Nice one mate! I'm not much of a telecaster fan myself. The headstock and pickguard + chrome plate design have always looked a little awkward to me. I do still really want one though, but I'd need to build one with a custom headstock design and custom pickguard. Oh, and at least one humbucker. My mate's Ashton didn't look half bad tbh

The 7970 was one of a pair bought around three years ago. The working one went to a clan mate at mates-rates as an upgrade.

Yea I found that mounting it more tricky than I first thought. It bugs the crap out of me every time I look at it but I'm lazy so I'm going to have to live with it. ;)

I have nudged the frame to make the card vertical and now the frame is out of alignment. Strangely that has done the trick, those couple of millimeters has made all of the difference. When the frame was vertical your eye was immediately drawn to the misalignment of the card. Now the card is vertical the misalignment of the frame disappears. Very odd...

Just took this picture and it look horrid but trust me to the eye it look OK

I never liked the headstock , bridge (ashtray) and the pick-guard too . that's why it took me so long to get one.
humbuckers are not my cup of tea . i've always been a strat fan .

check my pimped strat . I painted it with nitro lacquer last month
