    Well I did up my first kick at a Micawber style Tele bridge pickup. The customer wanted it for a Tele with a HB in the neck. Took it to 10kΩ of 43. Lots of room left over on the bobbin for a hotter version if needed. Customer picked it up last night and just called to let me know that he was extremely happy with the tone relative to a couple other bridges he had in it before. The tone and power worked well between the neck and bridge. A little thicker in the bridge but not as touch sensative as the lower output versions in the guitar previously. This one was built with A5's. I may have him try a version with A3's to see how it compares. All in all, a happy player and some constructive feedback on a new wind. Tomorrow. . . Fishing. . .

    Been working off and on this week on my lefty test tele.
    It came with the standard two tele pickups with an ashtray bridge.
    I've always wanted to install a new pickguard with a strat pickup in the middle.
    Couldn't find the pickguard I wanted, for a left hand tele.
    So while ordering some other templates, for a customer project, I also ordered the templates to rout for strat pickup.
    It takes two templates, one to rout the pickguard, and one to rout the body.
    Also part of the project, required rewinding the neck pickup, building a middle pickup, and installing a 5 way switch.
    I rewound the neck pickup same polarity as the bridge pickup, and wound the pickup with some small 42SP, wire I had.
    The guitar sounds great, and is more fun to play with the 3 pickups.
    Here are the before and after pictures, it came out better than I expected!
    This was a fun project!
