    That looks great! Did the GFS HB drop right in? I believe I heard the CV50's Tele is already router for a HB. How well does that HB blend with the bridge PU?

    It took just a little "routing" for the screws to fit against the back of the existing humbucker rout. That HB blends well with the stock bridge PU I think.

    More info here, but not too much more:

    Here's my newly-acquired '60's style T by Danocaster. Shoreline gold w/ Voodoo humbucker and Mare bridge pickups. Mighty fine!

    Here's my guitar family portrait, as it now stands in early 2010. The Black Telecaster's the one that's been there the longest, and seen the most playing time by far. I've had it for over 25 years now.

    [​IMG]
    The Black Telecaster came about after spotting a beautiful flame maple Strat neck at John Sprung's shop in Wheaton, MD the summer of 1984. I figured a good consolation for getting kicked outta college was to get a Telecaster built with that neck. The inspiration was a combination of Steve Morse's Frankenstein Tele crossed with the Schecter Teles that Pete Townshend used in the early 80s. John Thurston of Koontz & Thurston obliged. Sadly, within a couple years the neck died of an uncorrectable S-bend warp, and was replaced with the current rock-stable ebony-on-maple Strat neck.

    [​IMG]
    The neck pickup is a DiMarzio SuperII, which is essentially a pair of SuperDistortion Strats joined to make a humbucker. The bridge pickup is the timeless Duncan JB, my favorite pickup. A hard tail Strat bridge was selected 'cause at the time I didn't know they made Tele bridges for humbuckers. The instrument's pretty beat up. Up until I picked up that georgeous spalted-top Ibanez in the summer of 2009, the Tele was my main (and sometimes ONLY) guitar, played day-in and day-out.

    [​IMG]
    I did the pickups and wiring myself, after K&T finished the finish and assembly. From left to right, the knobs are: tone for bridge PU, tone for neck PU, volume. From left to right, the switches are: pickup selector, bridge PU series/parallel, bridge PU coils in/out of phase, neck PU coil cut, phase between the PUs. I can make this thing sound like almost any guitar extant. I'm very seriously considering gutting the electronics on the Ibanez and duplicating this setup on it, 'cause I desperately miss the flexibility when I'm on the Izzy.


    Lastly, I've got a bin full of parts and pickups, and a couple of Ebay necks in the office at home. My first homebrew Tele is in the offing, at long last!

    Picked this beauty up less than a week ago. It's a 2009 American Standard, 2-tone sunburst with ash body and maple neck. All the pickups are stock and, for now, I'm planning on keeping it that way because I don't see how they could sound any better. Just performed a setup today and customized it to my liking. The more I look at teles--especially this one--the more I prefer their look, even over LPs. And need I say anything about their versatility? My gosh, I am playing "Limelight" by Rush one minute and the next I'm playing smooth, jazzy blues improvisation.

    Damn, Nick, that's one sweet-looking git! Gotta love the white trim on those sunbursts. Normally I'm not a fan of rosewood necks, but that one works very nicely.

    Can it jump over a ravine? Does it have the horn in it or do you just play the first line of "Dixie?" Does it cause the women around you to wear tiny cut-off jean shorts?

    It looks like it would do all those things
