So I've fallen in love with the Stagg 'Vintage T' model:



.. and was considering picking one up, although after replacing the ugmo neck, shitty vintage saddles and ashtray bridge and possibly-shite pickups, I might as well just make a parts one myself.

BUT.. any idea about that scratchplate? Ever seen it on a different model?

It's like an adapted Cabronita job - happy to lasercut you one to save you buying that uggo thing. Do an bitsa tele.

HACTUALLY, looking again, it's just a cut-down regular tele guard with a notch out of it for the soapbar. I could do you one of those piece of piss.

Not a million miles from the Aerodyne Tele, that.

You truly are a good one, Timmoh.

But what about the shapely curve by the bridge? Seems mighty tricksome..

It's like the Doogcaster and the Black Francis Contemporary Tele had a wee babby. UNGH

As I understand it, the Aerodyne series was a bit more extended in Japan where they came in different colours and such. I think the only ones that were exported were the tele and a HSS strat, also without pick guard and with a carved top. There were basses too but I don't know if they were exported or not.

Yes, I've seen it on a Chinese Cabronita copy. It was really nice, painted white with black scratchplate and Artec pickups. I looked through my bookmarks and couldn't find it, but some links to Chinese guitars yielded pages that were gone, so it was probably sold.

I do have a pic of it somewhere, I can send it to you if you want.

edit: actually not the same, even cooler looking

Just got back from my evening cycle ride, which takes me past many of my teenage bongo-smoking haunts. Nice to ride past crap Corsas as the kids of today hit the crappy flatpress and get spooked trying to work out if I'm a copper.

Yep.

Well, sort of. It's with all my other stuff back in Ireland. I only have access to an acoustic these days.

Unless he likes the neck P-90 instead of a Jazzmaster pickup.

When those Squiers came out I thought they were really cool cause I've always wanted to do that combo...but the more I look at it the neck pickups just look weird and huge set inside a tele pickguard like that.

A new neck and set of saddles for the Stagg may ultimately be the most no-nonsense and wallet-friendly route, and have the added benefit of not giving you a weird guitar full of extra pickguard holes, exposed neck pocket divots and superfluous bucker routing showing afterward like a CV/VM Squier or MIM Fender body would if adapted to this style.

The original Aerodynes were all black with cream binding and were just the Jazz Bass, Telecaster and Stratocaster (I have the JB&Tele), a couple years later the other colours, and the Precision Bass came along.

Dang, I did not know about these. I guess a new bridge AND a scratchplate is not too big a deal, specially since it's already a string-thru (do not want toploader)

I think I could definitely vibe with the weird microswitch and neck route holes for da tswiss cheese steez. Not sure about the new pup route route..

Yeah, that's kinda my thinking.. P90s are just about the right side of 'huge' in this context, the JMs look kinda goofy.. I'm gonna some kisekae action tonight and see if it works at all.

Thanks for all the science y'all have dropped guys, much appreciated.

If I could stick a Tele bridge into a Squier Cabronita Mit Bigsby, that'd also be rad.

SO MANY CHOICES, GUYS
