    My thoughts exactly, I'd add the link as a matter of course anyway, regardless of whether it's needed or not.

    Update:


    A good mate of mine has asked me to do some repair work on his made in Mexico Fender Telecaster, basically, the main thing that was wrong with it was that the neck pickup was very low in output, so I got busy with my digital multimeter and determined that it was in fact open-circuit, I talked to my mate about it and he decided to get me to replace both the neck and bridge pickups with a set of new Tonerider Hot Classics, now since I'm going to be ordering a set of Hot Classics for my Tele build anyway, I said to him that I could order a set online for him, so, next week I'm going to be ordering two sets of Tonerider Hot Classics Telecaster pickups from Realtone Music, one for my Tele, and one for my mate's.

    Good point Deddy unless of course Doc has other bits to be sent by Real Parts to offset postage costs.

    Yeah I'm actually buying two complete Tonerider Hot Classics sets, one for my mate's Tele, and one for my custom Tele build, I'm also going to be ordering the Tortoiseshell scratchplate too, Realtone Music offer an express delivery option for orders over $200.00, which means the stuff I order will arrive within two business days, and yes they do also offer discounts too.

    Curiosity gets the better of me again.
    Both offer free postage.
    Difference for 2 sets of Tonerider Hot Classics and a tortoise pickguard is $55.00
    I know where I'd be ordering from.

    cheers, Mark.

    Update:

    I just finished ordering the pickups and the scratchplate, I went with the Express Upgrade shipping method that they offered, that means I'll get the items I ordered in two business days, so hopefully they should arrive in the post on Thursday this week.

    We're getting closer to getting all the bits and pieces together so that I can get the guitar built, all that needs to be ordered are the Total Overhaul hardware upgrade kit and the neck.
