Thanks LeftyMeister! It's nice to feel wanted.

However, I haven't seen a strong show of hands...

OK - Update.

The Tele *is* going to look a bit different.

I couldn't help myself. :-P

OK - the Strat-o-copy is *almost* done. It is playable now. No pictures yet. I'm still missing the knobs and the trem cover. I neglected to order a matching trem cover when I ordered the PG. It's not the first time I've done that.

The Tele-clone is going to be another week or so. I've had parts sourcing issues. I think I have all the stuff on the way here now - what isn't here already.

Hopefully Friday. I at least want the knobs on it. You guys know what the back of a guitar looks like. ;-)

OK - I found some speed knobs that I kinda like. They're on there for now.

Here's the scoop. That's a pair of StewMac Parson Street humbuckers. The bridge is A2 and the neck A5. They Ohm out at 8.2k and 7.5k respectively.

I had to rout a lot under the PG. Not quite to a swimming pool. More like a hot tub and a kiddy pool. ;-)

There is a master volume and master tone control. They are coupled by the tone cap - a .022uF Orange Dop - ala '50s Les Paul wiring. Three way Tele switch.

I have another Double-Fat Strat. It has a pair of ToneRider A2 humbuckers w/2 volume controls and no tone controls at all. It also has a three-way switch.

Thanks! That was a custom order from Warmoth.

When the weather warms up I might strip the body and dye it green.

Very cool, Eric! Nice to see that guitar come back to life in a new way!


Looking forward to seeing what you do to the Tele!

Did someone say Green Strat?

FWIW - shooting the color green is somehow tricky. The PG is actually a bit deeper green than the image shows.

There is one thing yet to be decided on the Tele. That being the neck pickup. I might leave the DiMarzio Area 58(?) in it. Dunno...

It will probably be the first weekend of the new year before I have that guitar done.

The knobs on the Strat may not stay. I'll see when the ones I intended to go on the guitar show up tomorrow.

You've got a Tele switch tip on there, why not gold Tele knobs?
