2021 Squier Contemporary Telecaster RH
« on: April 28, 2021, 02:50:41 AM »
This new arrival has a roasted maple neck and an order for a Cobra-T and Impulse neck humbucker is imminent once I have decided exactly which other wiring components to order.

Very happy with this purchase so far.  I will post updates here as mods commence!

First mods:

Gotoh SG381-MGTB limited edition locking tuners
D'Addario EXL148 12-60 string set (C standard)
DiMarzio ClipLock system

Also the neck pickup cavity can take long leg pickups if needed.  Bridge pickup cavity is a pretty standard Telecaster one.

I like the looks of the guitar - very classy.

Nice one Dave. Looks a bit like a LTD tele. Have fun with this flashy axe!

Thanks. It comes with these heinous push-on square-shouldered knobs so when I found a couple of black Gotoh VK-18 Telecaster style dome knobs this morning I fitted those.  Much nicer
