that deserves a restoration! just leave the history marks alone!  :-D

sorry meyng...it's got more sentimental value than monetary...indeed it needs a restoration...the history marks...that's what I'm torn about...but I might just keep it the same way based on all of your responses...thanks

if i were you bro...i'd just keep it as is...just fix the neck, it seems a refret is needed too...replace the electronics that would suit your music and as well as the guitar...this seems to fit with those texas specials kind of pups...makes the look of the guitar go with the sound...well its still gonna be up to you bro...nice guitar bro!!! 8-) 8-) 8-)

demet,

Keep the relic look especially with the neck. Just try to look for Mike Campbell's (Heartbreakers) Broadcaster. It was "saltified" when traveled by sea and the neck looks so ugly. Yet, he didn't clean it up because of the tones.

by the way...regarding the neck...I researched a little and what I found is that when you fix bending or twisting, you're gonna have to steam it....basic shop knowledge tells me that you can't steam finished wood.  would our luthiers have to sand that?  if so, is there a way to not effect the grime on the frets?

I'd like your opinions please....

I'm not sure if I posted this question in the Yupangco forums. 

I have an old Japanese Silver Series Sunburst Telecaster.  Since I was a kid, I've always wanted to have a natural finish Tele.  However, this was a gift to me by my father when I was 14.  It was bought in 1993, at Yamaha Robinson's Galleria.  All I know is that it's a Japanese Tele, and it's a Silver Series Tele.  If you have any more information, please let me know.  Thanks. 

It's pretty neglected.  It was my main axe for more than 10 years.  And since I wasn't really aware of it's value,  it was neglected.  The neck is twisted and bent, the electronics are messed up, and there are a lot of scrathes and chips on its finish. 

Would it be blasphemous if I sanded all the paint and have our local luthiers re-finish it with a natural finish?  also, I'll be buying new electronics too...so if any of you have parts...pm me...I'm looking for a new bridge pickup(I'm considering a Seymour Duncan hotrails) and new electronics.  Also, since the saddle screws have lost their thread, I'm also looking for new ones, or a completely new bridge assembly...the problem with a new one would be that I would have to drill string holes and buy new ferrules(actually that's note really a problem).  What do you senseis think?

here are some pics to help you guys...







wow ganda demet pls retain the vintage and beat up look of your tele ...... it has so much history and story you can tell about it

demet -

the SD hot rails is a hot humbucker.  very different sound from the stock single coil tele pups.  it's warmer than the stock pups na matinis.  however, you gain a more percussive attack when doin riffs.  you gotta use a 500 pot if you switch to the hot rails.  the tone actually sucks when it's clean.  but with a high gain amp, malutong yun tunog niya.  best for hard rock/metal stuff.

so to get back the single sound for chunky funky rhythms, i use the spin-a-split mod from the SD web site.  it basically "splits" the humbucker para may single coil ka na.  it's got a good clean tone.  you'll be usin the old tone pot to "dial in" the amount of "split".  here's the link:  http://www.seymourduncan.com/support/sum96tip.shtml

 :-)

x_taxi,

bro, so does this mean that I won't have a tone knob available any more?  I mean if it will be replaced by a humbucker/single coil "mixer"? 

is there any kind of mod where I can have a toggle switch installed to switch from hum to single?

bahaw, that's a good point...it was given to me like that...thanks....I think I'll keep it the same way...I appreciate the help fellas!
