View attachment 727283 View attachment 727279 Thought I'd upgrade the hardware on my new Bullet Tele to all brass. Just waiting on the brass tuners and a bone nut to install. I have bought a single ply black guard as I will be putting a humbucker in the neck as well. All of the hardware I made from solid brass plate except for the brass saddles, knobs and machine heads which are soon to arrive. Cutting the bridge pickup hole in the bridge plate was a bugger to do. Measure 15 times, cut once, lol. Also fitted CTS pots and a Switchcraft socket with braided insulated cable going on the reversed control plate. Frets polished smooth and fingerboard oiled. Nearly ready!
