A few months back I bought a batterd and abused 2001 hard tail Squire Bullet from a pawnshop. The guitar had been hanging there for well over a year and I had passed on her many times before. Last Oct I I finally gave in and bought her for $40 tax included - 'out the door'. Beat to heck, the elctronincs didn't work, and the high E string saddle was a replacement - didn't match. My first intent was to re-paint her. So I stripped her down and did she ever need cleaning up. So I set about to clean up 10 years of grime. I had a macting string saddle in my parts bin and I cleaned up the bridge. Next was to replace the tuners with a nice set ok Wilinsons that I had. I pulled the old diamond backs and drilled out the holes to 10mm. Then I filled the old screw holes Then I installed the new tuners. Next was to do something with the electronics. I have been itching for a P90 in the bridge Strat and did some research and stumbled accross Debbie Davies' Baby Blue guitar: http://www.debbiedavies.com/guitars.html Looked real nice so I decided to do a similar guitar. I bought a new Mighty Mite P90 and a used Seymour Duncan Cool Rails. Digging through my parts been I found a MRG Filtertron humbucker that Iwould work nicely in the neck. I had Terrapin Guitars make a custom pickguard for the pickups. http://www.terrapinisland.com/ I set it up with one tone & one vol using 500K CTS pots & a .047 cap. Wireded it up and had my tech do the final set up and bone nut. The only knobs I had in my parts bin that are 1/4" shaft size were some wood ones. I ordered correct white Fender knobs for it and will replace them when I get them. I installed a set Schaller Straplocks and replaced the neck plate with an engraved Squire logoed one. Here's Debbie: I might still paint her but for now I'm just lovin' the way she sounds! Not bad for a slab of plywood!
