Yes, Even though I have only discovered the pleasures of a Telecaster but not last week, I have decided to mod, mod, mod and possibley undertake more activities involving modding.

Its a standard blone/honey coloured Squier Affinity Telecaster. I noticed the body is 3-piece and seems ok. I'd rather not replace it.

I'm all for dropping a humbucker bridge and humbucker pickup on there. Any suggestions for alt. rock/indie sometimes leaning into metal?

I'm also gonna use a tele coil in the neck pickup, just an upgraded one.

I want the harness to basically look exactly like a standard telecasters, but I'm all up for push pulls and 5 way switching, any ideas?

I also plan on going a dark wine red with a black matte pickguard, ala George Harrison without the rosewood. The neck is all maple. I will possibly put some form of locking tuners and a Fender decal on it cause its amazing.

So any ideas?

Well yeah, its basically a Fenderisation of a Squier, I've seen parody decals on ebay such as 'Partsocaster', 'Pretender Bass', 'Jizz bass' etc, I might get one of them.

The PRS is officially on hold - Looks like I'm going for a RAN guitar.

You're kidding me! How much is a decent quality Fender or Squire J-Bass and one of those "Jizz Bass" decals?

#11

#12
That looks really, really cool. Can someone fix me a black script one up?

You could pencil it, scan it onto a computer to be touched up and then print it out on waterslide right?

I think the joke version decal is: TeleBastard.

Any wiring ideas folks?

How about the standard fender logo, and have a model name in block capitals underneath like they seem to be doing a lot now. Remember colourings too - this is going on an all maple neck.

Maybe this is better:

Oh sweet, that would be awesome. Just email it to contact(*at*)rockgardenlove.com


My next try..

EDIT:
Tweaked the E...

Tell me which basic idea you like best before I tweak them up with my image editor, as that parts alot of work.

That last one is perfect.

Perhaps make the modle name a bit smaller please. Also I know its asking a lot, but how about a 'Made in the UK' piece for the back with a fake (666's!) serial number like on squiers and fenders? That would make my life.

Any ideas on electronics mods?

Hey guys, ive got a question... how do you take a logo or font like that and get it painted on your guitar? Do you do it free hand?
#27
^You can also use waterslide decals, which is probably a better choice...waterslide decals are sold on www.smallbearelec.com

This will be awesome when it's done. The new decal thing is perfect as well.

Ped, be sure to post some "Before" pics as well!

I've decided I NEED a string thru bridge, as I had to remove the G and D saddles to actually get the strings in. Stupid top loader.

Also I removed the bridge because I dropped a spring down there by accident, and the earth wire and bridge pickup got kinda wrecked. I have half output on the bridge and massive buzz when I take my hands off. Oh well, I've noticed that the finish is REALLY thin (becuase I managed to carve a heart in just the top layers of laquer) so I may start stripping it down. I also think the neck needs adjustment. Oh well, time to start ripping it apart!

wots up with my name is that i'm too lazy to be a CC so I look for new CC's and mods Pink actually became a mod on my recomendation after the dave and jenny were stripped of their mod ship for reasons I won't go into here because that's their buisness although some of you will already know

back to topic this looks fantastic Ped looking forward to the finished product

Wait, so is the headstock decal good, or do you want it tweaked still?
