    I found that with my cheapo router, the bits I was using (a cheapo eBay Chinese set) also wouldn't grip in the chuck properly. I bought a good quality single bit (that cost more than the whole...

    I'd email Adam. You really want a new kit. I know it's awkward being in Sweden, but that's really not at all good. You should at least get some money back.

    Sounds wrong. A treble bleed won't stop hum.

    The one reason for hum is that the jack socket connections have been reversed, so that the signal is connected to the screen connection on the jack...

    It's mainly about the magnets used. Alnico 3 (used in the Hot Classics) is the weakest of the Alnico grades. Supposedly Alnico 3 was used in the pre '55 pickups, though in reality it was often...

    The neck pocket always looks fine in relation to the fit of the pickguard, and then the control cavity plate into the pickguard cut-out for it. It's just that the bridge pickup rout is always coming...

    Nice.

    It's definitely worth glueing a cocktail stick (or a sanded down wooden skewer if a cocktail stick is too loose) in the old strap button hole to give it a bit of support before you screw...

    Nice.

    Has anyone at PBG simply assembled one to see if they intonate correctly? Because there certainly seem to be issues with a lot (if not all) of the Teles that simply shouldn't be there for customers...

    Yes. You can't shield the interior of a hollow body. The best you can do is use shielded cable throughout to minimise noise pickup (not the standard kit thin unshielded single core wire).

    Yes. it's a right-handed guitar. Bridge angle and control position confirm it.
