This guy scored a fairly butchered ’66 Tele off Craigslist and did a full restoration himself. Check out the epic photo thread on TDPRI. Amazing workmanship!
Saw this over at Guitar Fail and had to post. Awesome!
Just got me a new (to me) Strat with vintage style tuners and was like, wha…? Wanted to get some new strings on there ASAP. This video showed me how.
Went in, dropped $66 on this stuff. Then I posted at TDPRI and got some great feedback. And then after a few days I decided it’s not for me right now and returned it all. Maybe later…
My “new” 2001 MIM Strat came to me with a 1/8th inch drill hole in the front (it was drilled by the previous owner for a midi pickup). I wanted to fix it without a ton of effort, spending a bunch of money or making it worse. I posted over on Strat Talk and got some good advice. Then I got some wood glue, a toothpick and some nail polish and had at it. Came out pretty good for $2. More pics after the jump!
I have the The Guitar Player Repair Guide, which is great, but I wanted to see some nice color Tele guts pics. And this step-by-step how to on Instructabiles is great.
Ok, so now that I have two Fenders and one cheap Chinese Tele, I think it’s time to take the Chinese Tele apart and put it back together. And maybe even try some soldering, too. What do you think? This video makes it look fairly straightforward.
Just got a Strat and am considering doing this…
