Yeah, 10mm. I mounted up a set of Schaler locking with no issues. Holes are modern size. Adaptor bushing would be needed foe true vintage style tuners.

Yes you need it. No I didn't need two but later I found out I did! That pair of pickups I had just sitting there needed some love.

Ok, the black bound set neck Tele body showed up. Very cool looking and well built. The finish on this one is not as nice as the Strat and there is a ding in the top about 1/8" just below the neck PU. They got a bit of paint on the binding too. This will clean up easily.

It could use a final buff but if it were any other color than black you wouldn't see that.

I'll post pics in a new thread once I start work on it.

Might be a bit longer than I thought. I'm changing bridge models and had to order it. Going with vintage Strat hardtail and just a trim ring on the bridge PU.
