I have been playing for about 60 years, and probably about ten or so years back, picked up a MIM Telecaster; I was looking for that link between an axe and a steel. It worked-for the most part. However, I also got a nose for the innards of the electricals, and has this been a kick!! I have done a lot with the 'Artec" line of mods, and like what happens with them. The Telecaster sound is really unique in it's pure form, but building and wiring these guys; but I also incorporated the 'varitone' type mod into a 'Jerry Donahue' type wiring setup, using a super-switch, made by Grigsby. Besides the other 'stable' of guitars, I have built about a dozen of the Tellie style axe. I think my favourite at this point, is just a simple four position switch with a sub-miniature switch to toggle in or out two capacitors; nice clean sound, and really nice used through an overdrive, and a boss delay. Oh, I run my stuff through either a Fender Deluxe or a Hartke 150.
