweaks like subtle contours, control wiring, new Dimarzio Area T615 bridge pickup and Area T neck, 1 piece quarter sawn neck, stainless steel frets and a dark korina skunk stripe....:

    Very nice, Abesapien!

    I hope you get to play it every once in a while. I believe I would miss that one, when she left me!

    This is such a sweetie pie. She's the number 1 choice, to play through my 2008 '65 Super Reverb Reissue, cranked.

    Yes, she really is 1 piece. You've seen the shots of the ends before. Crazy!
