    Nothing compared to most of what I've seen here but I like it. I'd like it better if I could get ahold of some better pickups for it.

    Built a '52...

    Hello all telecaster afficionados,

    just finished building my second 'Alleycat Relics' '52.
    And I sold it yesterday. I found it a bit hard to part...

    Alder body, vintage 52 neck
    Fender Noiseless pickups, vintage F bridge etc etc.
    And luckily my local hardware store had all needed slot screws in the back :)

    Luckily I am building another one almost exactly the same.

    Chrs,

    Krijn 'Alleycat Relics' from Amsterdam.

    "THIS JUST IN...Nocaster!!!"

    It arrived late Friday with just enough time to slap a set of strings on it and head for the gig. Never touched the other guitars I'd brought as backups. I'm hooked <again>

    Nice. Is that a green limited edition Class 5 Marshall and where did you get it from? I'm also in Montreal.

    My new tele

    I had to get another one. I posted here earlier my stock 78 but the downside of the 78 is I feel really bad about modifying it in any way. I wanted something that I could experiment with and build they way I want. So here it is, the consummate modified tele, the Jerry Donahue. Jerry did all that he wanted to make this tele his own and now I have modified it yet again to be all that I want. Here it is to date:

    To remain the same:
    Bound sunburst body......stock
    Soft V neck......stock

    Modified already:
    CTS Pots..........mod
    Switchcraft 3way....mod
    Switchcraft jack.....mod
    Vitamin Q "paper in oil" cap....mod
    Electrosocket cup.....mod
    custom shop strat neck pup.....mod
    custom shop bridge pup.....mod
    cloth covered wiring.....mod
    new jack plate and knobs.....mod (only so I could keep the original electronics in one assembly)

    yet to be done:
    brass compensated saddles
    bone nut
    18:1 tuners

    The bottom line..........my favorite guitar
