It took me most of last year to save up for and build a Mission 5e3 amp. It sounds sweet with my Danelectro, but now I want a Tele. Actually, I want a LP Junior Special too. Last fall I even went to my local shop with a friend to look at a used Reverend Roundhouse. I brought my amp along because I was ready to buy that day, but something wasn’t quite right and I got cold feet. A few days later I knew it was because I wanted another project. I realize that this partscaster will end up costing me more money over time, but I hope the whole process will be more satisfying. I’m trying to combine my favorite parts of the Telecaster with my favorite parts of the LP Jr. Special. Fano’s Alt De Facto SP6 makes me believe it’s not a terrible idea: Decisions I’ve made: 1. One-piece solid mahogany body from Renegade 2. Black matte pickguard from Warmoth 3. 542 bridge from Budz with a cream colored P-90 in the neck (I love Neil Young’s wooly sound) I’m leaning toward: 1. Brass “Keef” Micawber bridge from Armadillo or Gotoh brass bridge. (I want to be able to intonate.) 2. Stainless steel control plate and stainless knobs from Armadillo. (I don’t mind if the brass bridge doesn’t match the stainless control plate, and I like the rugged look.) Undecided about: 1. A 4-way switch for series/parallel wiring? 2. Cherry red stain with Tru-oil finish? http://www.tdpri.com/forum/finely-finished/444749-mahogany-tele-how-get-finish.html#post5419082 3. No stain and just Tru-oil satin finish? http://www.tdpri.com/forum/finely-finished/201944-oil-finish-red-blue-2.html#post2373201 4. Fat neck with maple fretboard? 5. Fat neck with rosewood fretboard? Any ideas or advice? Thanks!
