That's right, for all you single people out there.


Single Person (Noun)

Definition: Someone who owns or loves a single cut guitar.


Single people are cool with me, they aren't as horny as those double cut people. Less chance of getting poked. ;)


Anyways, let's get to some pictures and stories about some lovely single cuts.


My Telecaster:


Bright red, maple neck, a beauty. I built it last summer from a slew of parts, some of which I don't know the origin. The bridge, for example. I've been told many things, but the most plausible answer I've gotten is late 90s GL, or a MIM Toploader. It has a vintage Epi HB in the neck, and a standard single in the bridge. It has a light yellow, 3 ply pickguard, and knobs off of an old broken amp. I was told it has pots from a Squier, a switch from a MIJ, and the body of a MIM. The neck was bought after the initial purchase of the guitar, due to the other one breaking at the heel during shipping, it's a MIM. I haven't gone over everything parts wise, nobody cares about that, time for some pics. :D








Though it's getting a bit battered, I love it to death. One of the brackets for the HB is broken, so I use a tuner gear as compensation so slightly equalize the height. It still leans, and this causes it to be off center with the strings, but I love the sound it gives, so I really don't want to replace it now.


Cheers, and let your singles mingle.
