I scored a USACG tele neck the other day (mahogany, Brazilian rosewood 24-3/4” conversion) and was going to sell it but then scored a squier offset tele in a shockingly similar colour and having put the two together I’ve decided to keep hold of it for now.
The neck is fantastic, very similar to my Gibson SG and although it pains me to say it I think it’s slightly nicer to play… and whilst the marrying up of a tele and a jazzmaster is still a bit of a shock visually to me it’s a glorious combination to every other sense.
I’ve ordered a fender cunife WRHB to put in the neck and have a couple of 1 Meg pots to put in it. I’ve never experienced a real WRHB and am very excited to do so.
I’m assuming that the tele bridge pickup will be pretty unbearable with 1 Meg pots, im toying with the idea of modifying a 72 custom scratchplate to fit the JM shape so I can have different pots for the single coil…
