I've had my Tele VM for a good few years and I love it dearly. I got this second hand around 6 years ago from a guy who had already done some mods to it. He removed the middle pickup, put in a new Cap, flipped the control plate and a fender ash try bridge. It stayed like this for a year or two. I made some mods myself to bring it more into what I wanted from the guitar. I went for new custom hand wound pickups, a PAF style in the neck and an Alnico 3 flat pole in the bridge wound to lapsteel specs, I'm going after Micawber tone as this guitar lives in open G for Stones and Black Crowes riffs. I also changed the saddles from steel to brass as I prefer the tone and added a bone nut as I do this on all my guitars. Also went for a red tort guard. I'm now refinishing the guitar in nitro butterscotch and a blackguard as for me this is the best colour for a telecaster. I was planning on sanding the poly down and shooting nitro over the top but to be honest the poly wasn't as thick as on some of the other squier's I've refinned and I've ended up going through in a few places. So I'm now waiting on some sanding sealer before I can shoot the colour. To be honest as I am planning on a light relic the areas I have gone through might end up getting scraped to show a little bit of wood through the nitro. I have also bought new pots, CTS for both tone and volume, I've bought a switch volume pot so I can split the neck hb. And I went for a new orange drop cap as well. I'll post some more pictures as I get into painting in the next week or so.
