    I've already posted a photo in here of my AVRI '62 Tele Custom, but I put a Seymour Duncan SM-1N mini-humbucker in it yesterday and added compensated brass saddles so I thought I would post it again.

    No, the Tele I have is a '08 HWY1. A few days ago, I decided to give this Tele a 'Keef' treatment and added a neck humbucker. The bridge pup was replaced with a SD broadcaster and the neck pup is a Lollar Imperial. I did however route the body to necessitate the neck humbucker which, surprisingly came out not too bad considering I used chisels:oops:. I really find this pickup configuration far more more versatile for my playing needs. I ultimately want to add some quality brass saddles in the future.

    Daring duo

    My two builds, "penny" on the left and my all hog tentatively called "Invictus" latin for unconquerable. I know, naming guitars is total dorkfish, but what ever. Penny is penny because it's coppertone (real original I know) Invictus so named because it was my Dad's favorite poem and what my sister read at his funeral:

    Invictus
    by William Ernest Henley; 1849-1903

    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the Pit from pole to pole,

    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.

    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the horror of the shade,

    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,

    I am the master of my fate;
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Refinished 1987 Squier Telecaster made in japan with Seymour Duncan Alnico II
    Refinished 3 years ago by my uncle who restores costly vintage piano for a living, it was originally yellow but the little "punker" I was in 1990 had sandpapered it, scratched it and had a few stickers on it. Anyways I think my uncle did a wonderful job at refinishing it and those 80's made in Japan Squiers are great instruments. I got Seymour Duncan Alnico II at about the same time it was refinished, they sound great...[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
