Hey, Pat V, that blue guard looks great! Did you have to make a router template to open the body for the switches and bridge pickup?
Thanks! I didn't make a template. I just taped off my boundary and did the work with a small hand router. It's pretty straight forward.
Here's mine! A big thanks to Tony Mellichampe for making everything work.
Popped in some Gibson PAF style HB's
Slapped on this sweet little compensated cutoff tele bridge
And put in some vintage Fender tuners. The bushings were too small so I had to get larger ones.
Nice job! Did you colour the neck too?
Yep! I forgot to mention that. I started to put a walnut stain on it but I never finished. I'll have to sand and restain soon.
Like it, I was eyeing up the cut-off tele bridge idea too. Nice to see it looks good.
It really does doesnt it! I am going to be doing the same to an Imperial Blue one for drop tunings.
I got some flat pole, alnico single coil pickups for Christmas and was able to finish my Bullet Mustang mods. I still need to dial in the pickup height and find some strings that will work well with these pickups. But, it's nice to have a SS Mustang again and one that stays in tune.
That turned out really well! Congrats!
Thanks, Pat V. If Squier made ‘em like this, I bet they could sell a million.
i want the FSR colors in holland
When I had my surf green Mustang apart, I saw that the undercoat of body paint is black. This guitar should look pretty cool as it wears.
That looos great!!!
Each to their own but I love the big CBS style headstock. Part of the reason I decided to buy my mustang.
Some truly fantastic guitars in this thread. Kudos to all. @robot after seeing the cut down headstock coloured to match the body I can see the appeal.
Got some great ideas for my Mustang. Cheers all!
Wow! That is not a color combo I would’ve ever thought to do… And it’s not really me… I’m more of a black on black, black and silver or white on white kinda guy...
But holy smokes that just works doesn’t it?! It looks amazing! Great work!
has anyone tried a mirror pickguard on a black one yet? i wonder how that looks
I'm Tommaso and I live in Firenze, Italy.
I just wanted to share with you guys the work I've done with my Bullet Mustang.
I've read a lot of interesting and usefull info on this forum and I want to contribute leaving my feedbacks here.
I bought a used black Bullet Mustang for 100€ and here is what I did.
As you can see, I removed the black paint and I did something like a natural finish.
The wood is what it is but I think the result looks good
Rolling string trees: Gotoh
I slightly aged the neck, I don't like that almost white finish.
I'm still working on it, I have to change the saddles and check the electronics.
If you're instersted I have the work in progress photos.
That is a thing of beauty! really like the natural finish and I haven't seen any like that on here before. Looking forward to hearing updates as this progresses. Welcome to the forum. Tommaso.
