Awsome dude !

Isn't this just a mediocre assembly of a stewmac kit? Check out the flare on the top piece of flatwork...
Here's your starter for 10.....
"We bought an original 1959 Esquire Relic Tele Bridge for a couple for thousand for reference."
"Original Relic". ha ha. There reference point was a reproduction and not an original. A couple of thousand as well OUCH.
By the way Spence love the play on words with the Shed Zeppelin's
Did they make pickups with Alnico 5 in 1959?
Would the string be white? I thought Leo put black dye in the wax.
Did everyone see that they bought a REISSUE tele pickup for "thousands" and copied that?
I'd just as soon buy a Duncan! At least he copied the real thing!
The damn thing is warped too!
Last year I put a large ball of string in a pine cupboard to keep it away from Number 1 son. I forgot all about it but found it last week. It's gone a straw colour all the way through. I'm wondering if it's turned colour as a result of being in a warm pine environment. In any case, another batch is in that cupboard now.
I really like how he keeps saying "Flush Pole Pieces". Well, the A is. "The winning bidder will be transported back to 1959 to see first hand what a 1959 Esquire Pickup looks like new and get the added bonus of what it sounded like as well." Then we'll bring them back and show them this!
Maybe it's just me, but I get anal glaucoma (I can't see my ass shipping this) about the looks of my pickups.
Why is the ground wire on the LEFT?
Stephens Design Pickups
That's why they said they bought a relic. They paid thousands of dollars for a piss poor copy made by Fender so they could copy it!
So it was the custom shop that got it wrong, and this joker is just copying the incorrect copy. He would have been better off buying one of Don's pickups and copying that (or a Duncan or Stich copy).
This reminds me of some of the Gibson LP reissues where they didn't have a real guitar to copy, so they went from photos, and got the curves all wrong!
The wrong people are running these companies.
Illusion pickups. Absolutely spot on name.
The wire angle at the hookup looks like to me the white wire is the end of the wind and the black is the start. Also I bet you can put a meter on 1 wire and 1 on the magnets on the ends and get a reading. Look at the top almost coming off the end magnets. I'd love to see the coil with no wrapping of the string on it If I had a spare 45.00 i'd buy it and take it apart step by step and take pictures and post them here.
I would hope they bought the whole guitar for 'thousands' and not just a RI pickup.
They mature whisky in wooden barrels...maybe this is just maturing string. Were your cupboards previously used to mature some cheap, shitty string first? If not then...well you probably know where that's going. I'll have the 18yr...smoky and peaty as you can get it.Last year I put a large ball of string in a pine cupboard to keep it away from Number 1 son. I forgot all about it but found it last week.

Morons!Let us first start off by saying how extremely rare the 1959 Esquire Relic Tele Bridge pickup is. Fender custom shop Reissued only 100 of the 1959 Esquire Relic LTD Tele guitar. Out of those 100 guitars you might find a hand full that have stripped them for parts. The point is if you ever come across a 1959 Esquire Tele Bridge pickup you better open your wallet wide because you are not the only one looking for them.We bought an original 1959 Esquire Relic Tele Bridge [pickup] for a couple for thousand for reference.
I guess if they ever came across a real 1959 Esquire Tele Bridge pickup they wouldn't know it from the "relic" copy!
I think the whole vintage and pseudo vintage guitar collectors market is just appalling. They have artificially inflated the prices of not only the real thing, but these dumb reissues.
Greed rules the world.
