    Thanks. Indeed it's Karl with what I think is a straightened tuba mirum. If I put one of those through my ears and looked into a mirror - wait, I'll try that with a Tele...

    Welcome to the 'locked side' of the nut house! And thanks so much for hosting us over at TDPRI when our beloved forum was, well...bat-sh!t for a while. I've thrown my hat in the ring over there as well, being a fairly new Tele owner. Welcome aboard!

    No, here's the story: 10+ years ago I bought a black MIJ-Strat that hit the marked as a speacial deal in the 90ies because of 'american hardware'. Some previous owner had competely messed up that body (ugly humbucker routing) and my overall impression was the whole guitar being out of whack (couldn't set it up properly). Somebody later told me, that back in those days Fender America would once in a while ship 'unwanted?' parts to Fender Japan - letting them decide what to do.

    Although it has some dark spots in the wood on the headstock and i've been told that it's most likely not original I kept the neck 'cause of its beautiful ebony fretboard and built a whole new guitar around it. I like Callaham parts and MJT bodies - this one I finished myself with nitro (tried to match FiestaRed)

    Well - suppose I could put Fender strings on it;)
