This may be my FAVORITE telecaster® setup
Back in the early 80's I started custom cutting blank stock into familiar tele shaped guards, fitting old gibson® Soapbar pickups. (Guys were ditching those by the dozen to fit humbuckers- fools!) Looked cool, sounded amazing- I made a nice piece of coin doing that mod for players around New York.
Well here we go- a correct USA sized tele guard custom cut just for me with a perfect P90 soapbar cutout- and the pickup is located in the SWEET SPOT for sublime neck tones.
YES- you'll need to rout your guitar unless you already have a Nashville style swimming pool rout. If you do it's a drop in install.
