telecaster knobs and switch tip set made from used aged brass shells

telecaster knobs and switch tip set made from used aged brass shells

these are actual used brass shells from the local shooting range. 

i had custom resin inserts made for the 12 ga. shot gun shells. they are designed to slip on the cts split shaft pots snugly without any damage to the pot. if you have solid shaft pots with a set screw to hold the knob in place you will have to either replace your pots with split shaft ones or modify the hole in the knob to fit your solid shaft pot. the 9mm shells have a stratocaster switch tip glued inside the shell to fit on the standard fender selector switch. the aged finish adds to the mojo of the piece and feels better than a polished finish where your hand may slip on a polished finish.

the 12 ga. shotgun shells are 20mm round and 15mm high. the 9mm shells are 10mm round and 18mm high.

since these are recycled used shells, the size and color may vary from the photos. i do my best to make up sets that look good together.

if you have any questions about these parts just ask. also available are all of the rest of the parts in my "vintage finish" for your complete guitar project.

coming soon will be custom pick guards with faux hand tooled brown leather as seen in the last photo.

comments and ebay feedback from my guitar buyers:

hey scott,

got the bass today buddy, and i gotta tell ya ... what a freakin' nice bass my friend!!!

i'm a part-time nashville session guitarist who occasionally doubles asa session bassist when the bills need to get paid. i've got anotherfender precision mim, a tobias toby pro (made in japan), a usa-madetobias from the mid-1990s, and an epiphone thunderbird that was set upby one of nashville's finest luthiers. none of them hold a candle tothis relic'd fender precision that i just got from you. i simplyplugged it in and away i went ... the only thing i might do is changethe pickups ... maybe ... other than that, this thing plays fantastic.the neck is exactly how i like them ... smooth as silk ... and you musthave done something with the controls because they taper perfectlybetween each extreme. needless to say, some of my other basses will befinding their way to ebay!!!

i'm usually a les paul/humbucker guy, but i've been getting thesingle-coil itch lately and have dusted off a couple of my strats ...don't be surprised if i call you in a few weeks wanting to hook up withone of your strats!!!!

dear scottsrelicguitars,
ijust wanted to say thanks. this one is better than anything i couldeven expected. definitely not like any other mexican strat. you reallybrought this thing to life. its got personality and soul. every otherstrat i've played, i set up knobs so i can get 2 good sounds in those 2toggle positions. no matter what i do, i can't get a bad sound out ofthis one.
ican't make up my mind how to set it. even though i know i'll never getboard of it, it makes me want another one. everyone that has seen it their jaws hit the floor. in one day this baby changed the way i'veplayed guitar for the last 20 years. oh yeah. what kind of pickups do ihave in the middle and bridge? their awesome! the bridge is perfect.bright but nothing crazy mixes nice with the single coils. i figured imight have to swap it out, i have pickups on hand like duncan jb andgeorge lynch, but the fender one stays. flick it the switch up andthose single coils can sing! also do you have a website? just curiousabout your other creations.

dear scott, i need to praise you like i should for this guitar. itlooks quite convincing and plays like butter. the intonation isperfect, even with tremolo and capo. the pickups have lots of juice andi can't get a bad sound out of the guitar. i've a been a pro for years,for what it's worth, and i appreciate someone who takes pride in hiswork. thanks a bunch.
