First rehearsal with the new band went well right up to the point where my guitar crapped out. All of sudden my bridge pickup volume pot started getting scratchy, and I loss a lot of volume. I was so disappointed. I've had the Tele a couple of years now, and never had any problems, but I guess a rehearsal is better than a gig to have it break down.
I'm guessing I need to change the vol pot, but reading sites like this one makes me want to go mod crazy on it.
I could easily spend $250 on the mods, which is what I paid for the whole guitar. I've been looking at upgrading the tuners, so that upgrade might have to wait till I get the electronics back in working order.
The good thing is that a volume pot is cheap to replace, so I should be back in action soon.
As far as rehearsal went, luckily, Neil had a cool old Ibanez Roadstar that he loaned me and the rehearsal went on. We jammed on a couple of my songs and a couple of originals, and we even jammed a little on a brand new tune that I'm excited about. Very good times, and good things to come.
