    I got a nice Daphne Blue GFS Tele body from @snivlem for a great price. I decided to put a neck I had in my closet for years on it.. a '07 Affinity Strat neck. I had a new Wilkinson bridge and compensated saddles in my parts bin. I also had tuners, strap pins and jack and plate. I had ordered new Fender Tex Mex pickups from GC, a chrome neck pickup ring from Guitar Madness on ebay and a loaded control plate from Stratophere which all came in finally. I put it all together and spent time today setting it up. It really plays and sounds fantastic!

    Looks great. Every time someone talks about all the stuff they have laying around I think "I gotta beef up my parts bin." :(

    An update on this one... I pulled the Affinity neck and installed a nice CAE SE neck I got from Ken Mountain. I also pulled the loaded control plate and wired a reverse control plate with a good switch, large pots and new cap. I'm really happy with the results. IMG_20200518_073109.jpg
