Hot Vintage Tele pick ups with a RWRP Strat in the middle, Warmoth Neck Option !
There are a few faint surface scratches on guard near the volume controls-barely visible.
The bridge is a 6 saddle string through body and Custom String Ferrules in the back!
This very low-action guitar plays beautifully and easily. It is modified
with the installation of a
New Custom Shop USA Figured Maple Neck!
Theneck is a 9.5 radius- Figured Maple neck
with a satin nitrocellulose "Satin" finished and rolled edges with a
" Soft C " profile and 6150 Dunlop Frets on a great
1-11/16 inch wide nut and Ernie Ball regular
slinky 10-46 strings on a Maple Fret board and Two Roller Trees.
This Guitar Neck Fingerboard Radius is 9.5"
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
ATreble Bleed modification ADDED
It 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
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
When you lower your guitar's Volume control so does your tone's clarity. Your tone is now muddy & with too much bass.
By adding a Haywire Treble Bleed Circuit to your Volume Control Pot,
your guitar will "Bleed" in more Treble as you turn your volume down.
Now you have much cleaner, articulate tones when rolling down the volume control.
It allows the treble frequencies to be re-introduced into the output for clarity and improved timbre.
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

We move the Crest of the heel down approximately 7/8".

higher end of the neck past the 12th fret and the bulky heel crest wood

notes high on the neck! Explore more of your guitar. When your fingers
can reach more strings and frets, new ideas will open up for you-a
Haywire innovation since 1982.

Bridge and Saddles
6 Saddle Tele Bridge Versus 3 Saddle Bridge The Ongoing Debate....
If you like to trick up the radius feel... (for example: make a 9.5" radius
feel like a 10"... like Jeff Beck's tech) the 6 saddle bridge is for you. This very difficult to do with just 3 saddles.
is an issue traditional 3 saddle bridge but not if you use compensating
saddles which are not "stock" on new Telecasters.The guitars from the
factory do not come with compensating saddles. Modern bridges are more resistant to feedback.
Fender designed the G + L- ASAT Classic with a 6 saddle bridge after
he left Fender. Why? He simply learned from his mistakes.
Palm muting (something done quite a bit) is much more comfy on a six saddle bridge
6 Saddle bridges are very easy to intonate and adjust and sound Great
know the "early players" all used the 3 saddle bridge, but think about
this: for those early players, the 3-saddle bridge was the only thing
available. With the advent of the 6 saddle Tele bridge there is now a
choice and how many of those "early players"
use the 6 if they had a choice to use one back then? For some the 6
saddle bridge is more comfortable. At the Haywire Custom Shop-we'll go
with whatever works best for you-just tell us what you want!
The six saddle
steel bridge is tight for "in tune" playing for
string bending players who want the strings to come back in tune after bending
notes. Installed are **NEW Schaller** tuners-
they are very fine quality tuners, accurate and precise. *Two* Roller String
Trees for a smooth path to the nut for more accurate tuning as well. All
of the rest of the hardware and the pick-up screws,
pick guard screws, neck bolts and plate, strap knobs and switch and pick up
height adjusting screws are all **NEW**. The resonance and tone
is great on this guitar.
The guitar is set up, intoned perfectlyso any note or chord is in tune anywhere on the neck. The FRETS
are PERFECT; they have a great feel and have been leveled, massaged and polished. This guitar has been played and thoroughly tested by Haywire Custom
There is no need to alter your technique as you move

never played and always wanted to. The Haywire

We Ship World Wide on this Guitar!
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
are not a Gibson, Epiphone, Washburn, Wilkinson, Parker, Carvin, BC
Rich USA, Jackson, PRS, Ernie Ball, Warmoth or Fender dealer nor are we
affiliated with any of these companies. We do however buy used guitars
from various manufacturers, new and used instruments from private
individuals that we re-build, re-shape, re-sand, re-finish, re-top and
customize ourselves for customers upon request. We upgrade electronics,
necks, hardware and finishes and offer the finished products for sale.
While there are no manufacturer warranties on the instruments we sell.
We do however offer our own warranty for one year on our hand crafted
finished products and craftsmanship on our finishing, customization and 8
point "Gig Ready" Haywire set-up processes. Fender, Stratocaster,
Telecaster and Gibson, Les Paul, Buzz Feiten and related marks are
trademarks of Fender Musical Instruments, Gibson, Buzz Feiten
respectively and/or their affiliates. All other trademarks or registered
trademarks referenced in this site are the property of their respective
owners. Products offered via the Website are subject solely to their
manufacturer's limited warranty, without additional warranty from
Haywire Custom Guitars, and are protected by a variety of patents and
trademarks. The guitars we specialize in rebuilding, changing,
refurbishing and setting up are instruments with replaceable necks and
bodies because we have more requests to add, change and modify these
instruments more than any others. We do not build Fender guitars we add
value to them in our "8 Point Gig Ready Process" or other modifications
requested by our customers from time to time. We do however, replace and
upgrade parts as required. We buy guitars from ALL manufacturers used
and new and alter and modify them. As noted above several examples
include: Gibson, PRS, Jackson, Bigsby®, G&L, The Bigsby® mark and
Bigsby tailpiece designs are registered trademarks of Fred W. Gretsch
Enterprises, Ltd. and many other brands as noted above and alter these
and re-sell them as refurbished instruments. We change necks from one
guitar to another to find the best combination. We buy guitars that are
distressed and bring them back to a playable state and offer the
resulting instrument for sale. We do not and will not copy or build
knock -off products of other companies. 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. Calling or emailing us directly
about a purchase of an item stocked in our eBay store constitutes doing

you ask us to breach our agreement and bypass eBay and sell something
from our eBay store directly to you we may instead send a product from
our Haywire Custom Guitars website. The item we can substitute will be
comparable and of like kind, quality and and/or in many cases, greater
value. In this way we can leave our listing intact and eBay will benefit
from a direct sale. Last point we'd like to make is; sometimes it is
difficult to determine the origin of a part however we try our best to
buy carefully and check the parts but if they have no serial numbers it
can perhaps in some cases be impossible. Since we do not manufacture
signature brand items we rely on the descriptions provided by our
suppliers. Sometimes things may get by us or were not identified
properly by a seller or supplier. In some situations it can be beyond
our control but be aware we stand with our customers to make sure they
are happy and satisfied with either the purchase or return and make it
right to their satisfaction. We will be glad to refund any money for
mistakes that can occur occasionally under those circumstances. We will
not knowing sell the wrong products or parts. Returns will not be
