    I don’t remember if I’ve posted in here or not. I’ve thinned our my “herd” so I’m currently only rocking four guitars:

    Yes sir! Started out as a candy apple red classic player. Had to fill in the tremolo and move it back an inch or so, fill the thimble holes and redrill for different ones, new thinline jag neck, lots of work. :)

    Maybe went a little overboard cost wise, but you only live once. Gonna do a Tele one next.

    A couple cosmetic things I wished I had done differently, otherwise I'm satisfied I did this rather than spend the same amount for a used American Vintage.

    Nice collection. What is the third knob on some of these telecasters for?

    Thanks! I generally like to wire my Teles up with a volume control for each pickup, and from there I use a tone control for the bridge pickup only. I guess it's just a wiring scheme that I discovered that I liked a few years ago and stuck with it.

    just some random guitar pics... this one is a hamer steve stevens I bought when I was 14. It was in the northridge quake (95?) sitting in front of a laney half stack... the quake launched the head of the stack onto the head of this guitar! Had repaired it then but didn't want to break it the rest of the way off... 10 years later it finally broke again... popped her all the way off, scraped the old glue off, glued it back up and added a mahog overlay for strength...

    this one might be more up your alley here... currathers tele. traded on cl for it. had some red overspray that seeped into the laquer so stripped it and did a refin with true oil...

    I basically run a shelter for abused guitars... below is a 'dillion' that I bought on cl for $25. It had been shot 3 times with a .22. You can see the shots bottom/middle. IMG_2557.JPG

    filled the holes with epoxy and did a paint job, added hot rodded buckers and it's been a fav ever since!

    That’s an impressive guitar shelter you’re running!

    thank you sir - I appreciate you saying so. I do have a number of actual partscasters too... just was on a kick for guitars I sort of 'rescued'.
