    Here is my tele crossed with a Mike Stern Yamaha with a little PRS DGT wiring thrown in. It’s a jazz box without the box. Love it!

    You're very welcome!
    I say that tongue-in-cheek.....there's lots of guys here who probably helped with info and advice, but it wasn't me. I come here to learn, too. While I've only done one build, start to finish, the greatest thing I've gotten from these guys is sources for stuff I knew nothing about. How I existed without TDPRI for so long is beyond me.....;)

    I've learned a WHOLE lot since I joined here in '10. Never concerned myself too much about the workings and whatnot of guitars but coming here you kinda can't help yourself. I'd never do a build but I've done some modding that twenty years ago I would never have even thought to do. Fun and games as they say.

    Stellar job on yours, David.

    Yes! It has made me realise that Fender type instruments are approachable for modifying. Good tools and some experience make a big difference. I’m still a safe distance away from doing anything irreversible with woodwork.

    Yeah, I'm all like "step away from the wood! Don't touch it!"

    I’ve modded this while temporarily in the US. I might have to take raincheck until I have something half decent to play it through.
