    I don't have to watch that to know what tele players think.

    So I'll list what they think.

    Buy a tele, change the pickups, then the bridge, if it's a 3 saddle change the saddles, change the tuners. Change the pick guard, mist likely... Change the neck.

    Then find the most vintage or boutique amp.

    Brag on the internet of what an awesome deal you got on a tele before changing all the parts out.

    Now that is what tele players think.

    Bun, you are so right!
    I'm thinking I would add about 5 boutique pedals to the rig, too!

    The EH Knockout Attack Equalizer will also make buckers sound like strats and teles, or pretty close anyway. A very cool and unique EQ.

    If it only takes 2 minutes to do it why does it take nearly 13 minutes to tell us how? :rolleyes:

    I think this video could have been about 30 seconds long and it would have made a lot more sense. :rolleyes: CS

    breakdown

    i skipped through it to find what the point was:

    @7:13 we have our explanation: he took out the pole pieces on one of the coils

    @9:58 we have a demo: yeah... sounds like a single coil...

    @4:51... dude... gross...

    like others have said, could've done this demo in 2 minutes like the title implied :D

    the unveil
    the sound
    the hack

    tried to embed the videos with time stamps... didn't work, so you gotta use the links. either way... not the worst idea on the planet i guess. you'll still end up with signal cancelling like noiseless single coils. that lovely "close but no cigar" effect

    Scott Grove has many posts on youtube. I sat through a few and found he was either 1) wrong on certain points
    2) Negative to many foreign ( non-US0 guitars) or
    30 misleading on certain points.
    BTW wouldn't reversing a LP neck p/up reverse the polarity? wouldn't that lead to that thin strat sound ( 2nd. and 4th. switch positions), just curious if anyone knows the answer to that.
