    I got a Chris Shiflett Telecaster Deluxe just a week ago.
    Great guitar but she's going to be my 1/2 step down, Drop D guitar, so she needed to sound and look a little meaner than stock.

    So, today I received enough parts to get the project started:

    It's amazing what a pick guard change can do.

    Looks fantastic! :thumbs:

    Amazing transformation. Did you replace the pick ups or just remove the covers? Looks badass!

    Thanks guys!

    I just pulled off the covers for now, new pickups and electronics on their way.
    Ironically that you ask, check out the wax potting:

    Good looking guitar love the black pickguard and rosewood fret board.

    I believe those are four wire Korean humbuckers and 250K pots? They should sound pretty good on their own. I have a Squier HH that is wired normal, two wire three way switch, but leaves the player the four wire option to add coil tapping and such.
