Threaded Steel Telecaster Saddles Are Back In Stock


There is a story behind why these have been out of stock so long but I’ll just say that they are back in stock from today! I will have aged sets back on the site over the weekend too.

Bank Holdiay Posting Times

Monday is the last Bank Holiday in England, Wales and Northern Ireland before Christmas so the usual holiday dispatch rules apply – orders received up to 1pm Friday will be dispatched as normal and orders received after that will dispatch Tuesday.

In order to receive your orders by Saturday make sure to order early and select an appropriate shipping service. All domestic neck orders as standard ship by Royal Mail Tracked 24, which while not a guaranteed timed service is in my experience very reliable. I would say unless you absolutely require guaranteed next day delivery there isn’t a benefit to upgrading to Parcelforce 24.

So…what’s been going on?

Not much really. Hence the lack of posts/updates. Sorry!

A couple of new items that were due recently have been delayed a little…

The only real updates for now are the restocking of double wafer 5 way superswitches and upgrading the Wilkinson EZ-Lok tuners to the 19:1 ratio model, WJN-05. Same price as the previous version for the time being.

Finally I have one SRO-FAT that arrived last week. No idea when more will be available – I’m still investigating options for my future neck stocking policy.

That’s all for now!

Hosco Rosewood Necks Are Back In Stock

Remember I said a shipment left Japan before the hardware shipment and was MIA? Well it arrived the following day. I’ll spare you the details of the delay but suffice to say I have instructed Hosco to not use TNT in future.

Vintage and modern versions of both Strat and Tele are now available. The vintage models (7.25 radius, biddy frets) are limited numbers, so grab them while you can.

Gotoh / Hosco Shipment Has Arrived

Second of the shipments from Japan that left Japan in the last two weeks (the first still hasn’t arrived but I’m crossing my fingers for some good news later today) includes a couple of new products.

First up is Gotoh’s relic vintage Telecaster bridge. I’ve included both the official Gotoh pic and one of my own as the ageing on the saddles in the Gotoh pic isn’t representative of the final product – they are more consistent and not rusty. The two pics on the site are the same bridge so you can see how the look can change depending on the angle.  The second new product will be up later today – I need to take photos and add it to the site.

Also in the shipment Hosco maple Telecaster necks with med/jumbo frets and Gotoh GTC202 Tele bridges.

I’ll have another update later today – must get on with packing orders!

New Batch Of Nitro Relic Bodies Has Arrived

The eagle eyed will have noticed some new items added to the store last night. A new batch of nitro relic bodies are here. Click through for large detail pics and full descriptions of each body (and please excuse the reflections in a few pics – I will rectify when I have some time!). Continued after the pictures…

Heavy Relic 2Tone Sunburst Telecaster.

Heavy Relic 3Tone Sunburst Telecaster

Medium Relic “White-Guard Blonde” Telecaster

Aged + Faded Fiesta Red Telecaster

This one is going to be controversial – Heavily Aged Olympic White Telecaster (Yes, it’s no longer white…)

This one was controversial when pre-relic pics were on Instagram/Facebook. Fantastic colour – Aged Sonic Blue Stratocaster

2Tone Sunburst Stratocaster

“54″ 2Tone Sunburst Stratocaster

I also have a Dakota Red Strat body in stock but need to take new pictures of that one, and a couple of other rather special bodies coming very soon.

Click through, check out the pics and get in touch if you are interested – I’m doing a special offer on any aged body bought with a neck so email for details.

Fender Pat Pend Bridge Plates Have Arrived!

Apologies for the lack of content recently – there has not been much to report except supplier delays and freight/customs issues. However that is changing…

A batch of Fender Pat Pend Telecaster plates has just arrived. I’ll be ageing some up over the next few days so feel free to get those orders in too!

More product news coming tomorrow…

Also vintage spec Hosco maple necks arrived – both Strat and Tele.

As per usual TNT split the delivery so I’m still waiting for one box with some rather cool contents – with a little luck I will have an update on that tomorrow…
