  • tele loaded pickguard swap

    I really like the mex fender pickups in my other guitar and I've been looking around for some to put in a squire std tele I have. I know squires are sometimes off with where things are drilled and was hoping you guys might know if this would fit without modification before I purchased it. fe02

    Good deals with - Jim Hunter, Hosebeast, Evoken13, ToonHallow

    Buy the kit for $75 but just use the pickups with your existing bridge and pickguard. If the control plate does not fit well, then use the contols with your existing plate.


    "In many ways, most people’s happiness, peace and love are mortgaged to the external situation. So, if the stock market goes up you are happy, if the stock market goes down you are unhappy. But the quality of life is not about what is around you. Our ability to live joyfully here does not depend on the size of the house we live in or the car that we drive. These things make your life comfortable and convenient but the essential quality of your life is how you are within yourself right now."

      should I just buy pickups at that point then. How much better is the wiring on the mex stuff? I bought this squire to mod but I dont want to waste money on extra stuff.
