    If you havent already bought the new neck, how about getting one of those "Subsonic" baritone conversion necks fender are doing?

    I bought the roasted maple neck back in Dec, and it just came in. So going to keep it, but great idea

    Check out Pete Biltoft's Tele pickups (and order the 5-way switch)at Vintage Vibe Guitars pickups....I can tell you they're simply awesome, a Callaham bridge and hipshot locking tuners....certainly love my Tele finished this way....hottest Tele I've heard other than my friend's '53

    I also flipped the control plate around and rewired the volume and tone, so that the volume was up front, then tone, then switch at the bottom.

    I'm a big fan of this one. All good tones, simple to use. Just drop in a 5-way switch.

    Yep. But my wiggle stick Tele still does the Tele thing.

    Update:
    I think I'm going with a Seymour Duncan Mini Vintage in the Neck, and a Dimarzio area 58 for the middle strat like pickup.
