The screw placement on the trem cover says that's a Squier body. I couldn't make it too much farther...
That's a trem cover screw, point is on the wrong end for a pick guard.
Keep in mind, in '59 there were 8, 9, 10, and 11 screw pick guard variations produced as Fender transitioned.
I've done it. You'll have to remove a small amount of wood in the pickup rout. Also, Fender wound Tele pickups opposite of Strat's, so you'll have...
I have a CS '56 NOS, a friend has a refinned '59.
My CS smokes his '59 in playability. 9.5" radius with medium jumbo frets vs. 7.25" radius with...
Your Twin uses 6L6's, but your Deluxe will use 6V6's. In those amps, it's best to use matched sets of power tubes, a quad for the Twin, a duet for...

If it's green, it may indeed be a '66. The story I've read, is that at the end of '65, they changed to green ink for the date code stamp, but...
Is the date stamp in green ink, or black ink?
I have a Callaham and a GFS. The Callaham is superb in the lack of play in the arm (in every other way too). The GFS seems well made too, however...
Who got the pole? I flipped over to watch it, but they were still showing 'Trackside' (which has become a waste of time IMHO) well after...
