A Treble Bleed modification ADDED:

Allows you to roll off your volume without losing the highs.

Would you like being able to use the volume control... without sacrificing tone?

Now You Can... with a Treble Bleed Circuit Mod added on this guitar!


As you turn your guitar's volume down, the pot allows some of the current to go to ground as opposed to the output.

The frequencies that leave first are the highs, which leave the tone muddy and obscured without an "edge" on it to a discerning ear. 

Avoid this by using our:

Haywire Treble Bleed Circuit

It prevents the treble frequencies from bleeding off.  It allows the treble frequencies to be re-introduced into the output for clarity and improved timbre.

At Haywire we simply install a TB Circuit capacitor. We build them in our custom guitars for a better Low and High sound spectrum:

1-error-correction of signals with enhanced clarity

2- preserve high end frequencies

3-improved taper when rolling back your volume control

Hand-soldered here in our shop: between the input and output lugs of your guitar volume control pot, to smooth out treble bleed.

Get more uniform tone from 1 to 10, and a more rounded sound at low volume.

Fender Vintage neck features:

* Great Tone and Sustain

*Gloss Finish

* One Piece Maple Neck!

* Headstock truss rod Adjuster for neck

* Black Face & Side dots

Classic Walnut Stripe on Back of Neck

* 12" classic radius fret board 

* 25-1/2"  Scale 

* "C" Back Profile


We are experts in the area of Custom Guitar setup, installation, repair, neck fretting, neck refinishing, neck fitting, alignment, and action adjustment and neck design. 

The Tremolo and
Low-Low Action Set-Up!

The Tremolo is Decked. The electric guitar ‘Floating” tremolo or  "trem"  bridge is only Decked when the screws are tightened under the tremolo cover plate in the back of the guitar body. Reasons to deck: 
1- Better tuning stability
                2-Lower action can be achieved 
                3-Consistent action everywhere 
 If done properly the springs will be so tight that the tremolo will not move thereby rendering it blocked. The re-sale value is much better if nothing in the trem is physically changed so it can be reversed since lots of players still want a trem or whammy bar on their guitars. Fortunately there is another benefit. There is more sustain without the floating tremolo. If it’s blocked and it stays in perfect tune and it’s not permanent or invasive to your instrument and it’s completely reversible-then what’s not to like about that?

The neck is a One Piece for great feel and sustain a width of 1-11/16" at the nut and a "C" Thin profile. It is slightly used and refurbished in our Haywire Custom Shop. It is however in good condition.  It looks to be in very good condition and plays very well with lots of fret life.


The Classic 12" radius playing surface is very comfortable.

   With a Haywire professional set-up already completed on this guitar, it plays exceptionally well

You'll be pleasantly surprised!


It has a great feel for fingers and/or slide playing. NEW dressed and leveled frets.

The resonance is great on this guitar

This Guitar Neck
Fingerboard Radius is 12"

The fingerboard, or playing surface of the guitar neck, is usually curved or radiused across its width. The purpose of this radius is to accommodate the natural ergonomic shape of your fingers when they are in playing position. Comfort is certainly a major factor in selecting a fingerboard radius but it is not the only factor. Musical Style... the fingerboard radius must also allow you to play the style of music you prefer.


The pick-guard is a heavy 4 ply "Dark Tortoise"

 All controls and pots, switches are new with **NEW Hardware**

The bridge Wilkinson pick up is built for tone and longevity. The SRV's are slightly hotter than stock

Similar to Fender stock pick ups but wound hotter for better sustain and they are quiet

For our European Players-These Pick Ups are RoHS Compliant. They have even Vintage pole pieces for balanced tone.

   Tuners are very acceptable quality, accurate and precise.

*2* String tree for a smooth path to the nut for more accurate tuning.

All of the hardware, screws, neck bolts and plate, knobs, are all **NEW**

The Set-Up

A Haywire 8 Point Gig-Ready Set-Up has already been completed on this guitar!

 There is no need to alter your technique as you move around on this guitar.

What is a Custom Guitar Shop? It occurred to us at Haywire that many guitar players really have very little understanding of the scope and purpose of a custom guitar shop.

