Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I just wanted to share this T-15 project I completed... So I acquired this completely stripped T-15 for a really good price. All it had was the neck, body, bridge and pickguard. I had most of the missing parts just lying around in my parts drawer, and I’m absolutely in love with my T-60, so I figured it would be a fun little project to take on. It arrived on Saturday, and I got right to it. I have a set of 57 66 EMG active humbuckers I really wanted to throw in there, but when I started putting everything together, they didn’t fit, and I really didn’t want to attempt to rout out the pickguard with a dremel to make them! So I went with a set of pickups I pulled out of a Jazzmaster HH. The good part is that it is entirely unmodified, except for a few extra screw holes for the nonstock tuners and truss rod cover, so I could theoretically convert it to T-15 parts if I ever came across them. It came together nicely and I didn’t really run into too many issues while putting it together. I cleaned it, assembled it, and have it all set up and intonated. First impressions are that this thing is tiny. I almost have a hard time fretting weird chords cause of muscle memory. The frets aren’t where I expect them to be! It’s a fun little guitar… the Mississippi Mustang! I’m thinking of giving it to my nephew for his 8th grade graduation. I’m sure he could take advantage of this small scale beauty!
