    I'm going to highly doubt someone lets an American tele go for $450 without knowing it to be fake with those tuners.

    on the bright side, seems like whoever put those grovers on didn't drill any new holes, so the next owner could put the correct tuners on it without any extra holes being left behind...then again...the holes in the body...from a "bass pickup" being changed? hmm...

    Somebody needs to report Mr. "No LoBallers".


    Everyone knows an American Standard is 3 mount holes, not 4.

    Something about a guy who gets all "don't you try and rob me" while he's trying to rob someone else. Yecch.

    Hey Boris,

    Out of curiosity, is this what it would look like if someone tried to convert the new American Standard 3 hole six saddle to a 4 hole three saddle?

    That poor Squier. It doesn't deserve to be mixed up in something as sordid as this.
