    I made the body a few months back and put this togehter soon afterwards just havent posted it yet. Its a mini squire strat bridge pickup wired to a few thick pieces of aluminum similar to a Tele bridge pup. Switch:
    Up- bypasses pots
    Middle- off
    Down- signal goes to pots

    The truss rod in the neck cannot be adjusted but seems stable. It is not ideal for fretting but it makes a damn near perfect slide guitar. Which is what I'm using it for, it has become my primary slide guitar besides my acoustic which I use for everything. The tone is very similar to a Tele, but I intend to get a proper set of tele pups and controls sooner or later- this is good enough for now. Perfect for those peircing Muddy Waters tones.

    P.s. the bridge has two thick steel screws under it to raise it up to accomodate slide better. The saddles themselves anre a bit rusted and made of very soft metal that I dont care to mess with unless I have to.
