    I've got three. And I miss a 2nd (or 3rd) PUP not at all with any of them.

    1966 Musicmaster II. All the tone is up under that single bridge pickup from 1966. I repainted it sometime after this photo back to a more original looking white. It really has no value, but sure sounds good.

    Squier Tom DeLonge signature from 2002, named Lenore. This is probably my best Squier. The guy who made it was having an amazing day. The neck fits the pocket better than any bolt on I've ever taken apart and there is something about a single pickup that just gives it an edge.

    I've replaced the pickup with an actual Duncan Invader like the Fender version and I replaced the jack and pot with Switchcraft and CTS.

    I'm a huge fan of the routing they did on the Yako version. The MIM Fender Tom DeLonge just uses a standard HSS routed body whereas the Squier only the pickup and knob area is routed.

    But yeah, super low action, no buzzing and big sustain from the string-through design, this guitar got used a lot in the studio when my band was active. I'll bust it out and take some shots later when I get home from work.

    I had one of each color of the bullet specials for a while, down to one now. Had a few Epi Jr's but they're all gone now too. 073 (2).JPG IMG_0199.JPG 024.PNG IMG_3388.JPG IMG_0314.JPG
