That I can't be sure of. It looks to me like you're quickly becoming afflicted with a severe case of DIY syndrome. This always leads to purchase of new toys/I mean tools. The Tiapan block, IIRC, comes with a router template and all you need is a router and the right bit. See what I mean about the DIY syndrome? I don't have a problem. I can quit any time I want to. I just don't want to. If you do this, let us know if there is a noticable change in tone. I can see how it would make building a tele easier.
Wow that tone bar thing looks neat. The holes are lined up with the bridge, I just need to move the outside holes in a little. And I want to replace the ferrules with ones that are flush to the body instead of sticking out like these SX ones do. This Tonebar thing would kill 2 birds with one stone. Im gonna try it. Is there like a router bit I can get for my drill?

Well I dont have a router, I have a hand drill and I found a million different router bits online. I have no idea what the best one for this job is. This doesnt look that hard to install. IDK tho, with the template and shipping this could get kinda expensive. Ill probably just use old fashiond ferrules and fill the old holes in with something.
Oh and I dont have DIY syndrome, I have "cant afford to pay some asshole way too much money for small jobs syndrome".
Its like the painting jobs, I cant bring myself to pay Warmoth an extra $200 for a finished body when a can of paint costs $10.

Having skill doesn't necessarily equate to being an asshole. I'm just saying.

:facepalm: Asshole, huh? Well, in that case, I don't see why using your drilll as a router wouldn't work. :rolleyes:

now im supposed to read your mind too? look---youre the one who started the name-calling, and how are we to know you meant this one but not that one? sounds to me like you expect something for nothing. sure, a can of paint costs $10---but labor aint free, bub, nor is the skill to apply it correctly, let alone the investment in tools and equipment necessary to do the job. why not just buy your OWN "2 cents" worth of wire instead of calling the guy who wouldnt give it to you free a "cheap fuck"? or sand your OWN 2mm off a saddle if you dont want to pay someone else to do it for you? yeah, im the presumptuous one here---sure---:rolleyes:
Or the cheap fuck who insisted I go get 50 cents cash out of my bank to buy a 10 inch length of hookup wire because he wont do debit transactions under $5. The same place that I had spent at least 2k in guitar work at in the past 10 years or so. He couldnt just spot me the fucking piece of wire that probably cost him about 2 cents.