It was discovered quite accidentally by listening closely to some of the questions received over the last few years.

For example, one question that came up recently was, “Nice guitar-but how does it play"? 

That question always puzzles us. Why?  Because it is our job as a Custom Guitar Shop to simply make the guitar play-how the player wants it to play.

That is as good as it gets but guitar players are so accustomed to traveling from store to store looking for the right instrument rather than just making a decision then turning it over to us to make it right.

  A custom guitar facility is a smarter way to get what you need because they are the experts.

It's not a players responsibility to get the guitar right-it's the custom shop techs.

After the necessary adjustments, tweaks, intonation checks, action and electronics changes,

neck modifications and proper string adjustments-you have a great playing guitar that

plays EXACTLY how you need it to play as a guitarist.

What could be simpler?

   Haywire Custom Guitars

Haywire Custom Guitars 8-point gig ready guitar process...

1. The 4-axis Alignment of the guitar neck. Each guitar neck is checked and adjusted to insure that it is true and straight to insure proper alignment on all axis. This step insures proper action and allows for more accurate and easier guitar tuning, playing and set-up in the following steps. 

2. Inspect and Lube the guitar tuning gears. Before installing the guitar tuning gears, each one is checked thoroughly. Each tuning gear is adjusted-there is no play in the mechanism. They are then lubricated to insure smooth and even movement to make your guitar tune accurately.                   

3. Potting the guitar pickups-We dip the pickups in hot wax to reduce squeal and unwanted guitar feedback 

4. Prep the guitar body-Before installing the guitar electronic components, great care is taken to insure that all wires are properly routed, spaced, and grounded to insure years of trouble free service with your guitar 

5. Level and polish the frets-This insures that all of the guitar frets are level, eliminating any possibility of fret buzz due to unevenness. 

6. Radius the guitar strings-Most guitar necks have a contour over the top of the neck. We adjust the strings to make sure that height of each string follows the contour of the guitar neck.

7. Adjusting the overall guitar string height and the action.Once we set the contour and radius of the guitar strings, then to adjust the overall height of the strings from the top of the frets to the bottom of the strings. 

8. Set the guitar intonation-This step is done twice. The intonation is set two times with a 24 hour seat-in period in between to allow the guitar to properly re-seat to the new adjustments. 

Haywire Custom Guitars is a unique Custom Shop of craftsman where we modify guitars from many manufacturers. We alter instruments to individual or personal specifications and offer the resulting upgraded instruments for sale.

We do not do anything that would dilute the brand of these manufacturers. The guitars simply leave circulation for a while for upgrading, neck straightening fret leveling and/or replacement, neck replacement, pick up replacement, refinishing, hardware replacement , a set up then re-enter circulation as a better and renewed instrument. We re-furbish, replace, renew, refinish and otherwise repair the guitars we purchase from manufacturers or private individuals for repair and/or restoration by adding new bodies and necks etc. You may also visit our eBay store.

One of the main functions of a Custom Guitar Shop should be to hit the target the first time by building as close to a perfect instrument as possible!

At Haywire our aim is getting better every day! The job is only complete when you are completely happy with your guitar because you'll use it every day. It needs to be comfortable and light-weight enough to play for hours at a time in any situation without fatigue.

The sound has to be clear and tone-great. It has to be built to withstand the rigors of being on the road whether touring or playing in local venues. It has to feel good to you when you play it.

The action and feel need to be consistent all the way down the neck so you won't be forced to alter your playing technique as you travel around on the fret board. A guitar players instrument needs to be in tune on every fret so we pay careful attention to the intonation settings.

It has to look good for you and represent your sense of style. The finish has to last for a long time to protect the wood from absorbing moisture from the atmosphere as well as sweat from direct contact with hard working hands.

The neck needs to have a truss rod that is easy to adjust for seasonal variations in temperature as well as the ability to transmit sound and add extra sustain for players. Strings added need to be a comfortable gauge without too much resistance thus making it easier to push down to the crown of the frets.

These are just some of the things that we think about every day to make sure we get it exactly right for guitar players who need a great instrument for their passion-PLAYING GUITAR!! We're building satisfied players..... One Haywire Guitar at a time!!
