Hey guys n' gals was thinking of getting a telecaster and adding a strat type tremolo to it like the ic below. How difficult eould this be, cheers.



Also thinking of doing a custom Jimmy Page paint job as well.

It'll be quite difficult. You could get a Stetsbar, which you don't have to change anything, and it just slips on.

Unless you want the looks of the Strat, that's a better option.

Funnily enough, I was wondering if you can get a Tele with a trem on it... I'm drawn between a Tele and a Strat for a new guitar - I think I prefer the look of a Tele, but the Strat is a bit more functional with the trem.

Well youd have to route the body to support the trem, get the measurements exact from the bridge to the pickup, then route the back for the springs, also if its top loading youd have to deal with making it string thru.

Or you could sticka bigsby/jag style trem on it and just laod the strings through the bridge in the regular top loading holes from the trem .

^ That's cool as hell. Is that a custom job someone did? Or is that actually a production guitar for some obscure company?

Haha, each to their own. I had to look at it a few times to make sure I was seeing what I was actually seeing.

Pricey though :P I think I'll just stick with my standard Tele >.<

Yeah, I presumed it was just a strat to start with and wondered why he had posted it...

Then I noticed the lack of horns...
