Todd Powers
"This 1999 Fender American у52 Reissue Tele was bought by Todd Powers as a lefty model with copper finish. He's since added a bone nut, re-radiused the neck to 10"" and refretted with 6105 wire. The pickups are a Lollar T52 in the bridge and C.C. in the neck, and the backside of the bridge plate has been drilled out to accommodate a Hipshot B-Bender/Drop D lever (no longer on the guitar). The saddles are Callaham Brass and the jack is an Electrosocket. According to Powers: ""Thirteen years, approximately 400 gigs, and countless jams worth of hands-on relic'ing яpriceless!"""
