Squire Telecaster came in for an electrical service.
Several issues were addressed, socket cleaned & tightened, selector switch rewired correctly (it was switching B-N-N instead of B-BN-N), volume pot secured & cleaned, tone capacitor re-attached (broken off due to loose pot), second ceramic capacitor removed (only one leg was attached to the switch and the second detached & folded back) may possibly have been someone’s attempt to tame the brightness of the bridge pickup but sounded awful when attached.
Finally the factory made a mess of installation of the switch plate, barely hitting any wood with the plate screw so causing breakout. Hole plugged & re-drilled.
This guitar is a candidate for a re-fret in the near future but for now she is all working.
