Tim at Tym Guitars just finshed this for me...

2 outputs, Bigsby, Roller bridge, new nut.
2 vol, 1 tone (the other is the new output) each p'up an output each for different amps (neck through a bass amp after octave down and fuzz)

Should be fun :twisted:

Tim is an absolute guru and a great bloke to have a yarn with. Not surprisingly he has done a great job on your tele there. Kudos.

Out of interest, why the two outs?
I can imagine uses for that, but curious what yours in particular were?

He outlines why below the pic. He also does it to enable a quick-change in event of disaster - Tym does a lot of work for indie/punk/garage bands, and busted jacks must be fairly common amomgst his clientele!

Glad to see such a messy bench, makes me feel better about mine...

I'm in a band with Tim who did the mods. I think I can safely say that we aren't the most technically gifted guitarists around (although our drummer is!) so we overcome(?) this with lots of pedals, amps and non standard guitar alterations. We think our rabble sounds better because of this.

This is Tim's number 1 atm...

an old Jazzmaster he's modded with a bass p'up in the neck cavity etc You can read the whole story here...

He's just finished a Mosrite Ventures version as a backup.

Btw, that Melody Maker looks awesome Papa Joe
