ktrip Posted March 14, 2009 Report Share Posted March 14, 2009 A friends band has just finished recording and I fell in love with the guitarist's tone. I want to develop a lead tone similar to his for some stuff, but he plays an SG which doesn't really compare with a tele. I am planning on building another tele within the coming months, and waned to put a humbucker in it but have it look like a regular tele. The plan is to put an extra route under the pickguard and place a humbucker under the pickguard. Will this work? I thought about taking off most of the thickness on the back of the pickguard at the humbucker to allow the smallest hight between the pup and the strings. Will the pickguard make any significant effects? Also, will this even work? for wiring, I'll just put in an extra switch, or try and find a way to use a push/pull pot to engage the hb.
