A friend has given me his Tele to fit a new neck pickup, due to it being muddy. Sounds like it's deliberately like this - how they did it back in the 50's? If so, is there just a cap I need to snip off or something?
It's Japanese, approx 25 years old, refin. Is it worth anything? (Thus meaning I should leave it alone?) Pics below
