    Been a while since I worked on this project, but its now getting close to completion. Here's a few videos to bring the project up to date:

    Fixing an issue with the scratchplate:


    Doing a number of small jobs that needed doing before wiring the guitar up:


    and finally the electronics, which are unique for telecasters to say the least:

    Hi all,

    This project took way too long, but got there in the end. Some pretty sloppy playing at the end of the video also, purely to get around copyright issues you understand ;)

    Thanks guys,

    It plays a lot better than I was expecting and even better than the Fender US Standard I have, but that could be that the Fender instrument could do with a setup.

    The on board pre-amp is something I'm tempted to get the Laney 100W valve amp out of retirement for and have a mess about.

    So after watching your video I ended up spending the evening watching Andy Summers documentaries and assorted guitar lessons on YouTube! I need to practice that big add9 stretch.

    Yeah the add9 arpeggios were integral to the Police sound and on three main tracks Message In A Bottle, De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da and Every Breath You Take. The last one being the more difficult of the three IMO as to play it in the recorded key means doing a five fret stretch off of the F. You can see even Andy grimacing a few times playing it on the Atlanta live video in '83 towards the end of the track. They're also a bit like high speed legato, once the tension creeps into your hand its almost impossible to get rid of without stopping...
