Just ordered a half ashtray bridge for it, so it will fit with the humbucker. I'm gonna try and do the string through. Thanks for the guidance on that guys.

I'm waiting on the bridge, I will post pics as soon as I get it put on. I did not take any pics of it before, I got it at guitar center, went straight to music go round and bought the pups and push/pull pot, and they gave me the pic guard. I played it for about half and hour before I started modding it.

It is a tobacco burst full thickness body, rosewood fingerboard on a one piece maple neck. It came with two humbuckers and a black/white/black pick guard.

If you google '$119 squier tele' a thread from the squier talk forum will show up. Those guys posted a bunch of pics.

The bridge should be in today or monday. I ordered it through ABQ guitar works.

The bridge just came in today, I think All Parts was smelting the brass or some shit. I am going to drill the string-through holes by hand.

Done, just need to string her up and plug her in.

The holes are not straight, but not too bad. Racer X is gonna have a heart attack if he sees my hack job.

Anyone know how I can post pics that are on my phone? (not that I wish ill toward Racer X)

Good to see the follow-though on the project.  Not the staightest ferrule holes I've ever seen, but I bet they get the job done.  :)

Thanks whaledog, they are far from straight, but as you said, they get the job done.

A neat trick Ian from ABQ guitar works turned me on to is to drill the holes for the ferrules a bit too small, stick the ferrule on the end of a hot soldering iron, let it heat up, then just push it into the hole with the soldering iron and it will hold.
