'51 P's are nice, but let's face it...real men play Broncos. A few observations: Bridge: The standard 2 1/4" string spacing Fender bridge works fine, plenty of room on the fretboard. My right hand has gotten used to that bridge, plus it has four saddles (not that there's anything wrong with the stock Bronco bridge). I had that bridge for a '51 P project, but I think it would be repetitive of some other stuff, so I'll go with a short scale version of that plan. Pickup: I replaced the pickup with an Am Std Strat neck or middle pickup. I wanted to use the black covers and knobs which had been setting in a drawer for years. I was going to put the black cover on the Bronco pickup, but I think the cover is glued on. If your cover doesn't want to come off leave it there, bad things can happen if you try to pry it loose. The stock pickup sounded fine, btw. The pickguard needs to be shifted tothe left about 1/16" to center the pickup with the strings. Tuners: I think Squier Affinity P Bass tuners (closed gear) will work with only having to redrill the little holes. I believe the bushings will fit the big holes. They're cheap and have a much larger ring gear than the Bronco tuners, plus they're clover leaf. I'll update on the headstock end when it happens. Strings: I think it had EB RW's. I put on a used set of TI JF324s for the same reason I used the other parts, they were in a drawer. They sound real good, but I can't handle the light tension so I ordered some DT 760FM's. This will end up with two pickups and a series option. The controls will look like they do now, but will do more. It'll get a 6-way rotary switch for pickup and cap selection, and a 500K p/p pot for master volume and series/parallel.
