    Well, since I bought this new Squier neck, I had to think of something to do with it. I just bought a new Affinity Tele body that is red. So I guess I will build a Muddy...

    Here is a Muddy wiring diagram used by Blake Wright pickups ( Horax ), on his Dirty River, Muddy style tele pickups. Neck has a higher output than the bridge. Should be a cool project. muddy waters tele.png

    That is pretty much how I wire my SS teles...I have a special Russian capacitor for this. I will show it in the tele pickup build starting tomorrow.

    Make sure you get the correct black knobs. That’s makes the guitar.

    If you are interested, I have some of my BWG Dirty River pickups that were modelled after his Muddy Waters pickups.
    Ping me if you'd like....cannot WAIT to see this build! I might do one similarly if I can find a good, red, bullet worht modding.

    Would also like a red sparkle to do a brad paisley build

    I convert ceramics to Alnico...Probably Alnico III. Thanks for the offer.
    Here is a demo with a neck pickup I converted to A3.

    Thanks for all the detail information that I could respond to and get the correct parts. I have to draw a line somewhere.
    I will use my own pickups, Muddy would have loved them, I am not going to make it from a USA Telecaster.
    This is a replication, not a copy, if that makes any sense...
    So again thanks guys, I got it from here.
    Film at 11.....Stay tuned!.

    Muddy-Waters.jpg While Yeats is building the Muddy, I think we should try to find him a plaid sports coat for the official video. Any clues as to where such a stylish garment (size 46 long) could be found?
