Impromptu hangs with @verbageddon, and his new pieced-together “Jakuar” is blowing my mind grapes! He got the ultra-light paulownia body from Guitar Mill, a ‘65 neck for a STEAL, a '63 vibrato, AV65 Fender pickups and Marr-style wiring. It weighs almost nothing and sounds so good, really resonant and bright. Wow. Oh, and he finished it himself in Shell Pink! Way to go, man! #guitar #project #jaguar #fender #build #partscaster #shellpink #pink #fenderjaguar #jakuar #johnnymarr

Frankenstang strikes again. Freshly fitted with a Coronado neck complete with F tuners. Topped off with a brand new M6 from @masterybridge. This thing plays like a champ and sound like a beast. I hope @tre_michael will be pleased when he gets back from touring with @verbandvibrato and #fatherjohnmisty. #guitar #fender #offset #mustang #coronado #masterybridge #partscaster #frankenstang (at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar)

No signal :: Partscaster Fender Tele [7.4 lbs]

A relic’d partscaster Tele with a history of random signal loss in for a while-you-wait repair.  This has been through a couple other shops in the area and ended up on my bench for an emergency fix last week.  I did the usual checking of all connections by eye, with a meter, reflowing suspect joints and physically stressing connections while the guitar was connected to an amp.  I even checked the resistance of both pickups to make sure there wasn’t a broken coil.  Something I did ended up fixing the no-output issue, but I don’t know exactly what was the cause.  Not exactly the most reassuring of repairs, but I made sure to shake, prod and bang on the guitar as much as I could before it left with the player.  Good thing it is a relic!

Note that the fix got the player through the gig so now only time will tell if whatever fix I did will last.
