I've been working on this project for a while now and the guitar has been through lots of variations over this time. It started off as Blue Squier Telecaster, then modified to an Esquire, then I changed the (worn out) neck for a MIM 'Fat '51 U' neck with a 9.5" radius. I'd planed to respray the Squier body, but just came across this body on a UK site that I've bought most of my guitar parts and tools from: Axecaster, with a body finished by SC Relics. Photos first, spec later for anyone interested: Specs for those interested: Body by SC Relics, aged, yellowed and marked, in nitro. Neck by Fender MIM Fat '51 U 9.5" radius. Gotoh SD91 aged tuners. Fender vintage bridge, sides cut down to clear my pick, Fender steel saddles. B stock knobs and control plate from Axecaster that I then aged. Bakelite guard, with the sides wet sanded to give a smoother edge. Oil City 'Diesel Tap' pick up with 6k/9k windings. CTS 250K pots, tone pot has a pull switch to control the tap on the pickup. 0.022uF Orange drop tone cap. Mullard NOS 3300pf capacitor for the 'cocked wah' front switch position (modified 'Eldred' circuit). Electrosocket jack plate and switch craft socket. Strap buttons and assorted screws taken from Squier Tele (that's all that is left ). I have an Eric Clapton mid boost kit that I may fit under the guard, but I will need to do some re-wiring and to route a bigger neck pick up hole to fit the PCB. I might not bother as there is plenty of variety in the sounds between the two pick up taps, plus the 3 way switch options: 1. Fully back is volume only, with tone bypassed for a slightly brighter/louder sound. 2. Middle position is volume and tone in circuit (like a standard Tele in the fully back position). 3. Fully forward is a fixed tone (aka 'Cocked wah') with volume in circuit, works really well with distortion. All of the above with the tone knob pulled out for the 6k winding, giving a lower output, brighter tone or knob pushed down for a higher output darker tone.
