A couple weeks ago I was surfin Craigslist & found this LTD Tele, he was asking $100 for it. I shot him an offer of $50 & he took it. It needed a small bit of work as it was missing tuners & needed to be wired up. I got a set of mini Grovers for it, took out the stock pickups & put a BB1 in the neck & a Zhangbucker Paul Bunyan in the bridge. I also got a new switchcraft 3 way & 500k CTS pots. This guitar smokes, the neck is a little thin for me but I like it. The Paul Bunyan has all the twang you want from a Tele bridge with the fat mids of a humbucker & tight solid lows, roll off the tone & it nails a vintage humbucker sound. The BB1 is a perfect match & there is no volume dropoff when I switch between them.

Does it have that tele twang?
I've had my eye on those for quite some time, but no one near me stocks them...

The bridge has the twang but it's thick & fat also with the pickup I used. I didn't give the stock pickups a chance.
